Day 11:30 - 3:00pmUsing Machine Learning to Automate Machine LearningTraditional machine learning systems are hand-designed and tuned by machine learning experts. To scale up the impact of machine learning to many real-world applications, we must figure out a way to automate the designing process of these pipelines. In this talk, I will discuss the use of machine learning to automate the process of designing neural architectures and data augmentation strategies (Neural Architecture Search and AutoAugment).

Pushing the Limits of Machine Learning
Percy LiangAssistant ProfessorStanford University
Pushing the Limits of Machine Learning
In recent years, machine learning has undoubtedly been hugely successful in driving progress in AI applications. However, as we will explore in this talk, even state-of-the-art systems have "blind spots" which make them generalize poorly out of domain and render them vulnerable to adversarial examples. We then suggest that more unsupervised learning settings can encourage the development of more robust systems. We show positive results on two tasks: (i) text style and attribute transfer, the task of converting a sentence with one attribute (e.g., sentiment) to one with another; and (ii) solving SAT instances (classical problems requiring logical reasoning) using end-to-end neural networks.
