HTC Seminar Series #19- The Epistemology of Deep Learning
Today's HTC Seminar Series presentation is a talk by Yann LeCunn (Facebook, New York University) at the Institute for the Advanced Study (IAS) in 2019 on The Epistemology of Deep Learning.
This talk was from a conference titled 'Deep Learning : Alchemy or Science'?
'Epistemology' is a big word. If you look it up you get something along the line of 'the theory of knowledge, especially with regard to its methods, validity, and scope'. So 'Epistemology' is the investigation of what distinguishes justified belief from opinion.
