Autonomous Deep Learning
The era of big data in highly complex environments calls for algorithmic development of advanced machine learning techniques and visualizations to transform massive amounts of information into useful references to help decision making process in real-time. This talk aims to discuss online real-time strategies for data stream analytics that provide concrete solutions to unsolved issues in data streams analytics, namely uncertainty in data distribution, uncertainty in data representation, uncertainty in data dimensions, uncertainty in data processing, and uncertainty in data visualization.
