Automatic Differentiation as it relates to Differentiable Programming for Machine Learning
For our March Americas meetup, Rongmin Lu will be presenting automatic differentiation (AD) specifically as it relates to differentiable programming for machine learning. There has been a flurry of papers in 2018 about how to do reverse AD at the compiler level, and he will give an overview of these papers including Demystifying Differentiable Programming: Shift/Reset the Penultimate Backpropagator by Fei Wang et al., The simple essence of automatic differentiation by Conal Elliott, and Don’t Unroll Adjoint: Differentiating SSA-Form Programs by Michael Innes.
