In this episode, i’m joined by Marco Cuturi, professor of statistics at Université Paris-Saclay.

Marco and I spent some time discussing his work on Optimal Transport Theory at NIPS last year. In our discussion, Marco explains Optimal Transport, which provides a way for us to compare probability measures. We look at ways Optimal Transport can be used across machine learning applications, including graphical, NLP, and image examples. We also touch on GANs, or generative adversarial networks, and some of the challenges they present to the research community.
Last Chance to Join me at the AI Summit!
Are you an IT, technology or business leader who needs to get smart on the broad spectrum of machine learning and AI opportunities in the enterprise? Or, perhaps someone in your organization could benefit from a level-up in this area? (Or, maybe you would benefit from them leveling up!) If this sounds like you, or someone you know, you’ll probably be interested in my AI Summit event, which takes place April 30 and May 1.
Think of the event as a two-day, no-fluff, Technical MBA in machine learning & AI. You’ll leave with a clear understanding of:
- How machine learning and deep learning work (no math required)
- How to identify machine learning and deep learning opportunities in your organization
- How to understand and take advantage of technologies like computer vision and natural language processing
- How to manage and label data to take advantage of ML and AI
- And how to build an AI-first culture, and operationalize AI in your business.
You’ll have an informed perspective on what’s going on across the ML and AI landscape, and will be able to engage confidently in discussions about machine learning and AI with your colleagues, customers and partners. I’m super excited about this event and the speakers you’ll get a chance to learn from. For more information visit twimlai.com/aisummit, and feel free to contact me with your questions.
