The Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis and Probabilistic Inference: Evidence from the Domain of Color – Cibelli et al. (2016)

The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis holds that our thoughts are shaped by our native language, and that speakers of different languages therefore think differently. This hypothesis is controversial in part because it appears to deny the possibility of a universal groundwork for human cognition, and in part because some findings taken to Read more…

ImageNet Classification with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks – Krizhevsky, Sutskever, and Hinton (2012)

We trained a large, deep convolutional neural network to classify the 1.2 million high-resolution images in the ImageNet LSVRC-2010 contest into the 1000 different classes. On the test data, we achieved top-1 and top-5 error rates of 37.5% and 17.0% which is considerably better than the previous state-of-the-art. The neural Read more…

Machine learning: Overview of the recent progresses and implications for the process systems engineering field – Lee, Shin, and Realff (2018)

Machine learning (ML) has recently gained in popularity, spurred by well-publicized advances like deep learning and widespread commercial interest in big data analytics. Despite the enthusiasm, some renowned experts of the field have expressed skepticism, which is justifiable given the disappointment with the previous wave of neural networks and other Read more…
