An embedding is a mapping from discrete objects, such as words, to vectors of real numbers.

**1. Deep Learning**

Deep learning allows computational models that are composed of multiple processing layers to learn REPRESENTATIONS of (raw) data with multiple levels of abstraction. At a high-level, neural networks are either encoders, decoders, or a combination of both.

“

“ — Thomas G. DietterichDL is essentially a new style of programming–”differentiable programming”–and the field is trying to work out the reusable constructs in this style. We have some: convolution, pooling, LSTM, GAN, VAE, memory units, routing units, etc.

**1.1 Neural Networks**

“

“ — François CholletNeural networks” are a sad misnomer. They’re neither neural nor even networks. They’re chains of differentiable, parameterized geometric functions, trained with gradient descent (with gradients obtained via the chain rule). A small set of highschool-level ideas put together.

**1.1.1 Universal Approximation Theorem**

The universal approximation theorem states that a feed-forward network with a single hidden layer containing a finite number of neurons can solve any given problem to arbitrarily close accuracy as long as you add enough parameters.

Neural Networks + Gradient Descent + GPU:

- Infinitely flexible function:
(multiple hidden layers: Deep Learning) ;**Neural Networks** - All-purpose parameter fitting:
; and**Backpropagation** - Fast and scalable:
.**GPU**

When a choice must be made, just feed the (raw) data to a deep neural network (*universal function approximator*).

**1.2 Convolution Neural Network**

In images, local combinations of edges form motifs, motifs assemble into parts, and parts form objects.

The deep convolutional network, inspired by Hubel and Wiesel’s seminal work on early visual cortex, uses hierarchical layers of tiled convolutional filters to mimic the effects of receptive fields, thereby exploiting the local spatial correlations present in images.

A ConvNet is made up of Layers. Every Layer has a simple API: It transforms an input 3D volume to an output 3D volume with some differentiable function that may or may not have parameters.

**1.3 Recurrent Neural Networks**

**For sequential inputs.** Recurrent neural networks are networks with loops in them, allowing information to persist. RNNs process an input sequence one element at a time, maintaining in their hidden units a ‘*state vector*’ that implicitly contains information about the history of all the past elements of the sequence.

“ — TraskI feel like a significant percentage of Deep Learning breakthroughs ask the question “how can I reuse weights in multiple places?”

– Recurrent (LSTM) layers reuse for multiple timesteps

– Convolutional layers reuse in multiple locations.

– Capsules reuse across orientation.

**1.5 Unsupervised Learning**

**True intelligence will require independent learning strategies.** Unsupervised learning is a paradigm for creating AI that learns without a particular task in mind: learning for the sake of learning. It captures some characteristics of the joint distribution of the observed random variables (*learn the underlying structure*).

**Self-supervised learning** is derived form unsupervised learning where the data provides the supervision.

**1.5.1 Generative Adversarial Network**

Simultaneously train two models: a generative model G that captures the data distribution, and a discriminative model D that estimates the probability that a sample came from the training data rather than G. The training procedure for G is to maximize the probability of D making a mistake.

$$\min_{\theta_g} \max_{\theta_d} [{\rm IE_{x\sim p_{data}(x)}} [log D_{\theta_d}(x)] + {\rm IE_{z\sim p_z(z)}} [log(1 - D_{\theta_d}(G_{\theta_g}(z)))]]$$

“

“ — Demis HassabisI think transfer learning is the key to general intelligence. And I think the key to doing transfer learning will be the acquisition of conceptual knowledge that is abstracted away from perceptual details of where you learned it from.

**2. Autonomous Agents**

Reinforcement learning (RL) studies how an agent can learn how to achieve goals in a complex, uncertain environment.

An **autonomous agent** is any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal. At the bleeding edge of AI, autonomous agents can learn from experience, simulate worlds and orchestrate meta-solutions. Here’s an informal definition of the *universal intelligence* of agent `\pi`

$$\Upsilon(\pi) := \sum\limits_{\mu \in E} 2^{-K(\mu)} V^{\pi}_{\mu}$$

“

“ — Shane LeggIntelligence measures an agent’s ability to achieve goals in a wide range of environments.

**2.1 Evolution Strategies**

“

“ — Wojciech ZarembaEvolution is a slow learning algorithm that with the sufficient amount of compute produces a human brain.

Evolution and neural networks proved a potent combination in nature. Natural evolutionary strategy directly evolves the weights of a DNN and performs competitively with the best deep reinforcement learning algorithms. Neuroevolution enables capabilities that are typically unavailable to gradient-based approaches.

**2.2 Deep Reinforcement Learning**

In reinforcement learning, an agent interacts with an environment through a Markov decision process.

The goal in reinforcement learning is to train the agent to maximize the sum of future rewards, called the return.

“

“ — The Lebowski theoremNo superintelligent AI is going to bother with a task that is harder than hacking its reward function.

**2.3 Self Play**

**Self-play** mirrors similar insights from coevolution.

** AlphaGo Zero** showed that algorithms matter much more than big data and massive amounts of computation:

“

“ — Carlos E. PerezSelf-Play is Automated Knowledge Creation.

Transfer learning is the key to go from self-play to the real world.

**2.5 Deep Meta-Learning**

**Learning to Learn**. The goal of meta-learning is to train a model on a variety of learning tasks, such that it can solve new learning tasks using only a small number of training samples. A meta-learning algorithm takes in a distribution of tasks, where each task is a learning problem, and it produces a quick learner — a learner that can generalize from a small number of examples.
