John E. Hopcroft: “An Introduction to AI and Deep Learning”

A major advance in AI occurred in 2012 when AlexNet won the ImageNat competition with a deep network. The success was sufficiently better than previous years that deep networks were applied in many applications with great success. However, there is little understanding of why deep learning works. This talk will give an introduction to machine learning and then focus on current research directions in deep learning.
