**About: **Imbalance Handling with Combination of Deep Variational Autoencoder and NEATER is a paper presentation by Divye Singh, who has a masters in technology degree in Mathematical Modeling and Simulation and has the interest to research in the field of artificial intelligence, learning-based systems, machine learning, etc. In this paper presentation, he will talk about the common problem of class imbalance in medical diagnosis and anomaly detection, and how the problem can be solved with a deep learning framework. The talk focuses on the paper, where he has proposed a synergistic over-sampling method generating informative synthetic minority class data by filtering the noise from the over-sampled examples. Further, he will also showcase the experimental results on several real-life imbalanced datasets to prove the effectiveness of the proposed method for binary classification problems.

Default Rate Prediction Models for Self-Employment in Korea using Ridge, Random Forest & Deep Neural Network

By Dongsuk Hong

About: This is a paper presentation given by Dongsuk Hong, who is a PhD in Computer Science, and works in the big data centre of Korea Credit Information Services. This talk will introduce the attendees with machine learning and deep learning models for predicting self-employment default rates using credit information. He will talk about the study, where the DNN model is implemented for two purposes — a sub-model for the selection of credit information variables; and works for cascading to the final model that predicts default rates. Hong’s main research area is data analysis of credit information, where she is particularly interested in evaluating the performance of prediction models based on machine learning and deep learning. This talk will be interesting for the deep learning practitioners who are willing to make a career in this field.

Converting deep learning research papers to useful code

If deep learning is a super power, then turning theories from a paper to usable code is a hyper power

Image for post

Why should I learn to implement machine learning research papers?

As I’ve said, being able to convert a paper to code is definitely a hyper power, especially in a field like machine learning which is moving faster and faster each day.

Most research papers come from people within giant tech companies or universities who may be PhD holders or the ones who are working on the cutting edge technologies.

What else can be more cool than being able to reproduce the research done by these top notch professionals. Another thing to note is that the ones who can reproduce research papers as code is in huge demand.

Once you get the knack of implementing research papers, you will be in a state on par with these researchers.

These researchers too has acquired these skills through the practice of reading and implementing research papers.

How do I read and implement papers?

You might say, “Hm, I have a general understanding of the deep learning algorithms like fully connected networks, convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks, but the problem is that I would like to develop SOTA(state of the art) voice cloning AI but I know nothing about voice cloning :( ”.

Okay, here is your answer(some parts of my method is taken from Andrew Ng’s advice on reading papers).

If you want to learn about a specific topic:

  1. Collect 5–6 papers related to the specific topic(you can simply search arxiv or similar websites to get papers related to a topic).
  2. Don’t read a single paper completely, instead skim through all of the papers and pick a paper that interests you or if you had a specific paper in mind, go pick it up, no one can stop you.
  3. Read the abstract carefully and understand the idea from a high level and see whether your interest still persists, if so continue to skim through the images and see whether you can make assumptions on what the paper might be about.
  4. Now read the introduction carefully line by line because most of what the paper contains will be explained here in the most simplest manner with minimal math.
  5. If you wish, you can skip the math equations in the first pass, don’t skip the math if the Greek letters are familiar.
  6. At any situation, if you get stuck or some words are confusing, never hesitate to google it. No one is born as master of everything ;)
  7. After completing the first pass, you will be in a state where you understand the high level view of what the paper is trying prove or improve.
  8. In the second pass, try to understand almost everything in the paper and if you encounter any pseudo-code, try to convert it into your python library of choice(PyTorch, TensorFlow…)
  9. You can get more papers to read and get a better understanding of the field by going to the references section of each paper(same as connecting the dots).

💡 Some tips for effectively understanding a paper:

  • If you are a beginner to reading research papers, it’s good to read some blog posts and videos related to that topic/research paper before reading the paper itself. This makes your job easier and you will not be discouraged by all that Greek letters.
  • Always take notes and highlight important points in the research paper for easier reference while implementing the code for the paper.
  • If you are new to implementing research papers and get stuck any where, it’s not a bad idea to go through open source implementations and see how others have done this.

Deep Reinforcement Learning for Video Games Made Easy

In this post, we will investigate how easily we can train a Deep Q-Network (DQN) agent (Mnih et al., 2015) for Atari 2600 games using the Google reinforcement learning library Dopamine. While many RL libraries exist, this library is specifically designed with four essential features in mind:

  • Easy experimentation
  • Flexible development
  • Compact and reliable
  • Reproducible

_We believe these principles makes __Dopamine _one of the best RL learning environment available today. Additionally, we even got the library to work on Windows, which we think is quite a feat!

In my view, the visualization of any trained RL agent is an absolute must in reinforcement learning! Therefore, we will (of course) include this for our own trained agent at the very end!

We will go through all the pieces of code required (which is** minimal compared to other libraries**), but you can also find all scripts needed in the following Github repo.

1. Brief Introduction to Reinforcement Learning and Deep Q-Learning

The general premise of deep reinforcement learning is to

“derive efficient representations of the environment from high-dimensional sensory inputs, and use these to generalize past experience to new situations.”

  • Mnih et al. (2015)

As stated earlier, we will implement the DQN model by Deepmind, which only uses raw pixels and game score as input. The raw pixels are processed using convolutional neural networks similar to image classification. The primary difference lies in the objective function, which for the DQN agent is called the optimal action-value function

Image for post

where_ rₜ is the maximum sum of rewards at time t discounted by γ, obtained using a behavior policy π = P(a_∣_s)_ for each observation-action pair.

There are relatively many details to Deep Q-Learning, such as Experience Replay (Lin, 1993) and an _iterative update rule. _Thus, we refer the reader to the original paper for an excellent walk-through of the mathematical details.

One key benefit of DQN compared to previous approaches at the time (2015) was the ability to outperform existing methods for Atari 2600 games using the same set of hyperparameters and only pixel values and game score as input, clearly a tremendous achievement.

2. Installation

This post does not include instructions for installing Tensorflow, but we do want to stress that you can use both the CPU and GPU versions.

Nevertheless, assuming you are using Python 3.7.x, these are the libraries you need to install (which can all be installed via pip):

tensorflow-gpu=1.15   (or tensorflow==1.15  for CPU version)
cmake
dopamine-rl
atari-py
matplotlib
pygame
seaborn
pandas
