Reading Group Slides

We have a weekly reading group. And once or twice a semester, I go into a paper into great depth and make some slides. This takes a surprising amount of time. Often I publish them here in the hope that these days analyzing these great works are useful to others.

I’ve tried to note within the slides those parts that I was confused about.

Generative Adversarial Networks

Two neural networks, competing with each. That’s what Adversarial Networks are. We can use this approach to generate novel images!

Here is a writeup with slides that cover generative adversarial networks:

The slides cover Goodfellow et al., and Radford et al. (mostly focused on Radford et al.)

Predict MS disability and segment spinal cords

My master’s research was devoted to segmenting the spinal cord in MRI volumes, and predict the disability level of multiple sclerosis patients from features in their spinal cord.

Talks

Sometimes, people ask me to talk about my research. Here are the slides for some of the talks. They also serve as a nice high-level overview of what I research.
