Neural network successes

Posted by Danny Tarlow
The learning group at University of Toronto has had some great recent successes, both of which were powered by neural networks. Many of you have probably seen the ImageNet results by Alex Krizhevsky and collaborators (team SuperVision): More recently, George Dahl, a favored guest poster on this blog, led a team that won the Merck Molecular Activity Challenge over at Kaggle: It's impressive stuff all around. Great job, guys.

Fascinating stuff! I'm always intrigued by the Kaggle competitions.
