    Location: Singleton Auditorium, Building 46
    Quantifying and Understanding Memorization in Deep Neural Networks Abstract: Deep learning algorithms are well-known to have a propensity for fitting the training data very well and memorize idiosyncratic properties in the training examples. From a scientific perspective, understanding memorization in deep neural networks shed light on how those models generalize. From a practical perspective, understanding memorization is crucial to address privacy and security issues related to deploying models in real world applications.

    Quest | CBMM Seminar Series - Leyla Isik

    Date: February 7, 2023 | 4pm EST
    Location: Singleton Auditorium, Building 46
    Leyla Isik is the Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professor in the Department of Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins University. Her research aims to answer the question of how humans extract complex information using a combination of human neuroimaging, intracranial recordings, machine learning, and behavioral techniques. Before joining Johns Hopkins, Isik was a postdoctoral researcher at MIT and Harvard in the Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines working with Nancy Kanwisher and Gabriel Kreiman. Isik completed her PhD at MIT where she was advised by Tomaso Poggio.
