AI Deep Dives
AI Deep Dives (Most Fridays from 1pm – 2pm)
AI Deep Dives are a great time to deeply explore research problems which might be solvable with deep learning. Discuss your ideas with DSI data scientists, other researchers, DS graduate students, and undergraduate students. These are hour-long sessions where together, we brainstorm and formulate solutions, lay out project plans, recruit students and engage potential collaborators for the goal of initiating new projects, new AI project phases, or new AI project directions. Bring your lab groups, fellow startup founders, and fellow colleagues, and together, we’ll pioneer a path towards your solution. Request an AI Deep Dive here!
AI Deep Dive on Jan. 27: Using deep learning to improve bridge structure monitoring and inspections
More than one-third of all the bridges in America are in disrepair, according to a 2022 report. It is one of the greatest infrastructure issues facing the U.S. today. Barge Design Solutions joins the Data Science Institute for this week's AI Deep Dive to discuss a possible collaborative effort and…
Using deep learning to improve dialogic questioning for new readers: AI Deep Dive Jan. 13
Professor of Psychology Dr. Georgene Troseth has researched for years how artificial intelligence could help parents use dialogic questioning when reading with their children. Advances in data science could now make Dr. Troseth's vision a reality. The project aims to create a model that could scan through a book parents…
Detecting Colliding Black Holes: AI Deep Dive Dec. 2
Cosmic cataclysmic events such as the collision of black holes create strong gravitational waves which can be detected on Earth. Instruments such as LIGO can detect distortions of space that herald the passing of these gravity waves, but analyzing these signals is a computationally-intensive and time-consuming endeavor. Can AI offer…
AI Deep Dive Nov 11: State-of-the-art Audio Models - Speech to Text, but what else?
Whisper is OpenAI's new addition to the growing portfolio of open source artificial intelligence (AI) models for speech-to-text and audio processing. Capable of predicting audio text captions, the model leverages intermixed with special tokens which enables the single model to perform tasks such as language identification, phrase-level timestamps, multilingual speech…
AI Deep Dive Nov 4: Using Large Language AI Models to Support Language Instruction
Multilingual large language models have demonstrated strong performance in natural language processing tasks. In this discussion, we explore how these transformer-based models might be used to support language instruction. In the current case study, we’ll examine possible uses of these models to support instruction in Hindi. Might these models be…
FAll 2022 Schedule
All Deep Dive speakers invite skilled undergraduates, master’s degree students, and Ph.D. students to attend the deep dive and join their projects. Researchers working in similar disciplines, methods, data, tasks, or research objectives are welcome to attend, discuss, and collaborate! We’ll be posting the schedule for our 2022 Deep Dives soon!
