Fast and Scalable Estimation of Uncertainty using Bayesian Deep Learning

November 2, 2018; 2.30 PM, Multimedia Classroom, Electrical Engineering department, IISc


Uncertainty estimation is essential to design robust and reliable systems, but this usually requires more effort to implement and execute compared to maximum-likelihood methods. In this talk, I will summarize some of our recent work that enables fast and scalable estimation of uncertainty using deep models, such as Bayesian neural network. The main feature of our method is that they are extremely easy to implement within existing deep-learning softwares. I will also summarize some of the current challenges faced by the Bayesian deep-learning community and how real-world applications can be useful for our research.

Joint work with Wu Lin (UBC), Didrik Nielsen (RIKEN), Voot Tangkaratt (RIKEN), Yarin Gal (UOxford), Akash Srivastva (UEdinburgh), Zuozhu Liu (SUTD).
