March 28: "Delving deep in the ocean with deep learning" by Redouane Lguensat

Unless you were living under a rock, Deep Learning (DL) is definitely « the » hot topic in the interface between Computer Science and Mathematics. It is becoming the backbone of most Artificial Intelligence (AI) oriented applications and is leading to impressive results in many fields. Image/Voice recognition, Medical Imaging, Law, Entertainment, Game solving, etc… are some examples where DL is doing great currently. The first part of this talk will be dedicated to a general presentation to DL (beginner friendly).

The second part of the talk aims to give a glimpse to what is like to « transfer » the DL knowledge to a very special field: Spatial Oceanography. I would like to show you the challenges when using methods from a field in another, the importance of getting out of your scientific comfort zone, and in the end, share with you my experience that I hope can benefit to anyone who wants to apply DL to physical sciences.
