Attention Is All You Need
Other Meetings in this Series
Our first non-review paper of the semester will be on using Deep RNNs to perform speech recognition tasks. This approach seeks to combine the advantages of deep neural networks wtih the "flexible use of long-range context that empowers RNNs". The abstract is rather lengthy, so I'll refrain from copying it here. Our weekly meeting on this paper will go over questions from the paper, strategies for reading more complex research papers, and how to identify strengths and weaknesses of journal articles.
This week, we're shifting focus slightly to look at ethics within the field of artifical intelligence. Ethics are an important consideration for anyone interested in the field of AI. This particular paper focuses on one of the largest debates in the current AI ethics field, accident algorithms in self-driving cars. In the event a self-driving car realizes an accident is about to occur, what should it do? What outcomes should be prioritized? The paper reviews the current viewpoints on these questions.
