Plan for February 18’s class

Duties before class (please review well before the class):

  • View the last video of lecture 4 and the first 2 videos of lecture 5 from Hinton’s coursera lectures.
  • Come up with AT LEAST ONE QUIZ QUESTION regarding the material you have read or seen. Post it to the site as New Post (not a quiz reply), with categories feb18, quiz, and a tag identifying you (your name).
  • Show in your journal the results of your attempts at training the MLP on the kaggle competition data. Post any question or problem you had in the Explore page (as comment), inserting pointers to your experiments journal for a longer discussion (possibly including solutions as you discover them). These questions can be about software (theano, pylearn, launching jobs, etc.) or about machine learning issues.

Planned for the class:

  • We will discuss any question you will have raised in a post or comment.
  • Ian Goodfellow will explain how to run jobs on the DIRO machines [slides: ift6266h13_computing_resources]
