Location: 

ILC 140

Details: 

The UMass ACM Machine Learning Club is hosting a Machine Learning Talk and Interactive Session with Ryan Compton, Clarifai's head of applied machine learning. 

Ryan will present Clarifai’s Not Safe for Work (NSFW) adult content recognition model. Automating the discovery of nude pictures has been a central problem in computer vision for over two decades now and, because of it’s rich history and straightforward goal, serves as a great example of how the field has evolved. In this session, Ryan will use the problem of nudity detection to illustrate how training modern convolutional neural networks differs from research done in the past.

Come learn about Machine Learning at Clarifai, participate in a demo, and find out how to get started in a career in Machine Learning!

Warning & Disclaimer: The Tech Talk will contain visualizations of nudity for scientific purposes. Please do not attend if you are under the age of 18 or if you are offended by nudity.
