CS Colloquium at Department of Computer Science

The department hosts a series of talks aimed at a broad computer science audience,
including students and scientific staff. This is an opportunity to hear about
new research projects or overviews of research areas, presented by our
own local experts or invited guest speakers. 

Participation is free, there is no registration and everybody is welcome. 

Talks will be in English unless stated otherwise.

CS Colloquium - Martin Møller: A Scaled Conjugate Gradient Algorithm for Fast Supervised Learning
I would like to invite you to celebrate a 25 year old high-impact paper from Department of Computer Science, AU. To my knowledge, the paper is probably the most ever cited single research result paper written by a single author, a then PhD student, from the Department of Computer Science, AU. It has been cited 3500+ times over the last 25 years, with an increasing frequency, this year to date alone 250+ citations. The paper also shows that the Department of Computer Science was an early mover in the hyped area of Machine Learning, since the topic of the paper is on algorithms for supervised learning. I have asked the author to give a talk based on the paper, and I have also asked him to talk about what his research result has been/is used for today through some examples. The talk will be followed by a little reception, as a warm up to the Katrinebjerg Christmas Lunch, taking place later the same day. See you at the talk! Kaj Grønbæk, Head of Department, Professor.
