Residual networks (ResNets) have displayed impressive results in pattern recognition and, recently, have motivated the neural ordinary differential equations (neural ODE) architecture which garnered a lot of interest in the Machine Learning community. A widely established claim is that the Neural ODE is the limit of ResNets as the number of layers increases. A collaboration effort between InstaDeep and the University of Oxford challenges this claim by investigating the properties of weights trained by stochastic gradient descent and their scaling with network depth through detailed numerical experiments.
Tuesday 25th May marks the 58th anniversary of the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity, which first took place in 1963. In celebration of Africa Day, The Africa I Know (TAIK) is hosting a half-day webinar devoted to reflections of the progress that Africa and Africans have made, as well as focusing on solutions to the challenges still faced by the continent.
The online news outlet features promising companies from the world over on a weekly basis, focusing on connecting business with technology and taking a human angle to communicate the thought leadership behind the brand. Innovator Founder and Editor Jennifer L. Schenker spoke to InstaDeep Co-founder and CEO Karim Beguir about the company’s unique ability to… Read more »
