Continual Few-Shot Learning with Hippocampal Replay

In continual learning, the neural network learns from a stream of data, acquiring new knowledge incrementally. It’s not possible to assume an i.i.d. stationary dataset available in one batch. Catastrophic forgetting of previous knowledge is a well known challenge. A wide variety of approaches fall broadly into 3 categories [6]:… Read More »Continual Few-Shot Learning with Hippocampal Replay

Experiment Setup Overview

Experiment Infrastructure at Project AGI

It’s such a joy to be able to test an idea, go straight to the idea without wrestling with the tools. We recently developed an experimental setup which, so far, looks like it will do just that. I’m excited about it and hope it can help you too, so here it is. We’ll go through the why we created another framework, and how each module in the experiment setup works.

TensorFlow Eager Execution

Eagerly awaiting TensorFlow Eager Execution?

Eager Execution is an imperative, object oriented and more Pythonic way of using TensorFlow. It is a flexible machine learning platform for research and experimentation where operations are immediately evaluated and return concrete values, instead of constructing a computational graph that is executed later.

Deep Learning Frameworks

Choosing a Machine Learning Framework in 2018

There are plenty of established machine learning frameworks out there, and new frameworks are popping up frequently to address specific niches. We were interested in examining if one of these frameworks fits in our workflow. I surveyed the most popular frameworks, and aim to provide a helpful comparative analysis.

Literature Review: ‘A Distributional Perspective on Reinforcement Learning’

This article assesses the research paper, ‘A Distributional Perspective on Reinforcement Learning’ by the authors, Marc G. Bellemare, Will Dabney and Remi Munos, published in the proceedings of the 34th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) in 2017. Bellemare et al.’s paper will be assessed on several criteria. Firstly, content… Read More »Literature Review: ‘A Distributional Perspective on Reinforcement Learning’

Introducing Abdel

Hello everyone! I am Abdelrahman Ahmed (or Abdel for short) and I joined the Project AGI team as a Research Assistant a few months ago. I thought it would be a good time to tell you more about myself and what I am working on at Project AGI. Who am… Read More »Introducing Abdel
