Deep Learning and Its Impact
on Artificial Intelligence


Vassilis Athitsos, Ph.D.
Associate Professor
Computer Science & Engineering
University of Texas at Arlington


In recent years, deep learning has become the dominant machine learning model in many areas of artificial intelligence, including computer vision, speech recognition, and automated translation. But what exactly is deep learning, how does it differ from other machine learning methods, and what impact has it had on the real world, including industrial and consumer-level applications?

By attending Dr. Athitsos' presentation, participants will gain a high-level understanding of what deep learning means, the advantages it offers, the problems it solves, and what challenges remain.

Vassilis Athitsos received a B.S. in mathematics and a M.S. in computer science from the University of Chicago before earning a Ph.D. in computer science at Boston University. While pursuing his Ph.D., he was also a member of the technical staff at Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, New Jersey. Following his graduation, Dr. Athitsos remained at Boston University as a postdoctoral researcher. He joined UT Arlington in 2007, where his research interests include computer vision, data mining, machine learning, and gesture and sign language recognition.
