Transformers for Image Recognition at Scale

Yannic Kilcher explains why transformers are ruining convolutions. This paper, under review at ICLR, shows that given enough data, a standard Transformer can outperform Convolutional Neural Networks in image recognition tasks, which are classically tasks where CNNs excel. In this Video, I explain the architecture of the Vision Transformer (ViT), the reason why it works […]

Reliable Machine Learning Systems

Siraj Raval has a video exploring a paper about genomics and creating reliable machine learning systems. Deep learning classifiers make the ladies (and gentlemen) swoon, but they often classify novel data that’s not in the training set incorrectly with high confidence. This has serious real world consequences! In Medicine, this could mean misdiagnosing a patient. […]
