Personalizing Dialogue Agents: I have a dog, do you have pets too?

13 code implementations ACL 2018 Saizheng Zhang, Emily Dinan, Jack Urbanek, Arthur Szlam, Douwe Kiela, Jason Weston

Chit-chat models are known to have several problems: they lack specificity, do not display a consistent personality and are often not very captivating.

Towards End-to-End Speech Recognition with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks

1 code implementation10 Jan 2017 Ying Zhang, Mohammad Pezeshki, Philemon Brakel, Saizheng Zhang, Cesar Laurent Yoshua Bengio, Aaron Courville

Meanwhile, Connectionist Temporal Classification (CTC) with Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), which is proposed for labeling unsegmented sequences, makes it feasible to train an end-to-end speech recognition system instead of hybrid settings.

Professor Forcing: A New Algorithm for Training Recurrent Networks

1 code implementation NeurIPS 2016 Alex Lamb, Anirudh Goyal, Ying Zhang, Saizheng Zhang, Aaron Courville, Yoshua Bengio

We introduce the Professor Forcing algorithm, which uses adversarial domain adaptation to encourage the dynamics of the recurrent network to be the same when training the network and when sampling from the network over multiple time steps.

On Multiplicative Integration with Recurrent Neural Networks

no code implementations NeurIPS 2016 Yuhuai Wu, Saizheng Zhang, Ying Zhang, Yoshua Bengio, Ruslan Salakhutdinov

We introduce a general and simple structural design called Multiplicative Integration (MI) to improve recurrent neural networks (RNNs).

Webb, Matthew Willson, Kelvin Xu, Lijun Xue, Li Yao, Saizheng Zhang, Ying Zhang

Since its introduction, it has been one of the most used CPU and GPU mathematical compilers - especially in the machine learning community - and has shown steady performance improvements.

STDP as presynaptic activity times rate of change of postsynaptic activity

no code implementations19 Sep 2015 Yoshua Bengio, Thomas Mesnard, Asja Fischer, Saizheng Zhang, Yuhuai Wu

We introduce a weight update formula that is expressed only in terms of firing rates and their derivatives and that results in changes consistent with those associated with spike-timing dependent plasticity (STDP) rules and biological observations, even though the explicit timing of spikes is not needed.

GSNs : Generative Stochastic Networks

no code implementations18 Mar 2015 Guillaume Alain, Yoshua Bengio, Li Yao, Jason Yosinski, Eric Thibodeau-Laufer, Saizheng Zhang, Pascal Vincent

We introduce a novel training principle for probabilistic models that is an alternative to maximum likelihood.


Difference Target Propagation

1 code implementation23 Dec 2014 Dong-Hyun Lee, Saizheng Zhang, Asja Fischer, Yoshua Bengio

Back-propagation has been the workhorse of recent successes of deep learning but it relies on infinitesimal effects (partial derivatives) in order to perform credit assignment.
