The Limits of Proof

Banatao Auditorium Sutardja Dai Hall
  • Paul Beame, University of Washington
In the early part of the 20th century, Gödel, Turing, and Tarski showed that no consistent system of reasoning can contain proofs of important properties of the natural numbers or of computations. In these cases, the difficulty stems from the need to reason about infinities of numbers or time that don't show up in our everyday world. In contrast, proofs of properties in a bounded size world...

Dissertation Talk: Learning to Navigate in Visual Environments

380 Soda Hall
In this talk, we examine learning and systems challenges related to visual navigation tasks. First, we approach visual navigation tasks within the setting of reinforcement learning under partial observation. Second, we consider issues related to the large scale training of convolutional nets.
