ACM@UIOWA: Tech Talk with Professor Tianbao Yang - Artificial Intelligence: Deep AUC Maximization

Friday, September 24, 2021 5:00pm to 6:45pm
Seamans Center
Abstract: In this talk, I will present our recent research on a new learning paradigm of deep learning by AUC maximization (including both AUROC and AUPRC). I will present a new surrogate loss for AUROC and non-convex min-max optimization algorithms for solving deep AUROC maximization problem.  Then, I will present our recent work on non-convex optimization algorithms for solving deep AUPRC maximization problem. I will also talk about their applications in medical image classification and…
