Dr. Justin Ellis will be speaking about his work with visual dialog. Visual dialog is an exciting new field in AI that requires an AI agent to hold meaningful dialog with humans in natural, conversational language about visual content, combining techniques from computer vision, natural language processing, and dialog systems research. Dr. Ellis is a data scientist at Infinia ML. Before joining Infinia ML, Justin was an Einstein Postdoctoral Fellow at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and California Institute of Technology. His research focused on analysis of astrophysical data for gravitational wave detection, and he led a multi-institute team of researchers in statistical analysis and software development. Justin received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and has authored or co-authored numerous peer-reviewed publications. Dinner and refreshments will be provided!
