Hugo Larochelle Computer scientist
Hugo Larochelle’s research focuses on machine learning, i.e. in the development of algorithms capable of extracting concepts and abstractions from data. He is particularly interested in deep neural networks, mostly applied in the context of big data and to artificial intelligence problems such as computer vision and natural language processing.
More specifically, his research mainly addresses the following topics:
Tasks: supervised, semi-supervised and unsupervised learning, structured output prediction, ranking, density estimation;
Models: deep learning, neural networks, autoencoders, Boltzmann machines, Markov random fields; and
Applications: object recognition and tracking, document classification, information retrieval
