DESCRIPTION:The Informal Applied Mathematics seminar will continue with a
n hour-long talk from Steven Elsworth. The talk will take place in Frank
Adams 2 (next to the Alan Turing Building's kitchen)\, with complimenta
ry hot drinks and biscuits from 2.45pm on the atrium bridge. Title and a
bstract for the talk can be found below.\n\n\nSteven Elsworth: Recurrent
neural networks for text generation\n\nAbstract: A neural network is a
network or circuit of neurons\, or in a modern sense\, an artificial neu
ral network involves a network of simple processing elements and element
parameters. Artificial neurons were first proposed in 1943 by Warren Mc
Culloch\, a neurophysiologist\, and Walter Pitts\, a logician\, who firs
t collaborated at the University of Chicago. One classical type of artif
icial neurons that uses a mathematical or computational models in 1948 w
ith Turing's B-type machines. Farley and Clark (1954) first used computa
tional machines that processed neural networks. The first issue was that
single-layer neural networks were incapable of processing the exclusive
-or circuit\, a circuit whose mathematical computation could not be proc
essed until after the backpropagation algorithm which effectively solved
the exclusive-or problem (Werbos 1975). The parallel distributed proces
sing of the mid-1980s became popular under the name connectionism.\n\n\n
FYI: The Informal Applied Seminar is a weekly seminar for all applied ma
thematics students in the department. We get together on a Friday aftern
oon for students to speak about what they're working on at the moment. I
t's not formal - lecturers and staff don't attend - so it can be a good
place to get feedback on your talk before an upcoming conference or just
good to practise for public speaking in general. We generally meet on t
he bridge (outside the Alan Turing building first-floor kitchen) 15mins
before the start and head to Sandbar for a drink afterwards.
