Abstract: Machine Learning, and more recently Deep Learning, techniques have attracted huge interest for their ability to efficiently handle huge amounts of data. These techniques have brought considerable advancements in many fields, as for instance speech and image recognition, natural language translation and many others. In this talk we will give a brief overview explaining what are these techniques, their most remarkable successes and how they can be applied at SAL, giving a glimpse on more exotic applications. Finally, we will give an overview on how to reduce their computational complexity, in order for them to be used also on embedded platforms.
