TuTh 9.30-11 in CSE 2154
Office hours Th 11-1 in CSE 4138
This quarter the theme of CSE 254 is neurally-inspired unsupervised learning.
The first few lectures will cover basic technical material. Thereafter, each class meeting will consist of student presentations. Each student will present a technical paper (or several papers) in detail. All seminar participants will discuss the paper and the issues raised by it.

This is a four unit course in which the work consists of oral presentations.
The procedure for each student presentation is as follows:
The schedule of presentations will be determined as much as possible on Sep 27. Here is a preliminary list of papers.
If you want to change your presentation date, please arrange a swap
with another student and notify me at least two weeks in advance.
