TYPE: Invited Talk
Watch the Interview: Watch the interview on YouTube

The Creative Society project has been launched on the platform of ALLATRA International Public Movement, initiated by the people and for the people in order to change the format of our society from the consumer-oriented to a creative one. As part of this project, They meet people all around the world to ask for their opinion and strategy for the creative society. A society is where each and every person lives happily and prosperously. As a part of this project they interviewed Dr V Udaya Sankar about his opinion on "How will the science and technological spheres look like when Human life is the highest value in society? How do we see education in Creative society, so that every person could develop their best skills and talents? What values should be taught to up-bring a real Human?"

In this work Dr Priya Ranjan demonstrated the role of numerical R/Matlab based optimization techniques in Deep Learning using some simple examples. Under this renewed context of deep learning,  basic notion of Gradient Descent algorithm was shown to be of interest in the framework of largely smooth optimization for both constrained and unconstrained cases.  Further, role of convexity in optimization was highlighted and  noisy version of Gradient Descent was illustrated towards minimizing the error function which appears naturally in the course of Deep learning. Primitive computational techniques and algorithmic implementations were also hinted at. Some hands on examples regarding these optimization schemes and their application to deep learning were demonstrated in action.
