Today we kick off our NeurIPS 2020 series joined by Taco Cohen, a Machine Learning Researcher at Qualcomm Technologies.
In our conversation with Taco, we discuss his current research in equivariant networks and video compression using generative models, as well as his paper "Natural Graph Networks," which explores the concept of "naturality, a generalization of equivariance" which suggests that weaker constraints will allow for a "wider class of architectures."
We also discuss some of Taco's recent research on neural compression and a very interesting visual demo for equivariance CNNs that Taco and the Qualcomm team released during the conference.
