Deep learning approaches have caused tremendous advances in many areas of
computer science. Deep learning is a branch of machine learning where the
learning process is done using deep and complex architectures such as
recurrent convolutional artificial neural networks. Many computer science
applications have utilized deep learning such as computer vision, speech
recognition, natural language processing, sentiment analysis, social
network analysis, and robotics. The success of deep learning enabled the
application of learning models such as reinforcement learning in which the
learning process is only done by trial-and-error, solely from actions
rewards or punishments. Deep reinforcement learning come to create systems
that can learn how to adapt in the real world. As deep learning utilizes
deep and complex architectures, the learning process usually is time and
effort consuming and need huge labeled data sets. This inspired the
introduction of transfer and multi-task learning approaches to better
exploit the available data during training and adapt previously learned
knowledge to emerging domains, tasks, or applications.
Despite the fact that many research activities is ongoing in these areas,
many challenging are still unsolved. This workshop will bring together
researchers working on deep learning, working on the intersection of deep
learning and reinforcement learning, and/or using transfer learning to
simplify deep leaning, and it will help researchers with expertise in one
of these fields to learn about the others. The workshop also aims to bridge
the gap between theories and practices by providing the researchers and
practitioners the opportunity to share ideas and discuss and criticize
current theories and results.

Proceedings of the workshops will be published will be submitted for
inclusion in the IEEE-Xplore.
