International Conference on Intelligent Data Science Technologies and Applications (IDSTA2020)<http://intelligenttech.org/IDSTA2020/>

All papers accepted to this workshop will be published in IEEE Xplore proceedings of IDSTA.

Call for papers

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. We invite the submission of original papers on all topics related to deep learning, deep reinforcement learning, and transfer and multi-task learning, with special interest in but not limited to:
