PoemGen

Is poetry a peculiarity of human beings only? Can machines learn to generate poems that actually convey deep emotional meanings, just like human poets do? A lot of work is still necessary to reach such goal, here we present a simple demo in which we trained two models to generate tercets and verses respectively learning […]

[Oct 4th 2018] LabMeeting: On the notion of sparsity in neural networks

Vincenzo Laveglia (DIISM, Universities of Florence and Siena) Oct 4, 2018 – 9:30 AM DIISM, Artificial Intelligence laboratory (room 201), Siena SI Description In this preliminary work we try to formalize the notion of sparsity in neural networks defining an appropriate indicator that we call sparsity index (SI), and investigate how this indicator evolves during […]
