Life Long Deep Learning (LLDL) Challenge Preparation

Abstract text.

Topic: Machine Learning, Deep Learning City and country: UPSud/INRIA Paris-Saclay (Gif-sur-Yvette) and Google (Zurich). Team or project in the lab: Isabelle Guyon (UPSud/INRIA), Michèle Sebag (CNRS), Zhengying Liu (PhD. Student). International collaboration with André Elisseeff (Google Zurich), Sergio Escalera (Univ. Barcelona), and Wei-Wei Tu (4Paradigm, China). Name and mail of the advisors: Isabelle Guyon (iguyon@lri.fr), Michèle Sebag (sebag@lri.fr), Zhengying Liu (zhengying.liu@lri.fr). Name and mail of the head of the department: Yannis Manoussakis (yannis.manoussakis@lri.fr) LRI, UPSud Paris-Saclay.

General presentation of the topic: Machine Learning problems (including Deep Learning) are often thought of as a “onetime” effort in which models are trained and tested on data coming from a common invariant source. Yet, in practice, data sources may drift and/or variants of an original problem may recur. Thus, it is important to capitalize on previously seen data and/or situations to adapt or solve new problems. Going beyond the usual setting of Transfer Learning or Domain Adaptation, researchers have been starting to investigate the possibility of Life-Long Machine Learning. In parallel, Deep Learning methods have known in the recent year tremendous success in applications, but also generated a lot of frustrations from users eager to try them out, but slowed down by the effort needed to tune hyper-parameters by trial and errors. To address the latter problem, we have engaged in a series of data science challenges with Google Zurich and 4Paradigm to foster research in the area of self-tuning machine learning algorithm (http://autodl.chalearn.org), which are part of the official selection of the prestigious NeurIPS conference. To prepare these challenges, we have formatted nearly 100 datasets coming from a variety of domains and including speech, images, videos, text, and tabular data, all formatted in a unified way, but NOT preprocessed into fixed-length feature vectors. Therefore, we have a wealth of data making it possible to organize an unprecedented LLDL challenge.

Objective of the internship: The aim of this internship will be to help prepare the LLDL challenge. The intern will produce baseline results for the challenge using state-of-the-art techniques to bootstrap participation in the competition. Available to him will be the solutions of the winners to past AutoDL challenges. However, such solutions do not involve “meta-learning”, i.e. learning from exposure to past datasets to perform better on new tasks. The intern with explore with meta-learning strategies, including reinforcement learning. The intern will join a dynamic and motivated team of challenge organizers and may contribute to a publication on the challenge design. Bibliographic references: [1] I. Guyon, K. Bennett, G.

Expected ability of the candidate: We are accepting candidates with background in machine learning, statistics, scientific modeling, signal processing and control (or at least a subset if those). The candidate should have the ability of working on cross-disciplinary problems, have a strong math background, and the experience or strong desire to work on practical problems. Good programming skills are also required. Experience with TensorFlow and/or PyTorch is preferred. Experience in GPU/TPU computing is a plus.

INRIA

Automatic Deep Learning (AutoDL) Benchmark with extensive GPU usage

Topic: Machine Learning, Deep Learning City and country: UPSud/INRIA Paris-Saclay (Gif-sur-Yvette) and Google (Zurich). Team or project in the lab: Isabelle Guyon (UPSud/INRIA), Michèle Sebag (CNRS), Zhengying Liu (PhD. Student). International collaboration with André Elisseeff (Google Zurich) and Wei-Wei Tu (4Paradigm, China). Name and mail of the advisors: Isabelle Guyon (iguyon@lri.fr), Michèle Sebag (sebag@lri.fr), Zhengying Liu (zhengying.liu@lri.fr). Name and mail of the head of the department: Yannis Manoussakis (yannis.manoussakis@lri.fr) LRI, UPSud Paris-Saclay. General presentation of the topic: Despite all the recent successes in Machine Learning in general and Deep Learning in particular, there is still a lot of room for improvement. Indeed, even though there has been significant advances both in hardware and software available for implementing and efficiently running large scale Machine Learning systems, a key bottleneck still remains: designing appropriate model architectures and tuning hyper-parameters is still a very tedious and labor-intensive process. Training a complex deep network is often a long and frustrating trial-and-error process involving lots of heuristics and requiring a fair amount of practical experience and expertise. Even worse, the difficulty of those tasks often translates into lack of reproducibility of the published results. To address this problem, we have engaged in a series of data science challenges with Google Zurich and 4Paradigm to foster research in the area of self-tuning machine learning algorithm (http://autodl.chalearn.org) which are part of the official selection of the prestigious NeurIPS conference. We also won an award to use the new supercomputer

Jean Zay http://www.idris.fr/annonces/annonce-jean-zay-eng.html for the purpose of conducting intensive simulations of the problem of AutoDL.

Objective of the internship: The aim of this internship will be to conduct systematic experiments to reproduce the results of the AutoDL competition and go beyond. One challenging aspect of the Google design is that the participants were exposed to data coming from a variety of domains and including speech, images, videos, text, and tabular data, all formatted in a unified way, but NOT preprocessed into fixed-length feature vectors. The winners have made their code publicly available and explained their methods in fact sheets, but clearly their methods involve a lot of ad hoc engineering. The purpose of this internship is then to identify the key ingredients of success of the methods and create a simplified , principled, and robust methodology. This internship may lead to a publication, in collaboration with the organizers.

List of internships for 2018-2019

Master 1 internships (4 to 5 months)

Automatic landmark detection on 3D meshes using convolutional neural networks. Anatoscope.

Context : One mission of Anatoscope is to offer solutions to automatically transform medical imaging to complete 3D digital twins of the patients, with the objective of helping diagnostics and improving treatment. One method to construct personalized anatomical avatar is to combine a canonical avatar (3D model) with medical images of the person (CT, MRI, 3D scans…) by registration. Landmark detection is an essential early process in a typical pipeline of establishing registration. It refers to the localization of fiducial key points of the related object. The detected landmarks can be used to initialize parameters of the 3D morphable model. They can also be used directly to determine correspondences between the canonical model and the 2D image or 3D scan. In this work we focus on the case of automatic landmark detection on 3D scan. In practice, the captured 3D scans are often noisy and incomplete, which increases the difficulty of the landmark detection task. (see full proposal)

Master 2 internships (5 to 6 months)

Apprentissage Profond pour le suivi systématique de cellules d’embryons vivants imagées par microscopie (LIRRM et CRBM, Montpellier).

L'apprentissage automatique et plus particulièrement l'apprentissage profond (Deep Learning) donnent des résultats très prometteurs dans divers domaines de la recherche en biologie. Le but du stage est d'appliquer l'apprentissage profond au domaine de l'imagerie biologique, et plus particulièrement à la segmentation cellulaire 4D (3D plus temps), la reconnaissance et le suivi de chaque cellule dans des embryons vivants en développement. L’apprentissage se fera sur une base de données préexistante de plus de 10 embryons entièrement segmentés (> 10000 cellules suivies). L’objectif est de créer un suivi des cellules basé uniquement sur l’apprentissage en profondeur. Durant ce stage, en fonction du profil et des intérêts du stagiaire, nous pourrons :
- Implémenter et adapter à notre base de données les méthodes d'apprentissage en profondeur basées sur l'identification d'objets individuels (instance segmentation).
- Explorer les aspects théoriques du concept de mémoire dans les réseaux neuronaux récurrents (LSTM) et les adapter au suivi cellulaire dans des images 3D + temps.
- Utiliser l'apprentissage en profondeur pour prédire et définir les règles de la division cellulaire au cours de l'embryogenèse.

Ce stage de 5 à 6 mois peut déboucher sur un projet de thèse, combinant potentiellement des approches informatiques avec la validation expérimentale des prédictions.

PROFIL ET COMPÉTENCES DE RECHERCHE :

Le stage est principalement destiné aux étudiants ayant une formation initiale en mathématiques et en informatique et un intérêt pour la biologie, mais aussi à des biologistes ayant de très bonnes compétences en programmation informatique et en analyse statistique.

One method to construct personalized anatomical avatar is to combine a canonical avatar (3D model) with medical images of the person (CT, MRI, 3D scans…) by registration. Landmark detection is an essential early process in a typical pipeline of establishing registration. It refers to the localization of fiducial key points of the related object. The detected landmarks can be used to initialize parameters of the 3D morphable model. They can also be used directly to determine correspondences between the canonical model and the 2D image or 3D scan. In this work we focus on the case of automatic landmark detection on 3D scan. In practice, the captured 3D scans are often noisy and incomplete, which increases the difficulty of the landmark detection task. (see full proposal)

Automatiser une chaine de renseignement militaire (THALES, apprenti ou thèse sur 3 ans).

L’observation est permanente. On traite plus de 10 000 interceptions par jour soit plusieurs dizaines ou centaines de millions d’impulsions radar élémentaires. Le traitement est automatique mais il peut y avoir par exemple 1% d’échec ce qui représente entre 100 ou 1000 interceptions ou plus. Le traitement fait un diagnostic de chaque interception sur chaque paramètre pour savoir si il y a correspondance avec un signal cible. Le traitement analyse pour cela plus de 100 paramètres, avec une hiérarchie sur les types d’erreur rencontrés. Il peut être aussi amené à déclencher des actions pour compléter les faits à disposition. Les diagnostics élémentaires sont tous automatisés.

Quand tout ne « match » pas, il faut déterminer si c’est un signal inconnu ou une variante d’un mode d’émission connu. Et faire l’analyse des causes.Et compléter en conséquence la base de données. Tant qu’on a pas « légiférer » sur le type de problème rencontré, c’est un opérateur expert qui décide. On dispose donc d’une pseudo-réalité terrain.

Pour traiter automatiquement ces situations d’échec on envisage l’utilisation :

- D’un apprentissage d’arbres de décisions pour retrouver automatiquement le bon diagnostic. A ce niveau l’explication (retour aux causes) est indispensable.

- De régles locales définies par l’expert sur les noeuds terminaux.

Pour l’apprentissage, nous envisageons d’utiliser :

- une technique rapide ne donnant pas forcément d’explication pour approcher la performance décisionelle que nous pourions atteindre

- Une technique à base d’arbres de décision pour avoir la possibilité d’expliquer le raisonement (et à terme de le compléter)

Nous avons réalisé il y a 20 ans un procédé type CART avec apprentissage local de densités de probabilités par Kernel. Dans le cadre d’une thèse nous aimerions approfondir la pertinence de ce type de technique avec les forets aléatoires. Il faudra aussi compléter (voir plus loin).

Dans le cadre de l’apprenti, nous voulons réaliser un véritable prototype travaillant sur données réelles (d’où une nécessité d’habilitabilité de celui-ci au niveau confidentiel requis). Et mettant en œuvre les techniques que nous trouvons sur étagère, puis les techniques plus raffinées extraites de la thèse.

Sur les nœuds terminaux de l’arbre, il pourrait être nécessaire d’améliorer le traitement en lançant des diagnostics partiels plus élaborés, répetoriés ou construis adhoc à la premiere fois ou le cas serait rencontré. Pour cela des régles simples de déclenchement d’action et de décision semblent idéales. Se posera alors le problème du maintien en cohérence des systèmes locaux de régles et les problèmes de généralisation et spécialisation.
