Quantum Nano Centre

Public Lecture by Martin Laforest
Join us for a night of film and science. The Institute for Quantum Computing has partnered with the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore to host a festival for quantum-inspired films. The screening of the top 10 short films will be followed by a lecture by Senior Outreach Manager Martin Laforest about the everyday applications of quantum. He will delve into where we already use quantum and where researchers are hoping it will be used in the future.

Waterloo Institute for Complexity & Innovation

Deep learning has given rise to a major revolution in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). A major challenge with the democratization and proliferation of deep learning as commodity AI for all is the sheer complexity of current deep neural networks, making them ill-suited for operational use in a large number of scenarios. Taking inspiration from biological evolution, this talk explores the idea of "Can deep neural networks evolve naturally over successive generations into highly efficient deep neural networks?". Recent findings will be presented that support such an evolutionary synthesis paradigm for achieving operational deep intelligence across a wide variety of scenarios.

According to Statistics Canada (2008) one-third of Canadians aged 45 and older provides some form of care to seniors living with long-term health problems, for example, Alzheimer's disease or other type of dementia. Because of the aging population, the number of people living with dementia is expected to double in the next 15 years, and as a result, the number of family caregivers is also likely to increase.

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 11:30 to 13:00

Are you caring for a family member living with Alzheimer’s disease or other form of dementia? Or do you work alongside a partner in care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or other form of dementia? If so, this three-part learning series is for you!
