Deep Spatiotemporal Models for Sequence Prediction


Many real-world machine learning applications require learning the association between input and output sequences. Some of these applications involve spatiotemporal sequences in both the input and output. Examples can be found in weather forecasting, visual object tracking, crowd analysis, and many other video processing applications. In this talk, some recent deep spatiotemporal models we have developed in recent years will be presented. While different potential applications will be highlighted, focus will be put on a collaborative project with the Hong Kong Observatory to apply our models to a challenging precipitation nowcasting application.
