About the presentation
Assistant Professor Zhao develops computational and experimental methods to predict human behaviors and diagnose people with neuropsychiatric disorders. In this talk, Zhao will discuss her recent innovations on data and models. As an example, she will elaborate findings that decipher the neurobehavioral signature of autism. She will then demonstrate deep learning models that are able to learn semantic attributes from complex natural scenes, leading to breakthrough performance in attention prediction and identifying people with autism.
