Continual Learning

Continual Learning

Internship Description

Continual learning aims to learn new tasks without forgetting previously learned ones. This is especially challenging when one cannot access data from previous tasks and when the model has a fixed capacity. In this project, the goal is to develop and improve the capability of the machine learning methods not to forget older concepts as time passes.

Deliverables/Expectations

Develop a working research prototype for a continual learning approach

1) students should learn about machine learning, deep learning, and the respective target application chosen for the internship.

2) students are expected to show capability to go from an idea to a working prototype; pushing the limits of what the state of the art can do.​
