Hands-On Meta Learning with Python

By: Sudharsan Ravichandiran

Overview of this book

Meta learning is an exciting research trend in machine learning, which enables a model to understand the learning process. Unlike other ML paradigms, with meta learning you can learn from small datasets faster. Hands-On Meta Learning with Python starts by explaining the fundamentals of meta learning and helps you understand the concept of learning to learn. You will delve into various one-shot learning algorithms, like siamese, prototypical, relation and memory-augmented networks by implementing them in TensorFlow and Keras. As you make your way through the book, you will dive into state-of-the-art meta learning algorithms such as MAML, Reptile, and CAML. You will then explore how to learn quickly with Meta-SGD and discover how you can perform unsupervised learning using meta learning with CACTUs. In the concluding chapters, you will work through recent trends in meta learning such as adversarial meta learning, task agnostic meta learning, and meta imitation learning. By the end of this book, you will be familiar with state-of-the-art meta learning algorithms and able to enable human-like cognition for your machine learning models.

Chapter 9. Recent Advancements and Next Steps

Congratulations! We've made it to the final chapter. We've come a long way. We started off with meta learning fundamentals and then we saw several one-shot learning algorithms such as siamese, prototypical, matching, and relation networks. Later, we also saw how NTM stores and retrieves information. Going ahead, we saw interesting meta learning algorithms such as MAML, Reptile, and Meta-SGD. We saw how these algorithms find an optimal initial parameter. Now, we'll see some of the recent advancements in meta learning. We'll learn about how task agnostic meta learning is used for reducing task bias in meta learning and how meta learning is used in the imitation learning system. Then, we'll see how can we apply MAML in an unsupervised learning setting using the CACTUs algorithm. Later, we'll learn about a deep meta learning algorithm called learning to learn in the concept space.

In this chapter, you'll learn about the following:

  • Task-agnostic meta...
