Deep Fundamental Factor ModelsMar 18 2019Deep fundamental factor models are developed to interpret and capture non-linearity, interaction effects and non-parametric shocks in financial econometrics. Uncertainty quantification provides interpretability with interval estimation, ranking of factor ... More

Software-Defined Design Space Exploration for an Efficient AI Accelerator ArchitectureMar 18 2019Deep neural networks (DNNs) have been shown to outperform conventional machine learning algorithms across a wide range of applications, e.g., image recognition, object detection, robotics, and natural language processing. However, the high computational ... More
