Seidenberg Student-Faculty Research Day provides students and faculty with the opportunity to present their research.

This year's conference is dedicated to the work of Frank Rosenblatt, the "Father of Deep Learning."

   Frank Rosenblatt was an American psychologist notable in the field of artificial intelligence for the invention of a class of neural networks called perceptrons. He is often considered the "Father of Deep Learning" because his development of perceptrons has evolved into deep learning networks, such as the highly-successful, supervised deep feedforward multilayer perceptrons that have been winning most of the image classification contests in recent years.
