On March 20, 2018, I gave a talk to the Machine Learning Research Group (MLRG) at the University of Guelph on continual learning, also called lifelong learning, which has been a hot research topic in recent years. Here, I reviewed a super interesting NIPS 2017 paper called Gradient Episodic Memory for Continual Learning [1] from Facebook AI Research (FAIR).
