Case Study: Neuro-Symbolic Learning Algorithms Why And What For?

Neuro-Symbolic AI algorithms help incorporate common sense reasoning and domain knowledge into deep learning. The session will address: • The challenges using instructible neuro-symbolic reasoning systems • How systems can be directly instructed by humans in natural language, resulting in sample-efficient learning in data-sparse scenarios
