Title: Continual Learning in Practical Scenarios
Date & Time: 26th of October at 10 AM CET

Abstract: Continual learning, especially class-incremental learning uses an episodic memory for past knowledge for better performance. Updating a model with the episodic memory is similar to (1) updating a model with past knowledge in the memory by a few-shot learning scheme, and (2) learning an imbalanced distribution of past data and the present data. We address the unrealistic factors in popular continual learning setups and propose a few ideas to make the continual learning research in realistic scenarios.
