Deep Learning Basics
dive into the fundamentals of neural networks including Convolutional Neural Networks, Artificial neural networks, and recurrent neural networks
get hands-on experience with the two most popular Python libraries: Tensorflow and Pytorch, and understand when to use each
skills + applications
take deep learning beyond the intuition and tools by applying these models to real-world scenarios, learning best practices for training, re-training, and sustainable deployment
This workshop will introduce the fundamentals of deep learning from the ground up.
Find out what Deep Learning is, why it is different (and better!), and how to use it effectively.
The workshop will cover several interesting applications along the way, including computer vision and natural language processing.
Practical notebooks using the PyTorch framework will also be covered, demonstrating how you can easily apply it to your problems.
