Abstract: Obscure until recently, Deep Learning is ubiquitous today across data-driven applications as diverse as machine vision, natural language processing, generative A.I., and superhuman game-playing.
This workshop is an introduction to Deep Learning that brings high-level theory to life with interactive examples featuring PyTorch, TensorFlow 2, and Keras — all three of the principal Python libraries for Deep Learning. Essential theory will be covered in a manner that provides students with a complete intuitive understanding of Deep Learning’s underlying foundations.
Paired with hands-on code demos in Jupyter notebooks as well as strategic advice for overcoming common pitfalls, this foundational knowledge will empower individuals with no previous understanding of artificial neural networks to train Deep Learning models following all of the latest best-practices.
