deep learning

build & train deep neural network models using current frameworks such as PyTorch

June 27, 2019 | Nashville, TN


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.

Intended audience: Data scientists with some machine learning knowledge who are curious to find out what deep learning can offer
