Session Summary 

Deep Learning is a fast-growing methodology used in research and various industries to help solve big data problems such as computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing. This session aims to introduce some practical examples of Deep Learning applications include image recognition, vehicle, pedestrian, and landmark identification for driver assistance and more- and introduce you to the fundamental concepts of Deep Learning.

What Will You Learn?

Learn the fundamental concepts in Deep Learning and gain an understanding of the intuition and application of:

  • Artificial Neural Networks
  • Convolutional Neural Networks
  • Recurrent Neural Networks
  • Self-Organizing Maps
  • Boltzmann Machines
  • AutoEncoders

  • No background in deep learning is required for this training
  • Basic python understanding can be useful for some exercises
  • The mathematical and theoretical aspects of deep learning will NOT be covered by this training, and they’re not a requirement to complete the labs
  • Reading up on Deep Learning would be a good start if you’re interested.
  • You may bring your laptop along to follow on some exercises, but not required.
