Description

Deep Learning Workshop

Venture into deep learning with this full-day introductory workshop that will take you from the mathematical and theoretical foundations to building models and neural networks in TensorFlow. You will apply as you learn, working on exercises throughout the workshop, and finally build your own classification model. The group will meet again in a few weeks for a “show and tell”, where attendees can share their deep learning developments.

This hands-on workshop is ideal for both data science and programming professionals, who are interested in learning the basics of deep learning and embarking on their first project.




10AM – 5PM WED 8 FEB 2017
SILVERPOND OFFICE
Level 2, 382 Little Collins Street
Melbourne, Australia

Workshop reviews

"I found this a fun introduction to deep learning fundamentals, tensorflow toolkit and how it can be applied to real world situations. Sometimes you just need a bit of a bootstrap to get your going with an emerging technology, and this course does just that." Maree

“The workshop was great and I would definitely recommend to everyone who wants to learn deep learning with real world examples. Basic concepts are introduced during the workshop and programming exercises are given to aid the learning.” – Selva

As the top “deep learningers” in the town, the organisers have profound knowledge and experience. They are also active in sharing their knowledge and getting more people interested. Their lecture notes are fascinating and can engage audiences of all levels. If you ever got buzzed by “deep learning”, here’s where you should go. – Fei
