Event description

Description

The most popular library for machine learning research and practice nowadays is Google's library Tensorflow. Recently, they incorporated the high-level neural network library Keras - also one of the top performers in its field - into their distribution. With Keras, writing networks is a comfortable task, producing easy to read code and with Tensorflow, computations are rigged in a way that allows for immense automatic optimization: GPU calculations, cluster computation and parallelism are all handled transparently to the user.

In this class, we will go through the first basics of how to use both Keras and Tensorflow, with introductions to the way Tensorflow shifts our thinking about programming, and how to write your own architectures, train and evaluate models. We will approach several «Hello World» machine learning tasks, including the ubiquitous MNIST Digit Recognition task.

Bring your own laptop, with a working Python environment. I would recommend Anaconda and PyCharm if you don't have a favorite setup already.

This class will be taught by NYC Resistor member Mikael Vejdemo-Johansson. As with all NYC Resistor events, this class is 18+ and governed by our Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct, as well as accessibility information, can be found at www.nycresistor.com/participate/.

Please note that refunds must be requested 72 hours in advance. If you have any questions, please email classes@nycresistor.com.
