Bootcamp schedule

Introduction:

As data sources proliferate along with the computing power to process them, going straight to the data is one of the most straightforward ways to quickly gain insights and make predictions. Machine learning brings together computer science and statistics to harness that predictive power. It’s a must-have skill for all aspiring data analysts and data scientists, or anyone else who wants to wrestle all that raw data into refined trends and predictions.

This is a training that will teach you the end-to-end process of investigating data through a machine-learning lens. It will teach you how to extract and identify useful features that best represent your data, a few of the most important machine learning algorithms, and how to evaluate the performance of your machine learning algorithms. In this Boot Camp, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself. More importantly, you'll learn about not only the theoretical underpinnings of learning, but also gain the practical knowledge needed to quickly and powerfully apply these techniques to new problems.

This series of workshops are focused on explaining the foundations and intuitions of machine learning / deep learning along with guided programming exercises and applying deep learning techniques to practical applications in Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Robotics, and Intelligent Video Analytics to solve real-world problems. In hands-on workshops, you will work on a project to create and deploy working applications.

Details:

Attendees would have access to course materials (presentations and programming exercises as well as video resources). Help would be available through Slack channels, which attendees can join through invitation and ask questions after each workshop. The topics covered in each workshop are described in detail below.

For hands-on workshops 5 - 8, you will have a chance to work on a 5-week project, which starts from the fourth week of October and ends in the third week of November. The project instructions are provided every week according to the schedules in the table below. We have office hours right after the instructions so that you can ask questions and/or work on your project. The remote access to the instructions would be available through WebEX. The recorded instruction videos would also be available along with video resources through Thinkific (https://www.thinkific.com/). Help would also be available through Slack channel, which attendees can join through invitation and ask questions during 5 weeks for each project. Attendees will receive the feedback from instructors for each competed project.

FAQs:

Given that there are several free resources available on web for machine learning and deep learning, why do I need to take this course?

While many materials are available online, it is difficult to find the right materials for your learning goal and sometimes even hard to know where to start. Some of them are unstructured and do not have the quality and rigor needed for educational program. This course offers comprehensive coverage of materials from fundamentals to advanced topics including hands-on practices for a specific application such as computer vision, natural language processing, robotics and video analytics. The whole course consists of 8 individual workshops and is organized in such a way that you can learn effectively for your goal. You have a choice to take a complete course, a course for a specific target application or an individual workshop depending on your needs.

How can I select a workshop or multiple workshops during the registration process?

The Boot Camp is available to register as a complete course and also as a custom package of individual workshops. For instance, you can select "Any 5 workshops" ticket and then make choices for the course in the registration form. Please see this document for the details of the workshop selection process.

What are the materials that are provided to the attendees?

Course slides in PDF and other workshop materials will be shared with registered attendees 5-days before the course. In addition, programming examples/exercises are also provided as Jupyter notebooks so that attendees can run them from their browser using Google Colaboratory (a hosted Jupyter notebook environment that is free to use and requires no setup).

I purchased "Any 5 workshops" ticket and it mentions all the courses I selected. However, the ticket mentions only 1 day (8/29). Is the ticket valid for all the workshops listed on my ticket.

Sorry for the confusion - it has to do with how eventbrite handles multi-day events. Yes, the ticket is valid for a all the workshops listed on your ticket.

I purchased "All 8 workshops (complete package)" ticket. However, the ticket mentions only 1 day (8/29). Is the ticket valid for all the workshops?

Sorry for the confusion - it has to do with how eventbrite handles multi-day events. Yes, the ticket is valid for a all the 8 workshops.

What is ValleyML.ai?

Valley Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (ValleyML.ai) is the most active and important community of ML & AI Companies and Start-ups, Data Practitioners, Executives and Researchers in the Silicon Valley. ValleyML.ai bring together business leaders and applied machine learning and deep learning practitioners. We collaborate with other non-profit professional organizations such as SF Bay ACM, IEEE Silicon Valley AI/CS/CAS/ITSoC/RAS/SSCS Chapters and other AI related organizations bringing a series of regularly planned events, seminars, conferences, and workshops. We plan to cover the state-of-the-art advancements in AI technology. We have free tickets for IEEE/ACM students, members in transition and discounted tickets for IEEE/ACM members. Events sponsored by corporations or organizations may charge the attendee fees to cover the expenses (such as venue, refreshments, speaker fees, preparation fees for course materials and software, revenue sharing with other non-profits such as SF Bay ACM who helps on publicity) associated with the event. Attendees for most of the workshops get IEEE Certificates for Professional Development Hours if the courses are organized by Approved Provider of IEEE Certificates. Each event would be financially sponsored and organized by a corporation or an organization working on ML/AI. ValleyML.ai focuses on designing the overall technical program and the speaker selection.
