Event description


Zero to Deep Learning® 1 Week International Machine Learning Bootcamp

Finally! A 1 week full time training bringing you from Zero to Deep Learning® with Keras and Tensorflow. This 1 week course is a fulltime introduction to modern Machine Learning and Deep Learning techniques using Python and it is designed for Software Engineers and Data Analysts looking for a transition to Machine Learning & Deep Learning.

The course covers:

  • Introduction to Machine Learning with Python & Scikit Learn
  • Introduction to Deep Learning with Keras
  • Advanced Deep Learning with Tensorflow

and it includes: accommodation in San Francisco, meetups with experts, mentoring for your projects, happy hours, access to coworking space and more!

Curriculum details:

The workshop introduces you to the concepts of Machine Learning and Deep Learning and it provide a solid base to build deeper knowledge in the field.

Introduction to Machine Learning with Python & Scikit Learn

  • Recognize problems that can be solved with Machine Learning
  • Select the right technique (is it a classification problem? a regression? needs preprocessing?)
  • Load and manipulate data with Pandas
  • Visualize and explore data with Matplotlib
  • Build regression, classification and clustering models with Scikit-Learn
  • Evaluate model performance with Scikit-Learn
  • Build, train and serve a predictive model using Python, Flask and Heroku

Introduction to Deep Learning with Keras

  • Fundamentals of deep learning theory
  • How to approach and solve a problem with deep learning
  • Build and train a deep fully connected model with Keras
  • Build and train a Convolutional Neural Net with Keras on a cloud GPU machine
  • Build and train a Recurrent Neural Net with Keras on a cloud GPU machine
  • Application to Image processing/Text processing

Advanced Deep Learning with Tensorflow

  • Fundamentals of Tensorflow
  • Build and train a model with Tensorflow and with TFLearn
  • Custom architectures and loss functions

Are there any prerequisites?

Previous experience programming in Python or in other languages is advised to make best use of the workshop. You can read more about how to prepare here.

Why python?

In the last few years Python has become a de-facto standard in data science and is widely adopted by most major companies. Reasons for this success include:

  • large set of mature data science libraries => most needs covered
  • worldwide community of enthusiasts => get help when you need it
  • easy to learn, read and write => start contributing immediately
  • supports both functional and object oriented coding => versatile and powerful
  • full stack programming language => easier interaction between data scientists and software engineers

Why Keras?

Keras is a high-level neural networks api and library that allows to simply build and train deep learning models using Tensorflow or Theano as backend. Written in Python it focuses on enabling fast experimentation. It recently became the preferred high level api for Tensorflow and it thus provides a great entry point to approach Tensorflow. Keras highlights:

  • Allows for easy and fast prototyping
  • Supports Fully connected, Convolutional and Recurrent
  • Supports arbitrary connectivity schemes
  • Runs seamlessly on CPU and GPU
  • Integrates very well with Tensorflow and Tensorboard

Why Tensorflow?

There are many open source Deep Learning libraries. Tensorflow is backed by Google and is quickly becoming one of the most used libraries in the fields. It has a large and growing community of users and it is versatile and easy to learn. Highlights include

  • largest community of developers
  • state of the art models and nodes
  • high scalability, can be distributed on many GPUs
  • production performance and deployment tools
  • very versatile and powerful for distributed high performance computing beyond neural networks


The course is lead by Francesco Mosconi. Ph.D. in Physics and Data Scientist at Catalit LLC, he was formerly co-founder and Chief Data Officer at Spire, a YC-backed company that invented the first consumer wearable device capable of continuously tracking respiration and physical activity. Machine Learning and python expert he also served as Data Science lead instructor at General Assembly and The Data incubator.
