Event description


Zero to Deep Learning 3 weekends course

This is a 3 weekends course covering:

Intro to Machine Learning with Python (Nov 5-6)
Intro do Deep Learning with Python (Nov 19-20)
Advanced Deep Learning with Tensorflow (Dec 3-4)


The workshop is meant to introduce you to the concepts of machine learning and deep learning and provide a solid base to build deeper knowledge in the field.

First weekend

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 and Bokeh
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

Second weekend

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

Third weekend

Review of fundamental deep learning architectures (Fully Connected, Convolutional, Recurrent)
Build and train a model with Tensorflow / TFLearn
Build and train a model with pure Tensorflow
Online training / continous training
Custom architectures and loss functions
Review of famous architectures (Inception, Wavenet)
Setting up a machine for deep learning / serving a model

Is lunch provided

Yes! Lunch is included.

Are there any prerequisites?

Previous experience programming in Python or in other languages is advised to make best use of the workshop.

Interested in just one or two of the weekends? Check out our 1-weekend courses:

Python for Machine Learning course

Intro to Deep Learning with Python course

Advanced Deep Learning course

Why python?

In the last 2 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 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.


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 at The Data incubator.
