Why Zero to Deep Learning?

If you need to learn the foundations of Machine Learning and Deep Learning comprehensively and quickly, our 5-day Bootcamp is for you. It balances breadth and depth, and delivers you an immersive full-time introduction to cutting-edge ML and DL techniques using Python, Keras and Tensorflow.

Who Should Attend?

Software Engineers, Software Engineering Managers, and Data Analysts seeking to upskill in Machine Learning & Deep Learning.

Confirmed participants are from AirBnB, GE Digital, VMWare, Splunk, Change Healthcare plus several others.

WHEN: Mon – Fri, 5-9 November 2018
WHERE: San Jose. Venue to be announced.
WHO: Software engineers, engineering managers and data analysts
PRICE: $3,800

5 full days of Knowledge and Skill

You’ll get versed in Data Visualization, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning. These are the elements that come together to make driverless cars, to recognize faces, to market products, and to drive big decisions from big data.

You will Build

  • A language detector
  • An image recognition engine
  • A sentiment classifier that can decipher the tone of text
  • A spam detector that can triage sms messages
  • A forecasting algorithm that predicts future energy consumption
  • A deployed API that predicts phone location from wifi signal
  • A final project of your own
  • And more …

Final Project

  • Apply what you have learnt immediately
  • Collaborate with a team
  • Build an application end-to-end
  • Show off your results
  • Immediately bring back value to your organization
  • In the past people have built:
  • An algorithm to forecast the price of Bitcoin
  • A mobile application to recognize objects
  • A web application to detect toxic language in comments
  • And more …

The most up to date curriculum with best practice teaching

The curriculum is specifically crafted to make Deep Learning accessible to a broad range of students and professionals. The bootcamp is fully immersive – you will be hands on throughout. Classes are a mix of lectures, practical exercises, Q and A, supported by teaching assistants to make sure each person is progressing throughout the bootcamp.

Meet your lead Instructor


Francesco Mosconi is at the cutting edge of Machine Learning and Deep Learning. He specifically excels in teaching it to people like you. He is the author of the book ‘Zero to Deep Learning’.

Francesco works with Fortune 500 companies and startups, building capabilities in data science, assisting them harness the power of machine learning and deep learning to achieve their goals. The overwhelming feedback we receive is how effectively Francesco teaches the complexities of ML and DL in an understandable way – and that’s why we’re doing ZTDL Bootcamp!

He’s got the credentials too – he previously served as lead Data Science instructor at General Assembly and The Data Incubator. He was Chief Data Officer and co-founder at Spire, a YCombinator- backed startup that invented the first consumer wearable device capable of continuously tracking respiration and activity. He earned a joint PhD in biophysics at University of Padua and Université de Paris VI and is also a graduate of Singularity University summer program of 2011.

"Francesco is very talented and his class dynamic is most welcoming. I highly recommend the course!" Gary, Sony

"Some of the best instruction I have ever received" Andrew, Import.io

"Believe it or not, at the end I had many tools to solve real problems!" Emanuel, Twitter

"Incredible instruction from the teacher" Stella

What makes Zero to Deep Learning different from other courses?

We focus on Machine Learning, Deep Learning and neural networks with Python.
We balance breadth and depth. By the end you will know enough of the foundations of ML and DL to bypass the painful part of approaching a new subject, and take your learning curve from months to days.
It’s 5 days, and immersive. There are many 1-2 day courses available, but generally we think these are too short. We also know the appeal of part-time courses – you can complete them while working full-time. We have however seen that participants often don’t make the time and mental space to learn, and get less value from the courses. We believe immersive is best, and 5 days is the sweet spot between time out of the office, and learning powerful content to with a very positive return on investment
Our courses are self-contained, hands-on and interactive.
