Deep learning is a technique for automatically finding hierarchical patterns in large sets of data, and has been used to achieve breakthrough advances in computer vision, machine translation, speech recognition, game playing, robotics, and other applications in recent years. The recent progress and future potential of deep learning has led to immense interest and to its adoption by all large technology companies.
In this workshop, we’ll introduce deep learning and demonstrate how it can be used in the above areas, with a focus on practical applications. We will explain the technological and algorithmic advances that have made it possible, describe the tools you can use to get started, and talk about the challenges to deploying deep learning systems in production.
What you will learn
In this workshop, you will learn the core techniques used in Deep Learning. Through examples in Keras, TensorFlow and Apache Spark, you will learn
After this workshop, you will be able to:
- Describe what deep neural networks (DNNs) are, what they can be used for, and how they fit with other AI techniques.
- Explain what computer games have to do with the success of deep learning.
- Describe several deep learning technologies and their tradeoffs.
- Explain the limitations and challenges of using DNNs.
- Train and tune simple DNNs and evaluate their performance, using Python and several deep learning frameworks.
- Describe how DNNs are likely to affect your field in the next 5-10 years.
- Work on case studies in Keras,TensorFlow and Apache Spark
In module one, we will review the core techniques in Deep learning neural networks. Through examples we will understand the different deep learning techniques and frameworks
In module two, we will discuss more advanced techniques in deep learning. We will also discuss best practices in scaling and using deep learning techniques including using Apache Spark with Deep learning.
