Introduction to deep learning with Python



Summer camp
Computational and Data Systems Initiative

This 5-day workshop is an introductory, short course on deep learning. It is designed for anyone who wishes to obtain basic knowledge of machine learning and explore deep learning from scratch. The workshop provides you with a practical introduction to basic and selected topics on deep learning through the Keras framework in Python.

The outcomes of this workshop include knowledge of:
     - The building blocks of neural networks
     - Introduction to Keras and TensorFlow
     - Classification and regression with neural networks
     - Fundamentals and workflows of machine learning
     - Deep learning for time series (and text)

     - Basic Python programming experience. Familiarity with NumPy library would be helpful, however it is not required.
     - High school-level mathematics.

Date: Monday to Friday, 22 to 26 August, 2022.
Time: 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (with a lunch break from 12 to 1:30).
Location: Burnside Hall room 511 (5th floor), inside the Geographic Information Center.
