Advanced Deep Learning with Python
Improve your deep learning skills building complex models with Python, Keras and Tensorflow.

The workshop is meant to expand your skills in deep learning by exposing you to the Tensorflow and to real world case studies. You will learn:

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

The workshop is conceived to maximize the learning experience for everyone and includes 50% theory and 50% hands-on practice.

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. Additionally, familiarity with machine learning and deep learning is necessary.

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. 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.
