In collaboration with CSC in Finland, ENCCS is offering a workshop on February 16-17 on Deep Learning. The course is at an introductory level.
This course gives a practical introduction to deep learning, convolutional and recurrent neural networks, GPU computing, and tools to train and apply deep neural networks for natural language processing, images, and other applications. The course consists of lectures and hands-on exercises. Keras and PyTorch will be used in the exercise sessions.
After the course the participants should have the skills and knowledge needed to begin applying deep learning for different tasks and utilizing the GPU resources available at PDC and elsewhere for training and deploying their own neural networks.
The participants are assumed to have working knowledge of Python and a suitable background in data analysis, machine learning, or a related field. Previous experience in deep learning is not required, but the fundamentals of machine learning are not covered in this course. Basic knowledge of a Linux/Unix environment will be assumed.
