Deep Learning Workshop in August 2017

Deep Learning

The GCOE Dresden is happy to announce our first Deep Learning workshop organised in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Scionics and Helmholz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf.

This hands-on course will take you from 0 to 100 in Deep Learning with Keras (a high-level neural networks API, written in Python and capable of running on top of either TensorFlow or Theano). Our aim is to teach the fundamentals of deep learning with Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) based on modern techniques using the Keras API and the Tensorflow backend. By the end participants will know how to build deep learning models, how to train them, what to avoid during training, what to check during training and how to perform model inference, especially for image based problems. We hope participants will then go out and apply these methods to their own problems and use cases.

The core curriculum is planned from Tuesday (August 22) to Thursday night (August 24) to take place on the MPI CBG campus, Dresden, Germany. There is the latent plan to have voluntary session before (introduction to python) and a hackday after the workshop (to work on the challenges participants have).

The registration is open until May 31, 2017. If you are interested, please consult the workshop page and register.
