  • You’ve probably heard that Deep Learning is making news across the world as one of the most promising techniques in machine learning, especially for analyzing image data. With every industry dedicating resources to unlock the deep learning potential, to be competitive, you will want to use these models in tasks such as image tagging, object recognition, speech recognition, and text analysis. In this training session you will build deep learning models using neural networks, explore what they are, what they do, and how. To remove the barrier introduced by designing, training, and tuning networks, and to be able to achieve high performance with less labeled data, you will also build deep learning classifiers tailored to your specific task using pre-trained models, which we call deep features. Also, you’ll develop a clear understanding of the motivation for deep learning, and design intelligent systems that learn from complex and/or large-scale datasets.
Key Skills:
  • Combine different types of layers and activation functions to obtain better performance
  • Describe how these models can be applied in computer vision, text analytics and speech recognition
  • Describe how a neural network model is represented and how it encodes non-linear features
  • Use pretrained models, such as deep features, for new classification tasks You will learn how to Prototype ideas and then productionize
  • Explore a dataset of products, reviews and images
  • This is an advanced level session and it assumes that you have good familiarity with Machine learning.
