“Mainstream access to deep learning technology will greatly impact most industries over the next three to five years.”
So what exactly is deep learning? How does it work? And most importantly, why should you even care?
Deep learning is used in the research community and in industry to help solve many big data problems such as computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing. Practical examples include:
- Vehicle, pedestrian and landmark identification for driver assistance
- Image recognition
- Speech recognition and translation
- Natural language processing
- Life sciences

12:00pm – END: Enquiries
You may bring your laptop along to follow on some exercises, but not required.
- No background in deep learning is required for this training
- Basic python understanding can be useful for some exercises
- The mathematical and theoretical aspects of deep learning will NOT be covered by this training – and they’re not a requirement to complete the labs, reading the Wikipedia page of Deep Learning would be a good start if you’re interested.
