Workshop: Deep Learning Using Keras

Nov 16, 2019


Hotel Royal Orchid, Bengaluru

Do you want to jump into the Deep Learning? Are you still stuck on grasping how backpropagation works? Then this workshop is for you! The goal of this workshop is to get you up to speed with the advancements in Deep Learning with a practical perspective.   Along with this, you will also get to know about keras, a tool which has been getting heavy attention from the community as it provide simple higher level interface to build Deep Learning models. In this workshop, our objective is to make you comfortable to build image and text classification deep learning models using keras. And, you will also learn the building blocks of deep learning: MLP (Multi Layer Perceptron), CNN(Convolutional Neural Network) and RNN (Recurrent Neural Network).

Structure of the workshop
