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 TensorFlow will be used in the exercise sessions. CSC's Notebooks environment will be used on the first day of the course, and the Taito-GPU cluster on the second day.
After the course the participants should have the skills needed to begin applying deep learning for different tasks and utilizing the available GPU capacity at CSC for training and deploying their own neural networks.
The participants are assumed to have working knowledge of Python and suitable background in data analysis, machine learning, or a related field. Basics of linear algebra and calculus are sufficient. Previous experience in deep learning is not required, but the fundamentals of machine learning are not covered on this course. Basic knowledge of a Linux/Unix environment will be assumed.
