HYBRID: Practical Deep Learning

24.11.2022 09:00 +02:00 EET - 25.11.2022 16:00 +02:00 EET

CSC – IT Center for Science

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. TensorFlow 2, Keras, and PyTorch  will be used in the exercise sessions. CSC's Notebooks environment will be used on the first day of the course, and the GPU-accelerated LUMI or Puhti supercomputers on the second day.

Learning outcome

After the course the participants should have the skills and knowledge needed to begin applying deep learning for different tasks and utilizing the GPU resources available at CSC for training and deploying their own neural networks.

Prerequisites and content level

The participants are assumed to have working knowledge of Python and suitable background in data analysis, machine learning, or a related field. 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.
