The course is now fully booked! If you have registered to the course and you are not able to attend, please CANCEL your registration in advance by sending an email to patc at csc.fi We have processed a LIMITED WAITING LIST. Please send your request to patc at csc.fi, and we will keep those on the waiting list informed of whether participation will be possible. Please note that registration/wait list is at a first come, first served basis. Welcome to the course!
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 new Puhti-AI partition on the second day.
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.
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.
