The NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) and Graduate School of Informatics, Middle East Technical University (METU) are excited to deliver a hands-on deep learning workshop at Graduate School of Informatics on 22nd September 2018 Saturday exclusively for verifiable academic students, staff, and researchers. In this full-day workshop, you’ll learn the basics of deep learning by training and deploying neural networks.

IMPORTANT: To reserve your seat, you MUST register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fundamentals-of-deep-learning-for-computer-vision-hands-on-workshop-tickets-50069629610 with a valid university email address (*.edu.tr).

 

In this full-day workshop, you’ll learn the basics of deep learning by training and deploying neural networks. You’ll learn how to:

  • Implement common deep learning workflows, such as image classification and object detection.
  • Experiment with data, training parameters, network structure, and other strategies to increase performance and capability.
  • Deploy your neural networks to start solving real-world problems.

Upon completion, you’ll be able to start solving problems on your own with deep learning.

Workshop Agenda:

22nd  September 2018 Saturday

10:00   Deep Learning Demystified and Applied Deep Learning (lecture)

10:30   Training Deep Neural Networks: 120 minutes (Hands-On)

13:30   Deploying Trained Neural Networks: 40 minutes (Hands-On)

14:10   Coffee Break

14:30   Measuring and Improving Performance: 120 minutes (Hands-On)

16:30   Closing Comments & Questions

You must bring your own laptop to this workshop.

This workshop is meant for developers, data scientists, and researchers with a basic understanding of deep learning concepts.

Deep Learning in Computer Vision – 13 April 2018

I’ll be giving a talk titled “Deep Learning in Computer Vision” as part of the Informatics Institute monthly Friday Seminars series.

Location: Conference Room (124), METU Informatics Institute

Time: 13 April 2018, 15:30-16:30

This seminar is open to public and those outside METU have to register from EventBrite page of the event: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/metu-informatics-institute-friday-seminars-deep-learning-in-computer-vision-tickets-44790433392 (Free Registration)

Deep Learning in Computer Vision

Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) have been shown to achieve human-level accuracy for many vision tasks. On the other hand, they require considerable amounts of computational power and data to train. In this talk, I will first talk about the deep learning based approaches and their differences to traditional approaches. I will then give an overview of the deep learning ecosystem (tools and systems) for training and inference. Then I will be focusing on their application to the computer vision problems with a number of examples including image classification, object detection, image segmentation as well as generative models. I will then conclude by discussing the challenges and problems in current deep learning based approaches.
