Deep Learning Fundamentals Workshop – 21 October 2017

Thanks for attending the workshop! There was a lot of demand for the event but we were only able to accommodate around 40 participants (+1 cat), so we will be holding similar events in the near feature. Next event will be in Bilkent University on 19th November 2017, we are planning to have another one at the Informatics Institute shortly after.
