Deep Learning through Examples

In this talk, we take Deep Learning to task with real world data puzzles to solve.

Deep Learning has certainly crossed the basic level



- MNIST dataset

- eBay classification dataset

- Kaggle dataset


AUC of Test vs. Train

    This meetup was held at Vendavo office in Mountain View. To my (very) limited knowledge, I went in with oodles of curiosity of Deep Learning using R. The talk lasted an hour and half, Dr Candel gave a quick introduction of H2O Distributed Deep Learning.

    I admit it was only till halfway through did I start to understand the subject. In the 2nd half of the talk, Dr Candel presented a few user cases to demonstrate the advantage of H2O, such as MNIST handwritten digits, eBay text classification, weather prediction, etc. to illustrate nerual network training, prediction models, performance of non-regularized and regularied models, memory usage etc. OxData created a nice tool for marchine learning using the powerful statistcal language R.

    The slides were prepared well with real world examples, Dr Candel’s presentation was fluent. The microphone was a bit too weak. Thanks to Vendavo for hosting the event.

    Great talk Arno. Where can I get access to the slides? I'm interested to read up on all relevant research papers of Arno on deep learning. Please post the links if possible.

    Excited ! Are we building up on Dr. Candel's presentation. May be more hands on ? Beat Kaggle competitions ?

    0xdata is a great partner of SF Scala, and this meetup is a great way to learn about Deep Learning in practice.

    If you want to follow up with a deep dive, SF Scala is running a two-day professional training course on Distributed Deep Learning with Scala and Akka:
