Join Devhub Toronto for their weekly series of Lunch&&Learns-- casual one-hour seminars with varying topics targeted at developers. Why not use your lunch break to learn something new?

Since the arrival of AlexNet in 2012, convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have been the force behind many of deep learning's recent breakthroughs. In this workshop, discover how to make the magic happen on your own! Using Keras (a high-level API for Tensorflow), you will learn how to train a CNN to recognize images with a lesson adapted from the ( course 'Deep Learning For Coders.' The lesson will be conducted using GPUs on top of Google's Colaboratory platform.

Participants should bring laptops and have a Google Drive account they can use during the workshop. Intermediate programming experience in Python is also recommended.
