1st workshop:

Networks are like onions: Practical Deep Learning with TensorFlow

Deep learning is the area that wins over the field of Artificial Intelligence. By using libraries like TensorFlow, it is now available to the wider audience.In this tutorial, Barbara will walk the audience through the process of creating several types of neural networks. The session will start with explaining key concepts of deep learning and introducing datasets the computation will be performed on. Along the way, attendees will have the practical opportunity to use TensorFlow to build deep networks, train them and evaluate the results. After the session, participants will become familiar with how to use TensorFlow when shaping the architecture of neural networks. By the hands-on form of the tutorial, the audience will have the chance to gain some firsthand experience of how to apply deep learning to computer vision and natural language processing tasks.

2nd talk:

Predicting congestion on London's roads with TensorFlow

Predicting congestion is an important part of any traffic management system. With accurate forecasting traffic can be effectively regulated, ensuring safe and fast journeys on the roads. Based on data from Transport for London (TfL) we trained a neural network in TensorFlow that predicts congestion in south-west London. With this use case as example we will demonstrate how TensorFlow can be used to build predictive models for time series data.
