Thank you to Work Market for sponsoring!

Join us for pizza, beer and deep learning algorithms! During this talk, Jon Krohn will talk about deep learning fundamentals with its applications.

About Talk:

Deep Learning algorithms have become influential across a broad range of the statistical domain, including classification, prediction, and feature generation. Recently popularized by a standout performance in the 2012 iteration of the ImageNet visual recognition competition, Deep Neural Networks have since facilitated countless everyday applications, including Tesla's Autopilot, Siri's voice recognition, and Google Inbox's suggested replies. Via analogy to biological neurons and human vision, this talk is an introduction to artificial neural networks that incorporates interactive demos and example code from popular open-source Deep Learning libraries.
