Tensorflow and Deep Learning without a PhD - Session 1: CNN
Please register for the event on Eventbrite here ( RSVP is closed on this meetup page to avoid confusion. Come join a TensorFlow and Deep Learning crash course designed for developers and deep learning beginners! In this first session of TensorFlow and Deep Learning without a PhD, Martin Gorner from Google will teach us dense and convolutional neural networks. In the first talk, you will learn the basic ingredients of dense and convolutional neural networks, how to train and optimize them and how to create a neural network using low-level TensorFlow. In the second talk, Martin will go over modern advances in convolutional network architectures for classification and detection models. You will learn the architectures of these networks: Inception V3, SqueezeNet and YOLO (for object detection). In contrast to the first talk, you will see how to create a neural network using high-level TensorFlow. From the 3 hour hands-on codelab in the afternoon, you will learn how to build and train a neural network that recognize handwritten digits, using TensorFlow. if you are attending the codelab, please make sure to complete the installations of Python, TensorFlow and Matplotlib following the instructions here ( You will also need to bring your own computer for the codelab. Event schedule: 9:30 Registration and breakfast 10:00 Talk by Martin Gorner - Tensorflow and Deep Learning without a PhD 11:00 Talk by Martin Gorner - Tensorflow, Deep Learning and Modern Convnets without a PhD 12:00 Lunch 13:00 Codelab - Tensorflow and deep learning without a PhD 16:00 Wrap up *** Note: You may choose to attend either the morning talks or the afternoon codelab, or both. Space is more limited for the afternoon codelab.

What we're about

Public Group

The Google Developer Group ( Seattle chapter meets on the 3rd Monday of each month. We are an inclusive and rapidly growing community. Please follow our Code of Conduct and be excellent to each other - (

Our members are using or would like to learn more about developing applications using Google technology, including:

Google Cloud Platform

Machine Learning


App Engine



Google Plus

Go and Dart programming languages

Ideas for a talk? In general, we're looking for a technical talk with implementation details about Google or related developer technologies from speakers comfortable handling engineering Q&A. Also we've hosted industry experts such as Eric Ries and Steve Souders, and we love to feature out of town visitors. Shoot us your ideas.
