AI Deep Dive

In our two-day workshop, you will acquire basic knowledge about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning and learn how to use Deep Learning to solve numerous problems, such as the churn prediction use case and image classification tasks.

We will begin by presenting an intuitive introduction to how neural networks function, then provide an overview of common architectures that can be used to solve a variety of problems. You will also learn how to organise your deep learning projects and how to use modern tools such as PyTorch, TensorBoard and PyTorch Lightning to your benefit. After completing this workshop, you will be able to use Deep Learning independently to solve problems.
