Deep learning drives the so-called third wave of artificial intelligence (AI) and has dominating many automate tasks. However, what is deep learning? Why is it called “deep” learning? This webinar will present a general introduction to deep learning models, i.e., from artificial neural networks (ANN) to deep neural networks (DNN). Three major types of deep learning models will be covered, including convolution neural networks (CNN) mainly used in computer vision, recurrent neural networks (RNN) mainly targeting at time-series problems, and the latest Transformer that can be used in both computer vision and time-series analysis. Their extensions, e.g., different CNN architectures, RNN extensions (GRU, LSTM), Transformer based (BERT for language modelling and DETR, ViT for computer vision) and their typical applications will also be introduced. Finally, a general pipeline of applying deep learning in practical problems will be presented.
Target group for this event:
This course is appropriate for general audience, both developers and data scientists with basic knowledge about deep learning.
