Introduction to Deep Learning with Keras, Tensorflow and Scikit-Learn

April 29 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


This event is co-hosted by: CrowdFlower and Galvanize

About the Workshop:

Machine learning and especially deep learning is rapidly becoming prevalent in products we use every day. Scikit-learn is a fantastic toolkit to get started on making real world models in Python. It’s powerful and very easy to deploy. The best part of Scikit-learn for those who aren’t very strong in mathematics is that no math background is necessary.

Once we build some traditional models, we’ll move on to keras and tensorflow, excellent tools for doing deep learning.  We’ll build a few deep learning models to classify images and explore how they work.

Lukas Biewald and Nick Gaylord will jointly conduct this workshop. Lukas and Nick will cover the basic types of machine learning techniques, provide examples of real world applications and towards the end of the session, you will build some models together!


9 a.m. – 10 p.m.: Laptop setup

10 p.m. – 12 p.m.:  Machine Learning with Scikit Learn

12 p.m. – 1 p.m.: Q&A, Pizza, Networking

1p.m. – 4 p.m.: Deep Learning with Keras
