End to End Deep Learning for Computer Vision

As applied engineering just knows building models are not sufficient for production grade software, these roles focus on core principles, best practices, design patterns, and expertise with a framework and toolset, such as deploy models, and scale for your fast growing applications/services.
This two day immersive instructor-led training will teach everything you need to know to become a software engineer in computer vision and deep learning! You will learn:
  • Recognize problems can be solved with deep learning and Select right technique for problems
  • Select the right technique for the problems.
  • Master deep learning algorithms, models and computer vision tech
  • Master the most popular tools like numpy, Keras, Tensorflow, and openCV
  • Master google cloud machine learning pipelines
  • This training is packed with practical exercises and code labs. not only will you learn theory, but also get hands-on practice building your own models, tuning models, and serving models

    • June 15th Sat 9am-4:30pm PT
    • June 16th Sun 9am-4:30pm PT

    • Practical walkthroughs that present solutions to actual, real-world image classification problems and challenges
    • Hands-on tutorials (with lots of code) that not only show you the algorithms behind deep learning for computer vision but their implementations as well
    • A no-nonsense teaching style that is guaranteed to cut through all the cruft and help you master deep learning for image understanding and visual recognition
    • End to end machine learning pipeline from building models to deploy and serve models
    • light breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks
