Deep Learning Workshops by Google and Amazon
November 13, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
MIDAS invites you to apply to attend deep learning workshops on November 13. Application deadline: October 25. The workshops are free; however, if there are more applicants than the number of spots allows, students who have submitted abstracts to the MIDAS annual symposium and who signed up to volunteer at the symposium will be given priority. Each workshop is described below.
Google Deep Learning Workshop
8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Weiser Hall 10th floor
This workshop will offer practical instruction in deep learning (DL) through demos and hands-on labs. You will learn about machine learning (ML) and how to build a data strategy around it, along with feature engineering techniques. You will create ML/DL models in the cloud using Python notebooks. TensorFlow will be introduced, and you will learn how to write low-level TensorFlow programs. The workshop will also include a discussion of Google’s use of ML in practice.
Amazon Deep Learning Workshop (Only for University of Michigan faculty, staff and students)
Session 1: 8:00 a.m. – noon.
Session 2: 1 pm to 5 pm.
Rackham Building 4th floor East Conference Room
This workshop will offer practical instruction in deep learning (DL) through demos and hands-on labs. You will explore the current trends powering artificial intelligence (AI)/DL adoption and algorithmic learning in neural networks, dive into how DL is applied in modern business practices, and leverage building blocks from the Amazon machine learning (ML) family of AI services from powerful new GPU instances, convenient Amazon SageMaker built-in algorithms, to ready-to-use managed AI services. The workshop will include a discussion of Amazon’s use of ML in practice.
