Overview

This workshop uses a series of hands-on exercises to teach deep learning techniques for a range of problems involving multiple data types. You will work with widely-used deep learning tools, frameworks, and workflows to perform neural network training on a fully-configured, GPU-accelerated workstation in the cloud. After a quick introduction to deep learning, you will advance to building deep learning applications for image segmentation, sentence generation, and image and video captioning — while simultaneously learning relevant computer vision, neural network, and natural language processing concepts.

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to assess a broad spectrum of problems where deep learning can be applied.

  • Create network inputs from text data
  • Test with new data
  • Iterate to improve performance

Hands-on exercise: Train a recurrent neural network to understand both images and text, and to predict the next word of a sentence using the Microsoft Common Objects in Context (MSCOCO) dataset.

Image and Video Captioning

  • Combine computer vision and natural language processing to describe scenes
  • Learn to harness the functionality of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and RNNs

Hands-on exercise: Train a model that generates a description of an image from raw pixel data by combining outputs of multiple networks (CNNs and RNNs) through concatenation and/or averaging.

Summary
