Deep Learning is a branch of Machine Learning that has recently achieved astonishing results in a number of different domains.
This course will provide a hands-on introduction to Deep Learning, starting from its foundations and discussing the various types of deep architectures and tools currently available.
The theoretical classes will be accompanied by work in lab, which will constitute an integral part of the course, giving the possibility of practicing deep learning with examples from real-world applications, with particular focus on visual data.
Besides well established approaches, the course will also highlight current trends, open problems and potential future lines of research.
A certificate of attendance (2 credits suggested according to the ECTS grading scale) will be sent to all participants.
An exam certificate (no grade, 6 credits suggested according to the ECTS grading scale) will be issued to those who will take and pass the exam
The course is linked to the Computer Vision Crash Course. The two courses are self-contained and can be taken independently, but students interested in both will be provided extra information to better relate the two subjects.
