The school will be held in person
Deep Learning (DL) 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 DL, starting from its foundations and discussing the various types of deep architectures and tools currently available. The theoretical classes will be coupled with hands-on activities in lab (in Python using Keras), 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.
Although the DL course can be taken independently, this year it will be held in synergy with the “Computer Vision Crash Course” (CVCC). Computer Vision is indeed one of the most classical and effective applications of DL in the real world. Contributions from the CVCC course will constitute a complementary deepening on basic principles of computer vision and visual perception in artificial agents, but also providing a guided tour through the use of deep learning for computer vision problems.
The program is integrated with that of CVCC and the contents of the two courses are complementary. Although this is not mandatory, students are encouraged to take both courses.
