Hot topic

Deep learning has become a really hot topic for different areas of research in order to extract information and correlations between huge amounts of data that are otherwise very difficult or even effectively impossible to process in a purely analytic way.

Programme

This workshop will begin with a morning session that will be presenting an overview of machine learning techniques, and later on introducing the basics concepts needed to understand artificial neural networks. The afternoon session will be eminently practical and applied to life sciences. You may be able to learn the basic use of tools for image processing and tune the results of your neural network to achieve your goals. The hands-on exercises will be performed using the Python programming language in a Jupyter notebook.

For who?

The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers, particularly from life sciences, who would like to know how the different deep learning techniques can be applied to their everyday work.

Requirements 

Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.).
