What: Keeping Up With the Deep Learning Curve by Julia Lintern, Metis Sr. Data Scientist
Where: Live Online Event
When: Dec. 7th, 6:30-7:30 pm ET
How: (CLOSED) Complete your application by Nov. 30th and receive an exclusive invite.
Deep learning. If you're interested in data science, you've probably heard of it – some of the most exciting research going on right now is in this area. But how do you gain a basic understanding of what's going on within all of those deep learning layers? And how do you get started with hands-on practice?
To begin answering these questions, anyone who completes their application to our data science bootcamp by November 30th will receive an exclusive invitation to hear Metis Sr. Data Scientist Julia Lintern present Keeping Up With the Deep Learning Curve, a talk to help the beginner-level data scientist navigate the deep learning landscape.
This exclusive, online event will be held on December 7th from 6:30 - 7:30 pm ET, complete with a Q&A session with Julia to follow. [Invitations will go out to all applicants who qualify via email on December 1st. Login details will be included then.] Julia will explain both the design theory and the code of some of today's most widely used deep learning algorithms, including convolutional neural nets and recurrent neural nets. Additionally, she'll discuss one of her own recent deep learning explorations that she completed during her "passion quarter" at Metis – an implementation of FashionNet involving a spin-off of Style Transfer. Complete your bootcamp application by 11/30 to receive your special invitation.

Attendees are encouraged to ask Julia questions related to her talk but are also welcome to ask her questions about the bootcamp experience itself. She's taught the bootcamp 5 times in New York City and is one of our most experienced instructors.
Have questions about our data science bootcamp? We hosted a live Ask Me Anything session on our Community Slack channel feat. Metis Career Advisor Marybeth Redmond and Sr. Admissions Manager Josh Shaman. They answered a variety of questions about the bootcamp, ranging from the application process, job search, career trajectories, curriculum, expectations, and much more. Read here for some highlights!
Attending ODSC East & Accelerate AI in Boston April 30th - May 1st? If so, be sure to check out these trainings and talks from our team members. They'll cover probabilistic programming, how to build generative adversarial networks, and how to build an effective data science project portfolio for your business.
On Thursday, September 26th, you're invited to join us for a live (and free!) webinar on Data-Driven Approaches to Forecasting with Metis Sr. Data Scientist Javed Ahmed, designed for business leaders, data science managers, and decision-makers seeking to understand how data-driven approaches can improve forecasting and planning.
