Keeping Up With the Deep Learning Curve (Exclusive Applicant-Only Online Event)

By Emily Wilson • November 14, 2017

Event Details:

  • 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.

Top left: shows learning curve; top right: when the learning curve is turned counterclockwise, we see there is a magic staircase (aka a shortcut via Python libraries).

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.

Don’t forget to apply by November 30th to receive your invite!
