Deep learning is currently one of the hottest areas in data science. Increasingly, businesses are applying it to gain competitive advantage. According to Gartner, eighty percent of data scientists will have deep learning in their toolkits by 2018. There is lot of demand for it, but not enough practitioners. In this webcast, we will set the foundation for what deep learning is, then walk through what it takes to train and deploy a production-quality neural network.

In this webcast you will learn:

  • Common use cases for deep learning in business
  • What neural networks are and, more important, how they are trained and deployed in practice
  • How data scientists can design an optimal neural network when a single training run can take two weeks
  • Some popular deep learning frameworks like TensorFlow, Caffe, PyTorch, Keras
  • How GPUs are used in training deep learning models
  • Free resources to get you started on your deep learning journey
