Data Workshop #7 with Vladimir

Date:13th May 2017, from 11 am till 16
Place: GE Healthcare (AVIA building, second floor)
ul. Życzkowskiego 20
City: Kraków

Motivation:
The Neural Network (especially Deep Learning) is very wide topic. After the Artificial Intelligence winter period, French neuronetologist, Yann Lecun figured out LeNet in 1998 - the network that allowed recognizing handwriting digits. But still CNN was known only to very narrow group of specialists. It has changed in 2012, when Alex Krizhevsky adopted the more advanced approach and built AlexNet… which won ImageNet competition. After 2012 the world changed and people saw the potential of CNN :). CNN first of all is about computer vision, starting from face detection or object detection and ending on self-driving cars (which is very different type of task to predict next action). CNN can also be use in other areas for example in NLP (but it's another story).

What will you learn?

  • Introduction to Convolution Neural Network (LeNet 5)
  • Apply LeNet5 on MNIST (~96.8% accuracy)
  • More advanced CNN & MNIST (~99.2% accuracy)
  • Apply CNN on CIFAIR10
  • Introduction to VGG{16,19}, ResNet50, Inception V3
