Course Overview

The abundance of data and affordable cloud scale has led to an explosion of interest in Deep Learning. Google has released an excellent library called Tensorflow to open-source, allowing state-of-the-art machine learning done at scale, complete with GPU-based acceleration. Working with Tensorflow is a hands-on course that explores algorithms, machine learning, and data mining concepts, and how TensorFlow implements them, working in a hands-on manner. This “skills-centric” course is about 50% hands-on lab and 50% lecture, integrating practical hands-on labs designed to reinforce fundamental skills, concepts and best practices introduced throughout the course.

Learning Objectives
