Getting started with PyTorch
Who is this presentation for?Data scientists and application developers
Since it’s arrival in January 2017, PyTorch has captured the minds of Machine Learning researchers and developers. Now two years later, PyTorch has matured into production-ready Machine Learning framework with ever-growing examples, use cases and applications supported by a robust community. Similarly, Machine Learning and it’s subdiscipline Deep Learning has gained immense popularity closely linked to the availability of libraries such as PyTorch and promising results across domains such as Computer Vision and Natural Language Understanding.
In this tutorial, you will learn PyTorch via several examples. As we learn PyTorch, we will implement use cases such as image classification, text classification, and regression modeling. We will do hands-on exploration with transfer learning, working with training and test datasets and learn about taking PyTorch models to production.
