Monday, March 5 & Tuesday, March 6, 9:00am - 5:00pm
Average rating: *****
(5.00, 1 rating)

Participants should plan to attend both days of this 2-day training course. Platinum and Training passes do not include access to tutorials on Tuesday.

PyTorch is a recent deep learning framework from Facebook that is gaining massive momentum in the deep learning community. Its fundamentally flexible design makes building and debugging models straightforward, simple, and fun. Delip Rao and Brian McMahan walk you through PyTorch's capabilities and demonstrate how to use PyTorch to build deep learning models and apply them to real-world problems.

What you'll learn, and how you can apply it

  • Understand the basics of machine learning, including deep learning
  • Master PyTorch and learn how to use it to build and save machine learning models
  • Learn best practices for machine learning development and deployment and how to build models for solving computer vision and natural language processing problems

PyTorch is a recent deep learning framework from Facebook that is gaining massive momentum in the deep learning community. Its fundamentally flexible design makes building and debugging models straightforward, simple, and fun. Delip Rao and Brian McMahan walk you through PyTorch’s capabilities and demonstrate how to use PyTorch to build deep learning models and apply them to real-world problems. Join in to learn how to input a range of data and variables into your models—from text to images and beyond—and rapidly prototype and construct solutions for a range of common machine learning tasks.

About your instructors

Delip Rao is the vice president of research at the AI Foundation, where he leads speech, language, and vision research efforts for generating and detecting artificial content. Previously, he founded AI research consulting company Joostware and the Fake News Challenge, an initiative to bring AI researchers across the world to work on fact-checking related problems. Delip is the author of a recent book on deep learning and natural language processing. His attitude to production NLP research is shaped by the time he spent at Joostware working for enterprise clients, at Google, as the first machine learning researcher on the Twitter antispam team, and as an early researcher at Amazon Alexa.

Brian McMahan is a data scientist at Wells Fargo working on projects that apply Natural Language Processing (NLP) to solve real world needs. Recently, he published a book with Delip Rao on PyTorch and NLP Previously, he was a research engineer at Joostware, a San Francisco-based company specializing in consulting and building intellectual property in NLP and Deep Learning. Brian is wrapping up his PhD in computer science from Rutgers University, where his research focuses on Bayesian and deep learning models for grounding perceptual language in the visual domain. Brian has also conducted research in reinforcement learning and various aspects of dialogue systems.
