Participants should plan to attend both days of this 2-day training course. To attend training courses, you must register for a Platinum or Training pass; does not include access to tutorials on Tuesday.

The TensorFlow library provides for the use of computational graphs, with automatic parallelization across resources. This architecture is ideal for implementing neural networks. Robert Schroll offers an overview of TensorFlow's capabilities in Python, demonstrating how to build machine learning algorithms piece by piece and how to use TensorFlow's Keras API with several hands-on applications.

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

  • Understand machine learning, neural networks, deep learning, and artificial intelligence basic concepts
  • Learn what TensorFlow is and what applications it's good for
  • Create deep learning models for classification and regression using TensorFlow
  • Evaluate the benefits and disadvantages of using TensorFlow over other machine learning software

This training is for you because...

  • You're a software engineer or programmer who wants to develop a basic understanding of machine learning.
  • You have experience modeling or have a background in data science, and you want to learn TensorFlow.

Prerequisites:

  • A working knowledge of Python
  • Familiarity with matrices, modeling, and statistics
  • No experience with TensorFlow required

Hardware and/or installation requirements:

  • A WiFi-enabled machine (You'll be provisioned a cloud instance with TensorFlow.)

Is there a detailed info with information about what version of Tensorflow, Keras, Cloud profisioned OS, and which version of python so we can know what to expect and be prepared?
