Talks on Wurreka:

In this workshop we'll introduce Convolutional Neural Networks and give examples of how they are used in real life from published and our own projects. Workshop will include introduction of Jupyter notebooks and Google Colab, a tool for researchers to try and learn neural networks with free GPU andTPU time, and go through easy to follow tutorials to make users familiar with CNNs and let them apply these tools to solve problems from simple image recognition to complex signal analysis.

Participants will need to bring their own laptops that have ideally Google Chrome installed, with a Google account, and access to the Internet.
