About this event

Welcome to our newest workshop in the area of Data Science by the expert scientist Dr. Haidar AlMohri (Data Scientist at Siemens Kuwait)

Deep Learning is one of the most highly sought after skills in tech. It is also a new "superpower" that will let you build AI systems that just weren't possible a few years ago. The structure of deep learning model is highly similar to a human brain with large number of neurons and nodes like neurons in human brain thus resulting in artificial neural network. In this workshop, we will cover the fundamentals of neural networks and will learn how deep networks are constructed. You will gain hands-on experience on using deep learning with Keras, which is a cutting-edge library for deep learning in Python.
