About this event

We are back again and this time with a workshop!

** We highly recommend people to get a free ticket at Eventbrite: https://tensorflowworkshop.eventbrite.com so that, in case there are any changes in the room location, we can update you more conveniently. Having said that, you can RSVP on meetup if you would like to do so.**

Machine learning, deep learning, neural networks, modeling, and learning are the buzz words in today's time. Be it at the scale of Boston Robotics or simple image recognition on our smartphones, we have heard of them time and again. Today, this work is being pushed forward by 'Tensorflow': end-to-end open source platform for machine learning (https://www.tensorflow.org/), the work which came out of 'Google Brain'. It is widely used in research labs by developers and those Ph.D. scholars across the world.

How much this sounds fascinating, wouldn't it be great if you get to do a 'hands-on' workshop on the TensorFlow, led by instructors who are creating the materials on the same?

Google Developers Burnaby in collaboration with IEEE SFU, brings to you a 3-hour 'hands-on' workshop on TensorFlow and Deep Learning. All beginners are welcome, even if you have never worked with TensorFlow at all. As the title suggests, get to know TensorFlow without even doing a Ph.D.

✦Title: 'TensorFlow without a Ph.D.': A workshop on TensorFlow and Deep Learning instructed by Martin Gorner, Google

✦Venue: Applied Science Building, ASB-9705, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, Canada
Note: If you are traveling to Burnaby, enter from the cornerstone area (main bus loop), walk down the stairs near the fountains and turn right. Look for Applied Science Building or a spiral staircase. We are the first room on the left.

✦Agenda:
• 10:00 - 10:30- Meet and greet

• 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM - Workshop on TensorFlow & Deep Learning
Theory + coding- neural network, gradient descent, dropout, overfitting, CNN, etc. Please note, you have to bring your laptops. We will be using Google Colab (https://colab.research.google.com/ ) for our workshop which is an online IDE for coding, hence you need not install anything on your laptop.

• 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM- Q & A session

• 2:00 PM: Event ends

We hope that you use this opportunity to get the first-hand experience or even better, dive deep into the knowledge of TensorFlow. Also, if you get time, talk to us (the organizers). We work with TensorFlow too and would be happy to talk about our work :)
