Event description

Description

Machine Learning and deep learning technologies are at the core of the current revolution in artificial intelligence for multimedia data analysis. Ever wondered what all the fuss is about? Or what these technologies can do for you? Are you working in the field and wish to enhance your current knowledge in some specific techniques?

Insight@DCU will host a half-day and a 2 day workshop on Machine Learning on April 27th and 28th, which will help to answer your questions, whether a novice or knowledgeable in the field.

For those interested in learning more about machine learning, international experts in the field will offer their insights and examples of these technologies in common use over a half-day event. For those who want to learn more or are working in the field and wish to enhance their knowledge, the learnings will continue through Thursday afternoon and into Friday.

This course will cover the basic principles and applications of deep learning to computer vision problems, such as image classification, object detection or text captioning.
