Deep Learning - study circle
Organizers: Bo Bernhardsson, Kalle Åström, Magnus Fontes
Course TAs: Fredrik Bagge Carlsson, Martin Karlsson
This is a PhD course organized in the form of a reading group where the work is carried out mainly by the participants.
We will use the book Deep Learning by Bengio et al.
To this we will also look at
- Some DL platform(s), Tensorflow (or alternatives)
- Data sets, especially some interesting from biology provided by Magnus Fontes
- Video Lectures
- DL competitions, see kaggle
- Cloud/GPU implementations
Collection of Deep Learning material
Prerequisities: You are supposed to know the material in Ch 1-5 in Bengio beforehand. If you are completly new to machine learning you might want to first follow the ML course given at the math department
Examination: For credits (7.5 ECTS) you should be resposible for one session, complete at least half of the homeworks, and do a smaller deep learning project of your choice.
We will upload our homeworks on this git repository.
- Meeting 1, Introduction, 15/9: Thursday Sep 15 at 13.15 in M:2112B (control dept seminar room). Slides from the meeting: BoB, Fredrik BaggeCarlsson, MagnusFontes, KalleÅström. Start reading Goodfellow part 2, pp 167-487. Install Synapse and Slack when you get invitiations. Also install a platform of your choice (e.g. Tensorflow) and run a tutorial of your choice.

You should upload your homework on this git repository and fill in this google doc (you need 6 finished home works. They can overlap, and some cooperation is allowed, but state who did what). Send also a presentation about your mini project
