Marquette’s Statistical Consulting and Training Center will host “The Journey from machine Learning to Deep Learning,” workshop on Friday, April 13, from 7:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Emory Clark Hall 111.
Deep learning is taking the world by storm as “the” algorithmic approach behind many of key advancements in applied machine intelligence. The voice recognition behind Alexa, Google Voice, and Siri all depend heavily on deep learning as do many of the personalization features behind the smart devices and services used by consumers in their day to day lives.
This workshop is highly technical, first presenting machine learning in general, then deep learning specifically, then exploring several deep learning approaches with an exploration of code and packages using both Python and R-Studio. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops; while this will not be a hands-on session specifically, all the details about the environment and appropriate packages will be shared with attendees prior to the workshop.
With many thanks to Direct Supply, Inc. and Marshfield Clinical Research Institute, this workshop is free and open to the public. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for registered attendees.
