Machine Learning

Course 1 — Deep learning with fastai

Tuesday, July 6

9 am–5 pm Pacific Time

This course format will be a combination of several interactive Zoom sessions and pre-recorded reading and video materials in-between the Zoom sessions. Course materials will be shared shortly before the start of the course.

This course, suitable for people with no knowledge of machine learning, will walk you through the core concepts of neural networks and give you the tools necessary to build your own models to solve problems. We will use fastai—a deep learning library building on top of PyTorch—as it gives the option of high-level fast implementation without compromising with the lower level flexibility of PyTorch.

Course Details:

Some courses will require additional or more advanced level knowledge or programming skills. Check the course descriptions for more details.

All participants are encouraged (but not required) to obtain a Compute Canada account. We will be providing guest accounts if needed, but if you would like to register for a free Compute Canada account, click here.
