This three-day Deep Learning for Computer Vision online training aims at professionals from all domains, who would like to learn about the fundamentals of Deep Learning and Computer Vision.

Participants learn all about the basic concepts of neural networks, which have become widely applicable since the increase in available compute power. This includes activation functions, loss functions and optimizers. However, we will not just cover fully connected dense layers, but also work with convolutional layers, pooling layers, and dropout layers amongst others.

Since it is not necessary to train a model all by oneself, we will be looking into transfer learning, where we use pre-trained models and adapt them to our problem. Other than that, we will also talk about segmentation and object tracking and about what else can be done in deep learning (DL), apart from computer vision.

On the last day of this online training, we will introduce VSC-5, Austria’s fastest supercomputer, with all its capabilities. Should participants also want to train their models on VSC-5, they have to provide us with a valid mobile phone number to get past the 2-factor authentication.
