The NVIDIA Institute (DLI) and XENON invite you to attend the Fundamentals of Deep Learning – Multiple Data Types hands-on workshop on:
Thursday April 11th, 2019
9:00am – 5:00pm
Monash University – Seminar 1,
Level 7, 30 Collins St Melbourne VIC 3000
This workshop has already been run. There are new options for remote learning, online workshops, customised workshops for organisations and enterprises. Other training is also available on RAPIDS and Machine Vision. Review the offerings in the Training section of our website, and contact us to register your interest.
About This Workshop
This workshop explores how convolution and recurrent neural networks can be combined to generate effective descriptions of content within images and video clips.
Learn how to train a network using TensorFlow and the Microsoft Common Objects in Context (COCO) dataset to generate captions from images and video by:
- Implementing Deep Learning workflows like image segmentation and text generation
- Comparing and contrasting data types, workflows, and frameworks
- Combining computer vision and natural language processing
Upon completion, you’ll be able to solve problems that require multiple types of data inputs. You will receive a Fundamentals certificate from Institute!
Attendees MUST bring their own laptops.

DETAILED COURSE OUTLINE
|Introduction||Introduction to , situations in which it is useful, key terminology, industry trends, and challenges.|
|Image Segmentation with TensorFlow||Hands-on exercise: Segment MRI images to measure parts of the heart using tools such as TensorBoard and the TensorFlow Python API.|
|Word Generation with TensorFlow||Hands-on exercise: a Recurrent Neural Network to understand both images and text, and to predict the next word of a sentence using the MSCOCO (Microsoft Common Objects in Context) dataset.|
|Image and Video Captioning||Hands-on exercise: Train a model that generates a description of an image from raw pixel data by combining outputs of multiple networks (CNNs and RNNs) through concatenation and/or averaging.|
|Summary||Review of concepts and practical takeaways.|
Workshop Setup Instructions:
- Create an NVIDIA Developer account at http://courses.nvidia.com/join.
- Make sure that WebSockets works for you:
- Test your laptop at http://websocketstest.com
- Under ENVIRONMENT, confirm that “WebSockets” is checked yes.
- Under WEBSOCKETS (PORT 80), confirm that “Data Receive,” “Send,” and “Echo Test” are checked yes.
- If there are issues with WebSockets, try updating your browser. We recommend Chrome, Firefox, or Safari for an optimal performance.
- Once onsite, visit http://courses.nvidia.com/dli-event and enter the event code provided by the instructor.
