Introduction to TensorFlow and Machine Learning

Register now for our upcoming Introduction to TensorFlow and Machine Learning workshop being held on Friday 12 June delivered online via Zoom from 9:00pm-2:30pm AEST. The workshop will be led by instructors from the Monash eResearch centre and the Data Science and AI Platform.

Introduction to TensorFlow and Machine Learning
This workshop is an introduction to how deep learning works and how you could create a neural network using TensorFlow v2. We start by learning the basics of deep learning including what a neural network is, how information passes through the network, and how the network learns from data through the automated process of gradient descent. You would build, train and evaluate your very own network using a cloud GPU (Google Colab). We then proceed to look at image data and how we could train a convolution neural network to classify images. You will extend your knowledge from the first part to design, train and evaluate this convolutional neural network.

Difficulty level: Foundational.

What you’ll need: A computer with speakers and a microphone (note: webcams and dual monitors are recommended but not required). A web browser and Zoom are the only required software. A Zoom link and instructions will be sent to registrants 2 days prior to the workshop.
