Topic: Intro to Deep Learning with Theano and OpenDeep

Speaker: Markus Beissinger




Deep learning currently provides state-of-the-art performance in computer vision, natural language processing, and many other machine learning tasks. In this talk, we will learn when deep learning is useful (and when it isn't!), how to implement some simple neural networks using Theano, and how to build more powerful systems using the OpenDeep package.


Markus Beissinger is the founder of Vitruvian Science, a cloud-based AI company. He is also the lead developer on OpenDeep, a modular open-source deep learning framework based on Theano. You can find him on the web at
