Building neural networks with Linux
This course is perfect for those wanting to make practical use of the world of possibilities opened by modern Artificial Intelligence evolutions.
The course starts by looking at the various Neural Network implementations and provides the minimal theoretical background needed to understand it. We look at implementation choices. We learn to use the most common implementations with Python and Keras. We use the Neural Compute stick with build in hardware accelerated Tensorflow network to implement in combination with a Raspberry Pi and a camera practical object recognition. We explore pre-build neural networks and learn how to build them. And apply our knowledge in a Data Science fashion too. Finally we look at limitations, debugging and topics of interest.
During this course all participants will have the opportunity to build and experiment with a multifunctional small-footprint embedded target with powerfull hardware optimised neural network capabilities. After the course, the participants can take the board with them to continue experimenting.
No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please let us know.
Everybody who is responsible for designing and building Artificial Intelligence Systems.
IT Background and general Linux skills and command line experience (see Linux/UNIX fundamentals). Python knowledge is not required, but can be helpful during the course (see Python fundamentals). Programming experience is however esential to better understand the concepts.
