Event Details

Overview


Together with Red Dragon AI, SGInnovate is pleased to present the second module of the Deep Learning Developer Series. In this module, we go beyond the basic skills taught in module one such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs). This would expand your ability to build modern image networks, using a variety of architecture, for applications beyond simple classification. 

 

About the Deep Learning Developer Series:

 

The Deep Learning Developer Series is a hands-on series targeted at developers and data scientists who are looking to build Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications for real-world usage. It is an expanded curriculum that breaks away from the regular eight-week full-time course structure and allows for modular customisation according to your own pace and preference. In every module, you will have the opportunity to build your own Deep Learning models as part of your main project. You will also be challenged to use your new skills in an application that relates to your field of work or interest.

 

About this module:

 

Building on the lessons from the first module, we will be going beyond TensorFlow and Keras. PyTorch and TorchVision, which are often used for research in Computer Vision.

 

To learn about the current state-of-the-art technologies, we will review the history of ImageNet winning models and focus on Inception and Residual models. We will also look at some of the newer models such as NASNet and AmoebaNet, and explore how the field has gone beyond hand-engineered models.

 

One key skill that you will acquire, is how to use modern architectures such as feature extractors to create applications like image search and similarity comparisons. You will also discover how to complete tasks such as object detection and learn how models (like YOLO) are able to detect multiple objects in an image.

 

You will also learn about image segmentation and classification at the pixel level. This will involve using architectures like U-Nets and DenseNets. Furthermore, you will learn how they are used in a variety of image segmentation tasks from perception for self-driving cars to medical image analysis.

 

As with the other Deep Learning Developer modules, you will have the opportunity to build multiple models yourself.

 

This workshop is eligible for funding support. For more details, please refer to the "Pricing" tab above.

 

In this course, participants will learn: 

  • Advanced classification and objection detection
  • An introduction into PyTorch and TorchVision
  • Skills to create applications like image search and similarity comparisons
  • Image segmentation and classification at the pixel level with architectures such as U-Nets and DenseNets

Recommended Prerequisites:

  • Must have attended Module 1: Deep Learning Jumpstart Workshop 
  • You MUST have a stable wifi connection to join the online workshop via your laptop
  • Please watch the introductory videos that will be sent out separately
  • Please experiment with the pre-exercises given

 

Agenda

 

Advanced Computer Vision with Deep Learning Online Agenda

 

To ensure that each participant has a strong understanding of the materials given, and the ability to utilise the tools effectively, there will be multiple opportunities for participants to ask questions during the curriculum, in smaller breakout groups as well as individual project clinic sessions.

 

Pre-registration

 

The link and guide to set up for the online training will be provided a few days before, so that participants can sign up before the actual day of training.
