Workshop Brief

Lots of buzzwords, lots of unicorns, but we will make it practical and lead you in your first steps to the magical place of data science, specifically, deep learning. We will talk a bit about the theory behind it, but mostly, we will demonstrate the variety of common techniques and usages. You will acquire the fundamental knowledge and tools to implement deep learning architecture by yourself.

  • The workshop will be held in Hebrew
  • Lectures and lecturers might be changed

Who Can Join Us

The workshop is for anyone who has at least 2 years of experience with programming (preferably some knowledge of python) , logic orientation, and an outstanding will to learn.
In the workshop, we will use python, sklearn, tensorflow and keras.
This is a complex topic, you should work hard and be very focused during those weeks ^_^

What differs AI from other kind of algorithms? What’s the relation between AI and Machine Learning? How did it all start and what is Deep Learning? In this lecture we will cover the buzz words, history and general notions around the topic of AI from a technical perspective.

We’ll gain a deep intuitive understanding of the machine learning field. Start with covering the main concepts and tools of machine learning, both theoretically and practically.
This is the fundamentals for the understanding of how to use Deep Neural Networks.
Among the main topics: what is the prediction pipeline, feature engineering, linear & logistic regression, learning tasks and measurement metrics.

Technological advances in  artificial intelligence allow to take photos of real life objects and automatically create 3D models out of them. This is going to change the way a 3D designer works, allowing for much more efficiency and time saving.

We will see a neural network that takes as input a 2D image and automatically a 3D model, using an encoding-decoding architecture. A ResNet based encoder is trained to encode the image into a z-vector with inherent 3D features and a decoder which is actually a boolean classifier is trained to create a 3D model from the z-vector. The reconstruction can happen in any voxel resolution, without retraining the network. Also we will discuss some of the challenges with 3D modelling and ML, we will present cool implementations of ML in the visualization, texture analysis, 3D modeling and other relevant subjects.

How to Learn from Little Data
One-shot classification for a small labeled image dataset.
We’ll also go over the architecture of its inspiration.
