NVIDIA-BDI Joint Workshop
HKUST Big Data Institute (BDI) partnered with NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute and launched a half-day practical Deep Learning Fundamentals Workshop. This workshop was exclusively for verifiable academic students, staff, and researchers.
Deep learning is a hot topic in both academia and industry since it has recently dramatically improved the state-of-the-art research areas such as speech recognition, computer vision, prediction of drug molecule activities, and many other machine learning tasks. The basic idea in deep learning is to automatically learn to represent data in multiple layers of increasing abstraction, thus helping to discover intricate structure in large datasets.
