Deep Learning and CNNs—A Silicon Valley Meetup

A fast-paced introduction to Deep Learning concepts, such as activation functions, cost functions, back propagation with Oswald Campesato (bio below). Then we'll take a quick dive into CNNs, followed by a Keras code sample for defining a CNN. Basic knowledge of vectors, matrices, and derivatives is helpful to derive the maximum benefit from this session.

Oswald Campasato, MBA, MA, MIS, BSCS, BA, is the co-founding CEO of iQuarkt and author of 20 technical books (so far). He is a software engineer with more than 20 years’ experience as a software developer and has worked in numerous management roles. Previous experience includes jobs at Oracle, AAA, and Just Systems of Japan, along with various startups. He is a frequent public speaker on the topic of deep learning and related issues. He's gearing up to publish two more books on the topics of TensorFlow and Keras.

Oswald is a UCSC Extension instructor and teaches courses on Deep Learning and AI with TensorFlow; Deep Learning and AI with Keras; and Introduction to Machine Learning and Data Mining.  For more on the courses:

The event was good and helpful for me to decide what courses to take.
The sound system was a little quiet and it was hard to hear at times, but maybe I'm just old :)
