Intro to Deep Learning for Developers

Maureen McElaney


The stakes are high as companies scramble to make use of cutting edge technology to meet their clients needs. Deep Learning is more than buzz words, it's a powerful way to incorporate artificial intelligence and machine learning into your applications. You don't need to be an advanced mathematician to adopt these technologies, but there are some important things you need to know to do it effectively and responsibly. Learn about what deep learning is, what you need to know to adopt it, and the importance of open source in this space.
