Are you curious about Deep Learning but don't know where to start? Do you like meeting new people and learning new things? Then you've come to the right place!

Pink Programming presents an online Intro to Deep Learning course. Teacher-led lessons will be combined with hands-on programming tasks—all to give you the best possible programming start.

Pink Programming’s summer coding camps are dearly loved among their participants and new friendships have been forged every summer for the past six years. We don’t want to pass on this despite this year’s theme of social distancing. We will offer online summer courses that are unlike anything you’ve seen before! 

During the camp, we will mix things up with fun social activities like cook-alongs, yoga, and games. You will also meet female developers, who will tell you about their journeys and be available to answer all of your questions.

About the camp


Fundamentals of Deep Learning
is an intermediate level camp focusing on the basics of neural networks, which are a popular and powerful way of solving complex machine learning problems. Workshops will deal with the basics of neural networks, such as their workings and architecture, combined with introductory hands-on projects in image recognition and text processing using the popular Python library Keras. 

Our goal is to inspire and give you a good foundation to continue learning more about the field. The camp is perfect for you who have recently started your journey in Machine Learning and want to take your first step into the world of Deep Learning. We especially welcome people with different backgrounds as we believe that we can all learn from each other one step at a time. 

When we are not coding, there will be the opportunity to do various online activities like yoga, joining in with a cook-along and listening to inspirational talks from the teachers and mentors. Despite being online, the camp will be a social occasion to learn together with others and get a network within the Machine Learning field.

For each day of the camp, we will be programming approximately between 9 am and 5 pm. Both before and after there will be other social or recreational activities to do.

Come join us to learn about both the mysteries and practicalities of Deep Learning! 

Prerequisites

  • Basic Programming knowledge (preferably Python) including:
    • Variables and data types
    • Lists, tuples, dictionaries and for loops
    • Conditional statements
    • Functions
  • Good to know (if you do not meet the requirements, don't worry. Then we suggest you prepare by going through the tutorial links below before the camp)
    • Pandas/Numpy or similar libraries in e.g. R (can you complete the exercises 1-5?)
    • Matplotlib/Seaborn or similar libraries in e.g. R (can you draw a line chart? E.g. exercise 2)
  • A little bit of familiarity with common Machine Learning problems and terminology: 
    • Preparing your data (identifying missing values, split into train and test set)
    • The difference between regression and classification
    • What it means for an algorithm to be supervised or unsupervised
    • Some evaluation metrics (accuracy, precision, recall, MSE)
    • Some basic knowledge of math/statistics (mean, standard, deviation)

There is no need to know very many algorithms or advanced evaluation methods! If you do, be aware that the course also welcomes participants who don't yet have that knowledge :) 

Definitely not needed

  • Masters in Machine Learning
  • Professional Data Scientist
  • Math genius
  • Any previous knowledge of Deep Learning

Expected learning outcomes

  • Introduction to the basic concepts (e.g. hidden layers, activation functions, forward-and backward propagation) in deep learning
  • Introduction to popular tools and libraries such as Google Colab and Keras
  • Hands-on experience with text processing using recurrent neural networks (RNN)

  • Hands-on experience with image recognition using convolutional neural networks (CNN)

  • Real world application of deep learning
  • Ethics and responsible AI

    All you need to know
