Institute of Space Technology AI Lecture Series, September 2022
A three-day mini-course that introduces students to techniques, methods, and practices needed to start working on deep learning. The course has two objectives: 1) introduce students to theoretical concepts in deep learning, including autoencoders, tSNE for data visualization, visual object detection, and recurrent neural networks; and 2) provide hands on training on how to develop a deep learning system using Python+PyTorch ecosystem. The selected topics provide an opportunity to discuss common concepts, such as unsupervised learning and generative models, deep features, techniques for understanding the inner working of deep networks, and sequence modeling.
This mini-course covers a set of topics in deep learning. The course is organized as follows. Each day begins with a 90 minutes lecture that discusses the topic of the day. It is followed by a 120 minute hand-on session where students are encouraged to implement a deep learning system closely related to the discussed topic. We plan to use Python+PyTorch eco-system for implementation. It is expected that students have prior experience in Python programming.
