In this workshop, I will build your intuition in deep learning, without using a framework.
You can get started using one of the following methods.
1. Setup using
conda env create -f environment.yml conda activate dl-workshop # older versions of conda use `source activate` rather than `conda activate` python -m ipykernel install --user --name dl-workshop jupyter labextension install @jupyter-widgets/jupyterlab-manager
If you want
jax with GPU, you will need to build from source, or follow the installation instructions
2. "just click Binder"
If you are using Jupyter Lab, you will want to also ensure that
ipywidgets is installed:
# only if you don't have ipywidgets installed. conda install -c conda-forge ipywidgets # the next line is necessary. jupyter labextension install @jupyter-widgets/jupyterlab-manager
The key idea for this tutorial is that if we really study deep learning's fundamental model, linear regression, then we can get a better understanding of the components - a model with parameters, a loss function, and an optimizer to change the parameters to minimize the loss. Most of us who become practitioners (rather than researchers) can then take for granted that the same ideas apply to any more complex/deeper model.
I'd love to hear how well this workshop went for you. Please consider leaving feedback so I can improve the workshop.
