Deep Learning for Life Sciences

Thursday 09 May, 2019 SURF, Utrecht, Netherlands

Deep learning has become a really hot topic for different areas of research in order to extract information and correlations between huge amounts of data that are otherwise very difficult or even effectively impossible to process in a purely analytic way. This workshop will begin with a morning session that will be presenting an overview of machine learning techniques, and later on introducing the basics concepts needed to understand artificial neural networks.
