A full-day workshop on Feb. 22, 2019, introduced UW students, faculty and staff to the basics of machine learning, an approach to Artificial Intelligence, and how to apply deep learning techniques to a range of computer vision tasks. While machine learning uses algorithms that parse and learn data inputs, deep learning structures layers of algorithms to create an artificial neural network that can logically learn and make decisions from data inputs. The Deep Learning Institute was organized and hosted by UW-IT and the eScience Institute, with funding from NVIDIA, Dell, and Google. Read the full story on the Deep Learning Institute.
