Deep Learning Training Seminar
RISE offered a training seminar on Deep Learning aimed to give the basics of a subset of techniques of Machine Learning Algorithm called Deep Learning. It was organized into three presentations: the first gave the mathematical basics needed to understand the processes that happen inside a neural network and show the most common type of networks. The second presentation introduced the concept of recurrent neural network that deals with a sequence of data. The third part focused on several examples that solve real problems.
The environment is comfortable and modern, and the event well-organized and managed in a very competent manner. My personal belief is that RISE, with these events and with the skills of its expanding research group, is laying the groundwork for a solid scientific reality for the country.

This short training seminar aimed to introduce non-experts to deep learning techniques. I think Daniele did a good job at providing enough detail for the non-expert to understand the importance of these techniques and their wide range of applications.
