Duration: Morning

Level: Beginner to Intermediate

Prerequisite: None

Keith McCormick

Principal Data Scientist


Nothing dominates the technology news cycle more than AI in its many forms, and for data professionals, the discussion often mentions deep learning. But what are the use cases for this technology? How do you know whether the challenge you are currently facing might need deep learning?

In this course, Keith McCormick will teach students what deep learning is and how it has become the tool of choice for certain applications. Then the instructor will present a series of examples. Each will set up a business challenge, and the instructor will discuss the most common tools used to address the challenge, the connection to deep learning, and some of the successful applications that can be found in industry.

Examples will be drawn from classic deep learning use cases, including computer vision, natural language processing, and large language models. Specific tools will be explicitly referenced, and software examples will be shown.
