In universities and colleges around the world, Google has encouraged the creation of “Google Developer Student Clubs”. To round out the year, Sam Witteveen and I decided to offer our three-part “Back-to-Basic” series to clubs in the South-East Asia region, to introduce them to TensorFlow and Deep Learning.

This session was the first in the three-part series, and focused on some basic ideas of Machine Learning, and introduced Deep Learning via MLPs.

Our presentation was in two parts:

  • My initial talk, that :
    • Gave a brief overview of what is meant by “AI” as marketing term
    • Outlined the differences between Programming vs Machine Learning vs Deep Learning
      • with hand-waving
    • Illustrated what an MLP can learn using TensorFlow Playground
  • Sam did a Code-Along using Google Colab, where he lead the audience through :
    • Basic usage of Colab
    • Tensor shapes
    • Loading and preparing data
    • Building and Training a simple MLP model in Keras

The slides for my talk are here :
