IIT to host Deep Learning workshop for working professionals


The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mandi in collaboration with IIT Mandi iHub and HCI Foundation (iHub), is hosting a 6-day weekend workshop on Deep Learning Crash Course (ADLCC 2021) for executives and working professionals. The workshop will be held between July 3 and July 18 (6 days, over 3 weekends) and will cover theory and lab sessions scheduled on every weekend. Participants will receive certificates post the assessment at the end of the workshop.


“This workshop will be the key to enter the mystic world of AI/ML. Extensive learning has been planned through comprehensive sessions organised by various experts. Most importantly the specially designed hand-on sessions will be a boon to completely novice learners. We hope that this workshop will effectively democratise AI/ML Learning,” says Aditya Nigam, workshop coordinator and assistant professor, School of Computing and Electrical Engineering, IIT Mandi.


Key points to be covered in this workshop include:


Basics of Machine learning & Neural Networks

Convolutional Neural Networks

Object Localisation and Detection

Autoencoders and Variational AutoEncoder

Generative Adversarial Networks

Recurrent Neural Network and Long Short-Term Memory, Siamese Network

Transformer Network



Stressing at the need for Deep Learning knowledge for executives and working Professionals, Varun Dutt, key speaker at ADLCC 2021, and associate professor, School of Computing and Electrical Engineering, IIT Mandi, says, “This workshop is the first of its kind sponsored by the iHub and IIT Mandi and the entire workshop series includes 6 such workshop events in 2021 in total. The current workshop would provide students, academics, and industry personnel hands-on sessions on AI/ML topics that span a number of domains, including the human-computer interaction area.”


The workshop will have a selected batch of participants and the applications will be shortlisted on a first come - first serve basis. The workshop may pave the way for a research internship opportunity at the iHub and IIT Mandi.
