Starting this summer, we’re excited to announce that our co-founder and Chief of Machine Learning Ragavan and our Machine Learning Engineer Jodie will be teaching a graduate course on Applied Deep Learning at the University of Toronto.
Ragavan and Jodie were recently appointed as Adjunct Lecturers at the University’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health, where they will teach a course on Applied Deep Learning to graduate students studying at the school (as well as those from other faculties). In addition, the course will also feature a number of guest lecturers from our Machine Learning Engineering team throughout the semester.
We think this course will fill an important gap in the current academic offerings for students advancing their knowledge of machine learning. At UofT and other institutions today, the majority of courses focus almost exclusively on the theoretical underpinnings of the field. With this course, Ragavan and Jodie are setting out to change that.
