Neuromation Researchers Teach Deep Learning Topics in Computer Vision at Harbour Space
In May and June, Neuromation Chief Research Officer Sergey Nikolenko and Neuromation Researcher Alex Davydow taught a course at the Harbour Space University in Barcelona. The course was called “Neural Networks and Computer Vision” and was devoted to deep learning topics in computer vision, such as convolutional neural networks, object detection, segmentation and GANs for image generation. You can find the course program at the Harbour Space website and Sergey has made the slides available on his own website.
Harbour Space is a very interesting university in that they teach a serious and quite comprehensive program that includes computer science, data science as well as a number of other disciplines. In order to accomplish all this, they came up with the idea of teaching in three-week units where the students work every day on a single topic for three weeks, basically giving them the equivalent of a semester-long course taught once a week. The upside of this system is that Harbour Space is able to invite professors who wouldn’t be able to come to Barcelona to teach for half a year, and they get top names in every field to teach.
While Sergey had taught at Harbour Space in the past, this is the first time the course was supported by Neuromation, and that the practical work of the course was conducted by students exclusively on the Neuromation Platform.
We were extremely pleased with the quality of the students at Harbour Space and look forward to working with them and seeing great things from them in the future. Thank you Harbour Space!
