Education Council and Education Board

The ACM education activity has been reorganized into two entities: the Education Council and the Education Board. The Board wields the final executive and decision-making power to facilitate the work of the Education Council. The Council is a task-force-based, networking-oriented environment whose aim is to promote ACM's educational mission to as wide a range of constituencies as possible: universities, community colleges, high schools, corporations, and the US government.

Intro to Deep Learning Theory and Practice Featuring Keras

Expert Adam Breindel offers an introduction to how deep learning models work, where they come from, and why they have become so popular. In just three three-hour sessions, you’ll get a solid feel for selecting, building, tuning, and training models (as well as the critical mathematical concepts behind deep learning)—all without doing any extensive work in linear algebra and vector calculus. Learn about deep feed-forward networks, convolutional networks, and recurrent network variants like LSTM, generative networks, reinforcement learning, and real-world operational issues.
