Thursday is Training Day
Thursday is Training Day offers DAC attendees the opportunity to attend high-quality training sessions in popular subjects from leading training provider Doulos. All sessions are taught by highly respected Doulos instructors who are each subject matter experts and who each have a wide experience of teaching engineers at all skill levels. Attendees may choose sessions from two parallel tracks. Many attendees will want to attend both the morning and afternoon sessions from the same track, but it is also possible to mix-and-match sessions from two different tracks or to attend just a single half-day session.

As well as being a general-purpose programming and scripting language, Python has become one of the most popular languages for scientific computing and more recently for deep learning. Python is everywhere, and Python is cool.
Python is easy to learn, and Python programs are very readable, even by people who don't know Python. There are Python libraries available for doing pretty much anything.
In this tutorial you will learn enough to start using Python as a scripting language and you will become sufficiently familiar with Python to start making sense of the emerging libraries and frameworks used for deep learning, such as TensorFlow and Keras. This tutorial will show you some of the cool things you can do with Python right out-of-the-box!
You can learn more about the Python language and about Deep Learning in the morning and afternoon sessions on 'Thursday is Training Day'.
