A big congratulations to Roy Eyono whose poster, Learning to Backpropagate, was awarded the IBM Poster Prize at the 2018 Deep Learning Indaba!
We are co-organising the 2nd annual Deep Learning Indaba which will be held at Stellenbosch University from 9-14 September 2018.
The Deep Learning Indaba exists to celebrate and strengthen machine learning in Africa through state-of-the-art teaching, networking, policy debate, and through our support programmes, such as the IndabaX and the Kambule and Maathai awards. The Indaba works towards the vision of Africans becoming critical contributors, owners, and shapers of the coming advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning. The report on the outcomes of the first Indaba 2017 can be read here.
He wins a trip to Long Beach, California in December, where he will attend NIPS 2017.
We are co-organising the first Deep Learning Indaba which will be held at the University of the Witwatersrand from 11-15 September 2017.
The week will feature an intensive programme of lectures and practical tutorials, covering a number of exciting and cutting-edge topics in deep learning. These sessions will be run by a number of international and local experts in the field. It promises to be an exciting week!
