Neural networks are everywhere nowadays. But while it seems everyone is using them, training your first neural network can be quite a hurdle to overcome.
In this talk I will take you by the hand, and following an example image classifier I trained, I will take you through the steps of making an image classifier in PyTorch. I will show you code snippets and explain the more intricate parts. Also, I will tell you about my experience, and about what mistakes to prevent. After this all you need to start training your first classifier is a data set!
Of course I will provide a link to the full codebase at the end. The talk will focus on the practical aspect of training a neural network, and will only touch the theoretical side very briefly. Some basic prior knowledge of neural networks is beneficial, but not required, to follow this talk.
