AWS Artificial Intelligence (AI) Bootcamp

September 14th | Bochum

Please note: we have now closed the registration for the AI Bootcamp in Bochum as it is now full. Thanks for your understanding! 

Amazon AI services bring natural language understanding (NLU), automatic speech recognition (ASR), visual search and image recognition, text-to-speech (TTS), and machine learning (ML) technologies within the reach of every developer.

Join us for a day-long AI bootcamp in Bochum. We will provide an overview of AI and then dive deep into Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly and developing deep neural networks with Apache MXNet. You will learn core capabilities and use cases, and gain useful tips and best practices. The bootcamp is a mixture of theory and hands-on experience.

The aim of the bootcamp is to help attendees acquire:

  • Hands-on skills: AWS AI Services: Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly and Amazon Machine Learning
  • Theoretical knowledge: Deep Learning
  • Hands on skills: MXNet
  • Hands on skills: Deep Learning with MXNet
  • Hands on Skills: AWS Batch for model training

Please note the following are prerequisites for attending the event:

  • Python 2.7 or 3.x
  • Very basic understanding of matrix operations (matrix muliplication)
  • Very basic understanding of probability theory
  • Very basic understanding of optimization algorithms, most notably Stochastic gradient descent or SGD
  • Calling Restful Web Services
  • Basic familiarity with AWS concepts such as AIM roles
  • An active AWS account (credits will be provided)
