*Speaker:* Oswald Campesato

*Talk Description*
A fast-paced introduction to Deep Learning concepts, such as activation
functions, cost functions, back propagation, and then a quick dive into
CNNs. Basic knowledge of vectors, matrices, and derivatives is helpful in
order to derive the maximum benefit from this session. Then we'll see a
short introduction to TensorFlow and TensorBoard. (Bonus points if you know
Zorn's Lemma, the Well-Ordering Theorem, and the Axiom of Choice.)

*Speaker Bio*

(6 degrees), and an author of 19 technical books. He has worked for Oracle,
AAA, and Just Systems of Japan, along with various startups. He has

developer to CTO, comfortable in 4 languages, and dreams of becoming fluent
in Japanese. Currently he is working in an AI start-up, and is an
instructor at UCSC for a Deep Learning (100% TensorFlow) course, and
