MSc in Artificial Intelligence for the University of Amsterdam.

Find Out MoreDeep learning is primarily a study of multi-layered neural networks, spanning over a great range of model architectures. This course is taught in the MSc program in Artificial Intelligence of the University of Amsterdam. In this course we study the theory of deep learning, namely of modern, multi-layered neural networks trained on big data. The course is taught by Assistant Professor Yuki Asano with Head Teaching Assistants Christos Athanasiadis and Danilo de Goede and Mohammadreza Salehi. The teaching assistants are Joris Baan, Nimi Barazani, Mohammad Mahdi Derakhshani, Jacobus Dijkman, Wangyuan Ding, Gergely Papp, Valentinos Pariza, Madhura Pawar, Jona Ruthardt, Davis Wessels, Pengwan Yang, Wenzhe Yin

This lecture introduces the structure of the Deep Learning course, and gives a short overview of the history and motivation of Deep Learning.

This tutorial introduces the practical sessions, the TA organizer team, etc. Afterwards, we will discuss the PyTorch machine learning framework, and introduce you to the basic concepts of Tensors, computation graphs and GPU computation. We will continue with a small hands-on tutorial of building your own, first neural network in PyTorch.

This lectures introduces basic concepts for Deep Feedforward Networks such linear and nonlinear modules, gradient-based learning and the backpropagation algorithm.

This lecture series discusses advanced optimizers, initialization, normalization and hyperparameter tuning.

In this tutorial, we will discuss the role of activation functions in a neural network, and take a closer look at the optimization issues a poorly designed activation function can have.

After the presentation, there will by a TA session for Q&A for assignment 1, lecture content and more.

This lecture series discusses advanced optimizers, initialization, normalization and hyperparameter tuning.

This lecture series covers convolutional neural networks for image processing.

In this tutorial, we will discuss the importance of proper parameter initialization in deep neural networks, and how we can find a suitable one for our network. In addition, we will review the optimizers SGD and Adam, and compare them on complex loss surfaces.

After the presentation, there will by a TA session for Q&A for assignment 1, lecture content and more.

This lecture series covers modern ConvNet architecture.

This lecture series covers Transformers

In this tutorial, we will implement three popular, modern ConvNet architectures: GoogleNet, ResNet, and DenseNet. We will compare them on the CIFAR10 dataset, and discuss the advantages that made them popular and successful across many tasks.

After the presentation, there will by a TA session for Q&A for assignment 2, lecture content and more.

Lecture on Graph Neural Networks.

Lecturer in deep variational autoencoder.

In this tutorial, we will discuss the relatively new breakthrough architecture: Transformers. We will start from the basics of attention and multi-head attention, and build our own Transformer. We will perform experiments on sequence-to-sequence tasks and set anomaly detection.

After the presentation, there will by a TA session for Q&A for assignment 3, lecture content and more.

No documents.

Deep Learning & The Natural Sciences

Gemerative Advetsarial Networks and difusion models

In this tutorial, we will discuss the implementation of Graph Neural Networks. In the first part of the tutorial, we will implement the GCN and GAT layer ourselves. In the second part, we use PyTorch Geometric to look at node-level, edge-level and graph-level tasks.

After the presentation, there will by a TA session for Q&A for assignment 2, lecture content and more.
