2021 Gene Golub SIAM Summer School

Theory and Practice of Deep Learning

The eleventh Gene Golub SIAM Summer School will take place from 19 – 30 July 2021 at AIMS South Africa in Muizenberg, South Africa.

The focus of the school will be the theory, implementation, and application of deep learning based on neural nets with many layers. Students will learn the mathematical underpinnings of deep learning using a combination of functional analysis and optimization theory. They will be introduced to applications that include computer vision, nonlinear programming, and forecasting, in addition to attending lectures by practitioners of deep learning in industry.

The summer school will include an important computing component, in which students will implement deep learning algorithms primarily using Python with TensorFlow and Keras. High performance computing resources will be provided by the AIMS supercomputing facility.
