This course starts with the basics of the tf.keras API including defining model architectures, optimizers, and saving/loading models. You then learn advanced concepts such as callbacks, regularization, TensorBoard, and activation functions. After training your models, you build integrations with the MLflow tracking API to reproduce and version your experiments. You will apply model interpretability libraries such as LIME and SHAP to understand how the network generates predictions. You will also gain familiarity with Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) and how to perform transfer learning to reduce model training time. Substantial class time is spent on scaling your deep learning applications, from distributed inference with pandas UDFs to distributed hyperparameter search with Hyperopt to distributed model training with Horovod. This course is taught fully in Python

Does the course schedule include a Lunchbreak?

Lunch is normally an hour long and begins at noon. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juice are available all day in the kitchen. Fruit, muffins and bagels are served each morning. There are numerous restaurants near each of our centers, and some popular ones are indicated on the Area Map in the Student Welcome Handbooks - these can be picked up in the lobby or requested from one of our ExitCertified staff.

How can someone reach me during class?

If someone should need to contact you while you are in class, please have them call the center telephone number and leave a message with the receptionist.

What languages are used to deliver training?

Most courses are conducted in English, unless otherwise specified. Some courses will have the word "FRENCH" marked in red beside the scheduled date(s) indicating the language of instruction.

What does GTR stand for?

GTR stands for Guaranteed to Run; if you see a course with this status, it means this event is confirmed to run. View our GTR page to see our full list of Guaranteed to Run courses.

thorough course covering materials needed to understand aws, architecture, and their interactions. Labs helped

The course was extremely well presented and the content is very logical and easy to understand.

Great remote learning experience. Instruction was delivered with enthusiasm and expertise.

ExitCertified is an excellent provider - I have done 3 courses with one in Virginia so far. My next course will be to ramp up on azure

I thought the labs and content were helpful in understanding the services associated with devops
