Deep-learning for cognitive computing for developers

Individual course

Max amount of FITech students: 20

Persons without a valid study right at a Finnish university or university of applied sciences have preference to this course.

By any measure, the past few years have been landmark years for the discussion around artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential impact on business and society. Being based on artificial intelligence, cognitive computing systems are “systems that learn at scale, reason with purpose and interact with humans naturally”. Cognitive computing solutions encompass machine learning, reasoning, natural language processing, deep learning, speech and vision, human-computer interaction and more.

This course aims to provide a practical view to the domain of cognitive computing and machine intelligence. Students will learn how to build solutions based on machine intelligence using corresponding open-source software libraries (e.g. TensorFlow). At the same time, students will be capable to design and build their own services and apps using cloud-based cognitive services of big competing players in this field, such as IBM, Google, Microsoft, etc.

Course contents

Introduction to cognitive computing and deep learning and their application for computer vision, NLP and reinforcement learning domains.
