Deep Learning is a branch of Machine Learning that has recently achieved astonishing results in a number of different domains. This course will provide a hands-on introduction to Deep Learning, starting from its foundations and discussing the various types of deep architectures and tools currently available.

The theoretical classes will be accompanied by work in lab (with Python using Keras and Tensorflow), which will constitute an integral part of the course, giving the possibility of practicing deep learning with examples from real-world applications, with particular focus on visual and temporal data. Besides well established approaches, the course will also highlight current trends, open problems and potential future lines of research.
