from 9:30 am till 5:00 pm


10, Khreshchatyk str


On November 28, the workshop “NeuroWorkshop: One Day Immersion in Neural Networks” will be held under the guidance of Dmytro Soshnikov, Senior Technical Evangelist, Microsoft.

At present, all the major successes of artificial intelligence are connected with neural networks and deep learning. Neural networks can recognize human emotions on photos, turn pictures into paintings in the style of famous artists, understand and synthesize natural language.

During the training, you will learn all the basic concepts and learn how to use the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK) toolkit for image recognition and text synthesis

Requirements for participants:
Python will be useful for successful participation, at least at program level. Access to the Microsoft Azure Cloud is desirable, but not mandatory.

Dmitry Soshnikov

Dmitry has been in Microsoft for over 10 years. As a senior technology evangelist, he is engaged in popularizing the most advanced Microsoft technologies, as well as their application in practice for digital transformation in various companies and projects. He personally conducted dozens of hackathons, frequent speaker at profile IT conferences.

Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Associate Professor, teaches artificial intelligence and functional programming in the MFTI, NDU HSE, MAI. He is the author of several books and online courses. In his spare time, he involves children into technology, deals with digital magic and conducts Chinese tea ceremonies.
