This 2-hour technical workshop’s mission is to introduce the concepts of Computer Vision to students interested in Machine Learning, looking to explore avenues into the AI field! The event will begin with a brief introduction to ML and the different applications of neural networks, followed by a deep-dive into Computer Vision. Students will then get a chance to train their own neural network that detects and classifies different images in a binary classification problem.
Anqi Joyce Yang (prefers to be called Joyce) Bio - I am a Ph.D. student in the Machine Learning Group at the University of Toronto, advised by Prof. Raquel Urtasun. I am also a researcher at Waabi Innovation and a member of the Vector Institute. Previously I completed my M.Sc. in the same group, and my B.Sc. in Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, with a minor in Combinatorics and Optimization. My general research interests involve computer vision, machine learning and robotics.
