DeepLearning for Developers - Introduction to DeepLearning with Keras and TensorFlow

TensorFlow is an awesome library. But for the average developer fiddling with linear algebra is far to complicated. In this talk we'll give you a fast track recipe to master DeepLearning challenges using the Keras framework on top of TensorFlow. We'll start with basic image classification, show how you can implement a chat- bot and end with a Cryptocurrency price predictor. At the end of this talk you'll know how Convolutional Neural Networks, Long-Short-Term Memory Networks and Autoencoders work and how you can apply them using Keras and TensorFlow.
