This is a slide deck from a presentation, that my colleague Shirin Glander (https://www.slideshare.net/ShirinGlander/) and I did together. As we created our respective parts of the presentation on our own, it is quite easy to figure out who did which part of the presentation as the two slide decks look quite different ... :) For the sake of simplicity and completeness, I just copied the two slide decks together. As I did the "surrounding" part, I added Shirin's part at the place when she took over and then added my concluding slides at the end. Well, I'm sure, you will figure it out easily ... ;) The presentation was intended to be an introduction to deep learning (DL) for people who are new to the topic. It starts with some DL success stories as motivation. Then a quick classification and a bit of history follows before the "how" part starts. The first part of the "how" is some theory of DL, to demystify the topic and explain and connect some of the most important terms on the one hand, but also to give an idea of the broadness of the topic on the other hand. After that the second part dives deeper into the question how to actually implement DL networks. This part starts with coding it all on your own and then moves on to less coding step by step, depending on where you want to start. The presentation ends with some pitfalls and challenges that you should have in mind if you want to dive deeper into DL - plus the invitation to become part of it. As always the voice track of the presentation is missing. I hope that the slides are of some use for you, though.
