Cluj School of AI Topics Overview

Source: Deep Learning on Medium


Hello World,

The start of 2019 seems to have laid out a very interesting year ahead. One of my projects has me absolutely captivated by its possibilities and I was able to assist my wife with one of her personal endeavors. All throughout, the regular office hours have also been pretty crazy. Unfortunately, all this meant I wasn’t able to progress with Cluj School of AI as initially targeted.

With that out of the way, the results of the welcome form have clearly pointed the direction Cluj School of AI needs to go in the near future. About 60% of respondents are beginners or have no experience with Python or AI and almost half are interested in classes for beginners.

What will follow is a series of blog posts starting with how to set up a Python environment, a quick overview on Python and forward into gradually more advanced topics. Each post will link to more in-depth resources, but will keep focus on its specific topic.

We’ll have meeting or workshops that will bring a series of posts together with presentations, live code and Q&A.

A tentative overview of topics to be covered:

Epoch 1 — Intro to Python

  • Environment setup
  • IDEs
  • Python Overview

Epoch 2 — Python for Data Science (Analysis and Visualization)

  • Numpy
  • Pandas
  • Working with Data
  • Matplotlib
  • Plotly
  • Seaborn

Epoch 3 — Machine Learning — Regression

  • Simple/Multiple Linear Regression
  • Support Vector Regression
  • Decision Trees Regression
  • Random Forest Regression

Epoch 4 — Machine Learning — Classification

  • Logistic Regression
  • K Nearest Neighbours
  • Support Vector Machines
  • Decision Trees Classification
  • Random Forest Classification

Epoch 5 — Machine Learning — Clustering

  • K Means Clustering
  • Hierarchical Clustering

Epoch 6 — Machine Learning — Other subjects

  • Principal Component Analysis
  • Recommender Systems
  • Natural Language Processing

Epoch 7 — Deep Learning

  • Neural Networks
  • Convolutional Neural Networks
  • Recurrent Neural Networks
  • Auto Encoders

The list above will probably change as we go along.

While meetings will be held in Cluj-Napoca, the posts are meant for anyone that might find them useful.

The first post will be published Tuesday, March 19th. See you then :)
