Deep Learning Camp Jeju 2017 is a month-long program (July 3-28, 2017) where participants gain hands-on experience with TensorFlow through individual-based projects with the goal of implementing new deep learning related ideas, and/or already-published ideas. More than a dozen industry experts with strong backgrounds in deep learning and TensorFlow implementation will serve as project mentors to guide participants.
Jeff Dean (Google Senior Fellow via Hangout), Rajat Monga (Google/TensorFlow Director (TBC)), and Prof. KyungHyun Cho (NYU, (TBC)) will give keynote talks. Plus, you will have access to experienced mentors including Namju Kim (Head of Research for Kakao Brain), Sung Kim.
Those selected as participants will be provided with one round-trip airfare (up to 300 USD) to Jeju Island (South Korea), room and board at Jeju National University, USD 1,000 in stipends (can be used for the airfare, etc.) and USD 500 to 1,000 in Google Cloud Credit. In addition to these benefits, participants will gain valuable and practical experience in the field of deep learning.
Mentor Recruitment: If you’re interested in sharing your experiences and expertise with the camp, please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will serve as personal mentors to 1 to 2 participants, holding 2 to 3 on/offline meetings a week to help them successfully complete their projects. While it is possible for you to provide online-only mentoring, we suggest you visit Jeju Island to meet with your mentees in person. Round-trip airfare would be provided (up to USD 300) to Jeju Island and up to five (5) days of room and board.
A: Basically, we design a deep learning model and fully implement using TensorFlow. It is also possible to (re) implement a published paper (by others) and adapt it for new datasets. Based on this, each participant will propose their own plans in their application.
A: No visa is required for most countries. Please check at http://www.immigration.go.kr/HP/IMM80/imm_04/imm_p01/vm3.jsp
A: Unfortunately No.
A: No. Anyone who can spend one full month in Jeju Island in Korea, and work from 10AM-5PM during the weekdays can apply.
A: No, this is not a contest. Individuals will have different projects.
A: This is not specifically a teaching event. The applicant should have good understandings on programming, machine learning/deep learning, and TensorFlow. However, we will provide mentors to assist you on your project.
A: We will provide some public data sets but participants can also utilize their own data.
A: We won’t provide PCs. You need to bring your laptop. However, we will provide cloud server credits.
A: We will provide cloud server credits.
A: There is no formal criteria, but we are looking for interesting and feasible projects.
A: There is no penalty, but mentors will guide each participant to success.
A: It’s OK. As long as the project is interesting, we will consider it. You can also propose a small portion of a larger project that you wish to work on for a month.
A: Yes, reinforcement learning is acceptable. Feel free to include other types of interesting machine learning projects.
A: Yes, the keynote and open seminars are open to everyone. We will have a separate announcement regarding keynote sessions and open seminars.
