Session #2

"Intro to Deep Learning with Unity"
Whether you're an artist, an engineer or somewhere in between, attend this session to gain a solid understanding of the full training-to-evaluation pipeline. Jeremy, Unity's Machine Learning Graphics lead, will cover supervised and unsupervised deep learning, with a focus on generative content creation. You'll learn what types of problems are a good fit for deep learning along with practical tips on topics such as pre-trained networks vs training from scratch, local vs cloud compute, and how to leverage Unity for training data. Finally, he'll explain how to execute a deep learning network in Unity using the new Inference Engine.
