    Why watch this?

    Recurrent neural networks (RNNs) are designed to model sequential information and are widely used to solve the problems of speech recognition, language modeling, translation, and image captioning.

    Are you willing to learn how to perform basic mathematical calculations or recognize handwriting using RNNs and TensorFlow together? Join the webinar to learn more!

    In this webinar, Rajiv Shah, Adjunct Assistant Professor at University of Illinois, will provide a brief introduction to recurrent neural networks.


    • How Recurrent Neural Networks are used
    • Tensorflow Playground
    • Learn a Sine Wave
    • Learn to Add
    • Learning Handwriting
    • Q&A

    Why join the webinar:

    • Discover how recurrent neural networks operate.
    • Learn the prime reasons for choosing an RNN rather than a standard network
    • Walk through code in TensorFlow for modeling a sine wave, performing basic addition, and generating handwriting

    Who should attend:

    This webinar will be of interest to Data Scientists, Software Engineers and Entrepreneurs in the areas of Connected Cars, Internet of Things/Industrial Internet, Medical Devices, Financial Technology (blockchain) and predictive apps/APIs of all sorts.
