## Deep Learning with TenserFlow workshop.

In this workshop you will learn the basic concepts of TensorFlow, the main functions, operations and the execution pipeline. Starting with a simple “Hello World” example, throughout the workshop you will be able to see how TensorFlow can be used in curve fitting, regression, classification and minimization of error functions. This concept is then explored in the Deep Learning world. You will evaluate the common, and not so common, Deep Neural Networks and see how these can be exploited in the real world with complex raw data using TensorFlow. In addition, you will learn popular deep learning API such as Keras and Teano.
