A Hands-on Introduction to Pytorch, Using Text Classification
PyTorch is a popular framework for deep learning. This is a 45-minute workshop for PyTorch beginners. We will walk you through the basics of the PyTorch library, using a text classification application as an example. During the workshop, we will demonstrate a Jupyter notebook, which will allow participants to directly experiment with the code.

Prerequisites: The examples will run in Python, so knowing the basics of Python syntax is recommended. Bring a computer with Anaconda (Python 3) and Pytorch installed.

Curiosity Driven Learning, a promising strategy in Deep Reinforcement Learning
Curiosity Driven Learning is one of the most exciting and promising strategy in deep reinforcement learning: we create agents that are able to produce rewards and learn from them. In this workshop, you’ll learn what is curiosity, how it works, and understand the process of how an agent generates this intrinsic reward using a trained agent in a video game environment. By the end of this workshop, you'll be able to understand how curiosity driven learning agents work and the main elements needed to implement them.
