Faculty Development Programme on Deep Learning

Organised by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Vadapalani Campus.

About the FDP

Our Institution believes in continuous development. As part of this, a Faculty Development Programme is being organized on Deep Learning. Deep Learning is a part of a broader family of machine learning methods based on learning data representations, as opposed to task-specific algorithms.

Expert: Dr. G. Paavai Anand and Dr. J. Arun Nehru Asst Professors, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Vadapalani 


A Faculty Development Programme on “Deep Learning” was held on 3/12/2018 & 4/12/2018. The FDP had participants from various colleges and started with the welcome address given by Dr. S. Prasanna Devi, HOD, Department of Computer science and Engineering which was then followed by the sessions handled by Dr. G. Paavai Anand and Dr. J. Arun Nehru. Theoretical foundations of deep learning were discussed in session 1, followed by a hands-on session on the installation set up for anaconda. In this session, basic neural network implementation in Python was discussed and implemented. During session 1 of second day, hands-on training on Text classification using deep learning framework was done. This was followed by the hands-on training on image classification using convolutional neural networks in session 2. The FDP was over with a Valedictory function and certificates were distributed to the FDP participants and the internal resource persons cum coordinators. The feedbacks from the participants suggested that the FDP was a grand success.
