Introduction to Deep Learning Using Tensorflow and Keras


During COVID-19, Research Commons' services continue.

SFU graduate students are encouraged to book consultations with the Research Commons staff and partners. Consultations are available by phone, via email, or through online video-conference.

In this workshop, the instructor will provide a case study of developing deep learning neural network model with Python in Google Colaboratory or Colab. You will be shown how to use Tensorflow and Keras to create a very simple deep neural net. It requires no setup and runs fully in cloud. It does not matter whether you are using a Mac or a Windows computer, having a google account to sign in to Google is enough.


  • Bring your own laptop.

    For this workshop you need to be familiar with:

  • basic machine learning concepts,
  • Python,
  • basic operations on data using numpy, Pandas, and Scikit-learn packages.


Note: This workshop is organized and facilitated by SciProg. SciProg—short for Scientific Programming Study Group—is dedicated to building a community of SFU researchers who perform computational data analysis as part of their academic work. SciProg promotes skill sharing and collaboration by (1) organizing 60 to 90-minute interactive workshops covering a wide range of software tools, (2) providing Q&A sessions for peer-to-peer assistance and collaboration, and (3) bringing researchers together at social events like Hacky Hours.
