Introduction to PyTorch
Valerio Maggio

In this tutorial we will go through the main features of the PyTorch framework for Deep Learning.
We will start by learning how to build a neural network from the ground up, deep diving into torch.tensor, Dataset and optimisers.
We will analyse data cases from different domains (e.g. numerical, images), introducing different neural network layers and architecture. Last but not least, a few tips from a pure Data science-y perspective will be shared, to appreciate the wonderful integration PyTorch has with the Python Data model!
