This workshop will demonstrate a zero-to-hero tutorial on how to solve a classification task using deep learning. The tutorial kicks off demonstrating a simple classification task on synthetic data, first in low and then in high dimension. Then, a harder classification task based on FashinMNIST, a famous dataset containing images of clothes, will be tackled. Apart from solving the classification task itself, we will show how to generate and analyze embedding vectors that can be used to solve other downstream tasks, different from the original classification problem on which the model was trained. Finally, we are going to face a more advanced type of classification problem, namely, predicting links on a graph using Graph Neural Networks. Link prediction will be demonstrated on an open source dataset that contains information about collaborations among authors of scientific papers. The target of this workshop is to show how we can use Python to solve the the aforementioned tasks, taking into account both the data science aspects and the engineering and project lifecycle related ones. In particular, the python packages that we are going to cover in the workshop are PyTorch, PyTorch-Lightning, Deep Graph Library.
