ICEFOSS (ICEFOSS is a Conference for Enthusiasts of Free and Open Source Software) is Free Software Conference organized by Fisat Free Software Cell (FFSC). ICEFOSS 2017, scheduled on October 6,7 2017 includes Workshops covering different aspects of Free Software. ICEFOSS 2017 is the sixth edition of this conference.

WORKSHOPS:

FROM NEURAL NETWORK TO DEEP LEARNING

With machine learning techniques gaining momentum in various fields, deep learning is a most sought after technique for solving a lot of problems. It has found applications in object detection, detecting fraudulent banking transactions, translating between different languages etc. Neural network is a starting point for these developments. The ultimate aim of these tools are to mimic human brain.

This one day workshop explores different free software tools for use in machine learning. Starting with simple neural networks up-to deep learning techniques. This hands-on workshop teaches fundamentals of neural network and goes on to build some working neural networks. GNU Gneural Network and different python based packages will be discussed. 

Prerequisite: Basic understanding of Python 
Level: Beginner

LEARNING RUST BY HACKING EMBEDDED LINUX SYSTEMS

The Rust programming language is fast gaining popularity as a safer and more productive alternative to C/C++ for systems programming. This workshop will introduce Rust to participants and demonstrate how it can be used to write code running on embedded Linux systems. 

CODING GAMEBOTS USING OPENAI GYM

Machine Learning based game bots took center stage in 2016 when Google game bot beat Go champion Le Sedol four games to one. OpenAI founded in 2015, aims to “build safe artificial general intelligence (AGI) and ensure AGI's benefits are as widely and evenly distributed as possible.” OpenAI Gym is a toolkit for developing and comparing reinforcement learning algorithms. Gym is written in Python, and there are multiple environments such as robot simulations or Atari games.

This one day workshops gives a high level understanding of Gym for developing gamebots/robot simulations. 

Prerequisite: Basic understanding of Python 
Level: Beginner 

MILES TO GO: GOLANG WORKSHOP

Go (often referred to as golang) is an open source programming language created at Google in 2007 by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson. The primary objective of this workshop is to teach fundamentals of Go programming language. The workshop will include setting up environment for Go development, explanation about syntax & concepts and solving problems. The participants will be able to write idiomatic and effective Go code after the session.
