ML Camp Jeju 2017



What are we doing during the one month program?

Basically, we design a deep learning model and fully implement using TensorFlow. It is also possible to (re) implement a published paper (by others) and adapt it for new datasets. Based on this, each participants will propose their own plans in their application.

What type of Visa is required for foreigners?

A: No visa is required for most countries. Please check at

Is this a training or teaching program?

This is not specifically a teaching event. The applicant should have good understandings on programming, machine learning/deep learning, and TensorFlow. However, we will provide mentors to assist you on your project.

Will data for training be provided or it is up to participants?

We will provide some public data sets but participants can also utilize their own data.

Should I bring my laptop?

It’s OK. As long as the project is interesting, we will consider it. You can also propose a small portion of a larger project that you wish to work on for a month.

Is this only for deep learning? Can I propose a reinforcement learning project?

Yes, reinforcement learning is acceptable. Feel free to include other types of interesting machine learning projects.

Can I participate in a keynote session or open seminars even though I am not a camp participant?
