In this tutorial I will give an overview of building deep learning models in Gluon, the new imperative API in Apache MxNet. The tutorial covers basic models, optimization, automatic differentiation, layer and network design and distributed learning. In particular, it covers deep structured networks for computer vision, natural language processing, and generative adversarial networks.
For information about Gluon see gluon.mxnet.io and discuss.gluon.ai.
