This 3-hour course will offer a brief hands-on introduction to deep-learning based image recognition tools. Participants will gain familiarity with preparing and importing images into software (python) and applying one of the foundational deep learning architectures to classify the images and create vector representations. We will discuss different applications of the output of deep learning tools to extract managerial and scientific insights. In particular, we will discuss applications of these tools to creating large-scale measures that have otherwise proven elusive or susceptible to bias.
