You’ll need intermediate experience with Python (incl. packages such as Numpy and Pandas) and basic knowledge of machine learning to start this program. You’ll also need to be familiar with calculus (multivariable derivatives) and linear algebra (matrix multiplication).See detailed requirements.
Get your first taste of deep learning by applying style transfer to your own images, and gain experience using development tools such as Anaconda and Jupyter notebooks.
Learn neural networks basics, and build your first network with Python and Numpy. Use modern deep learning frameworks (Keras, TensorFlow) to build multi-layer neural networks, and analyze real data.Your First Neural Network
Learn how to build convolutional networks and use them to classify images (faces, melanomas, etc.) based on objects that appear in them. Use these networks to learn data compression and image denoising.Dog-Breed Classifier
Build your own recurrent networks and long short-term memory networks with Keras and TensorFlow; perform sentiment analysis and generate new text. Use recurrent networks to generate new text from TV scripts.Generate TV scripts
Learn to understand and implement the DCGAN model to simulate realistic images, with Ian Goodfellow, the inventor of GANS (generative adversarial networks).Generate Faces
Use deep neural networks to design agents that can learn to take actions in a simulated environment. Apply reinforcement learning to complex control tasks like video games and robotics.Teach a Quadcopter How to Fly
