An Overview of 3 Popular Courses on Deep Learning

@machinelearnbot

I have been actively focusing on specialising Deep Learning for the last 2 years. My personal interest towards Deep learning started around 2015 when Google open sourced Tensorflow. Tried quickly couple of examples from the Tensorflow documentation and left with a feeling that Deep learning is difficult, partly because the framework was new and required better hardware and tons of patience. Fast forward to 2017 I have spent 100's of hours working on Deep learning projects and the technology has become more and more accessible due to several advancements in software (ease of usage -- Keras, PyTorch), hardware(GPU becoming commercially viable for someone like me sitting in India - Not still cheap), availability of data, good books and MOOCs. After completing the 3 most popular MOOCS in deep learning from Fast.ai, deeplearning.ai/Coursera

Fast forward to 2017 I have spent 100's of hours working on Deep learning projects and the technology has become more and more accessible due to several advancements in software(ease of usage -- Keras, PyTorch), hardware(GPU becoming commercially viable for someone like me sitting in India -Not still cheap), availability of data, good books and MOOCS. After completing the 3 most popular MOOCS in deep learning from Fast.ai, deeplearning.ai/Coursera In this post I talk about 5 aspects of each course which will help you decide. I came across this course when reading an article in kddnudgets . For the first time I heard about Jeremy Howard, searched about him in Wikipedia and was impressed .


Practical Deep Learning for Coders 2018 · fast.ai

@machinelearnbot

Last year we announced that we were developing a new deep learning course based on Pytorch (and a new library we have built, called fastai), with the goal of allowing more students to be able to achieve world-class results with deep learning. Today, we are making this course, Practical Deep Learning for Coders 2018, generally available for the first time, following the completion of a preview version of the course by 600 students through our diversity fellowship, international fellowship, and Data Institute in-person programs. The only prerequisites are a year of coding experience, and high school math (math required for understanding the material is introduced as required during the course).


These are the best free Artificial Intelligence educational resources online

Deep learning is not a beginner-friendly subject -- even for experienced software engineers and data scientists. If you've been Googling this subject, you may have been confused by the resources you've come across. To find the best resources, we surveyed engineers on their favorite sources for deep learning, and these are what they recommended. These educational resources include online courses, in-person courses, books, and videos. All are completely free and designed by leading professors, researchers, and industry professionals like Geoffrey Hinton, Yoshua Bengio, and Sebastian Thrun.
