This course is about deep learning fundamentals and convolutional neural networks. Convolutional neural networks are one of the most successful deep learning approaches: self-driving cars rely heavily on this algorithm. First you will learn about densly connected neural networks and its problems. The next chapter are about convolutional neural networks: theory as well as implementation in Java with the deeplearning4j library. The last chapters are about recurrent neural networks and the applications!
This is the 3rd part in my Data Science and Machine Learning series on Deep Learning in Python. At this point, you already know a lot about neural networks and deep learning, including not just the basics like backpropagation, but how to improve it using modern techniques like momentum and adaptive learning rates. You've already written deep neural networks in Theano and TensorFlow, and you know how to run code using the GPU. This course is all about how to use deep learning for computer vision using convolutional neural networks. These are the state of the art when it comes to image classification and they beat vanilla deep networks at tasks like MNIST.
About this course: This course will teach you how to build convolutional neural networks and apply it to image data. Thanks to deep learning, computer vision is working far better than just two years ago, and this is enabling numerous exciting applications ranging from safe autonomous driving, to accurate face recognition, to automatic reading of radiology images. You will: - Understand how to build a convolutional neural network, including recent variations such as residual networks. This is the fourth course of the Deep Learning Specialization.
