Syllabus

Prerequisite Knowledge

This program has been created specifically for students who are interested in machine learning, AI, and/or deep learning, and who have a working knowledge of Python programming, including NumPy and pandas. Outside of that Python expectation and some familiarity with calculus and linear algebra, it's a beginner-friendly program.See detailed requirements.

  • Introduction

    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.

  • Neural Networks

    Learn neural networks basics, and build your first network with Python and NumPy. Use the modern deep learning framework PyTorch to build multi-layer neural networks, and analyze real data.

    Predicting Bike-Sharing Patterns
  • Convolutional Neural Networks

    Learn how to build convolutional networks and use them to classify images (faces, melanomas, etc.) based on patterns and objects that appear in them. Use these networks to learn data compression and image denoising.

    Dog-Breed Classifier
  • Recurrent Neural Networks

    Build your own recurrent networks and long short-term memory networks with PyTorch; perform sentiment analysis and use recurrent networks to generate new text from TV scripts.

    Generate TV scripts
  • Generative Adversarial Networks

    Learn to understand and implement a Deep Convolutional GAN (generative adversarial network) to generate realistic images, with Ian Goodfellow, the inventor of GANs, and Jun-Yan Zhu, the creator of CycleGANs.

    Generate Faces
  • Deploying a Sentiment Analysis Model

    Train and deploy your own PyTorch sentiment analysis model. Deployment gives you the ability to use a trained model to analyze new, user input. Build a model, deploy it, and create a gateway for accessing it from a website.

    Deploying a Sentiment Analysis Model

Could use a lot of work: not yet worth the money A lot of effort has clearly gone into this course and I believe it may be worthwhile doing at some point, but unfortunately isn't yet worthwhile. The materials are a mix-up of different components merged together and it shows. Some components are extremely...

BEST INTRO TO DEEP LEARNING

BEST INTRO FOR PEOPLE WITH LITTLE OR NO DEEP LEARNING EXPERIENCE

START

The best thing about the course is the first section. It takes a simple prediction problem, "If grades= something, age=something then will X get accepted into university". It applies "common" sense math to

it and after 15 mins you realize - "oh my god!" this is machine learning and better "Neural net". Excellent visuals, good explanation.

MIDDLE

Further sections are standard, good and challenges your understanding and will prove to be beneficial.

There is a section by Andrew Task - that will walk through NN code (by far best NN explanation ever!)

LAST

It wraps up by introducing advanced techniques , GAN, Reinforcement learning etc. but its standard and does not go deep :D (as it is meant for beginners and intermediate alike)

Good Intro for people with Little or no Deep Learning Experience

This ND starts by covering the mathematical foundations of Deep Learning, then moves you through some interesting types of Deep Learning networks and their applications.

The ND uses TensorFlow and Python, which are generally accepted in the field.

This is not a replacement for or a supplement to any kind of graduate-level work in Deep Learning, but at a few hundred dollars, it will at least get you to where you can hold a Deep Learning conversation and make some engineering contributions to work that's going on currently.

This ND does _not_ present a coherent conceptual overview of why the Deep Learning architecture works on the tasks it's good at, mainly because there isn't a good explanation at present; it works, so we use it.

Good stepping stone to a deep learning career.

The lectures are more breadth-focused than depth. Acts as a good introduction to a lot of the deep learning concepts. It is left on the student to explore all the concepts in greater detail, which is mandatory if anyone wants to make a career in this field. The slack channel is an amazing place to communicate with other DL enthusiasts and the office hours with experts gives an insight into how people are actually applying neural nets in research. The projects and mini-projects are the best part of the course as they'll really give your resume a boost if you work hard on them. Overall, highly recommended.

Good starting point for deep learning

This course will teach you all the basics and some advance methods of deep learning. I highly recommend it if you're interested in machine learning in general.

Projects are well designed although a little cookie-cutter. The course uses Python which is easy to learn if you haven't used it before. A bit of knowledge about machine learning helps breeze trough the content and understand more advance concepts, although it's not required.

Good experience overall, but intensive!

It's a great overview of deep learning, with significant project experience in TensorFlow and numpy. My only complaint is that it took much more time each week than initially advertised. The projects were really helpful.

A great way to learn deep learning

The course does a wonderful job of keeping you motivated and helping you along the way. The production quality is second to none, and you learn everything from the ground up.

Best course available out there!

With the new added content deep learning nanodegree can be very powerful in terms of learning. Got a job just one week after graduating from it as a fresher. So much to learn.

Good start point

The course is a good start point in Deep Learning, but I feel that it could have more theory on some topics. It uses TensorFlow in almost all projects.
