This Nanodegree trains the learner about foundational topics in the exciting field of deep learning, the technology behind state-of-the-art artificial intelligence.


  • Introduction to Deep Learning
    • This course covers foundational deep learning theory and practice. We begin with how to think about deep learning and when it is the right tool to use. The course covers the fundamental algorithms of deep learning, deep learning architecture and goals, and interweaves the theory with implementation in PyTorch.
  • Convolutional Neural Networks
    • This course introduces Convolutional Neural Networks, the most widely used type of neural networks specialized in image processing. You will learn the main characteristics of CNNs that make them so useful for image processing, their inner workings, and how to build them from scratch to complete image classification tasks. You will learn what are the most successful CNN architectures, and what are their main characteristics. You will apply these architectures to custom datasets using transfer learning. You will also learn about autoencoders, a very important architecture at the basis of many modern CNNs, and how to use them for anomaly detection as well as image denoising. Finally, you will learn how to use CNNs for object detection and semantic segmentation.
  • RNNs and Transformers
    • This course covers multiple RNN architectures and discusses design patterns for those models. You'll also learn about transformer architectures.
  • Building 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.

    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 me…
  • I am a Mentor for this course. I find this course one of the best courses in the internet. It is the only course that is provided from Facebook, which is the main contributor of the PyTorch. It has a lot of notebooks and videos to learn with visualizations. The deep learning is in its whole spectrum with computer vision, nlp and machine learning projects, that shows the big change it brought to these domains.
  • 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.

    This course helps in improving your understanding. The projects are designed to feel the taste of real-time scenarios. This definitely helps you to practice more and more, till you reach a level of expertise.

    The program is great. It teaches deep learning from scratch.

    The most exciting part is that you do feel equipped with the skills and techniques covered when you proceed. The project review is awesome. You can see the thorough review in detail. It renews the knowledge learned and properly bridges the complex concept to code implementation.

    In addition, we can see additional resources mentioned in the feedback. That's really informative. Thanks and really appreciate that.

    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.
