Overview

This course will teach you the "magic" of getting deep learning to work well. Rather than the deep learning process being a black box, you will understand what drives performance, and be able to more systematically get good results. You will also learn TensorFlow.

After 3 weeks, you will:
- Understand industry best-practices for building deep learning applications.
- Be able to effectively use the common neural network "tricks", including initialization, L2 and dropout regularization, Batch normalization, gradient checking,
- Be able to implement and apply a variety of optimization algorithms, such as mini-batch gradient descent, Momentum, RMSprop and Adam, and check for their convergence.
- Understand new best-practices for the deep learning era of how to set up train/dev/test sets and analyze bias/variance
- Be able to implement a neural network in TensorFlow.

This is the second course of the Deep Learning Specialization.

Raivis completed this course, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
A good look at most important parameters that impact DL models. Again it is math heavy, but it' s ok to just understand basic logic behind it. Has some TensorFlow practical tasks, which are easy to complete, but you may wish to read up on TF on your own to understand how it works in general, especially if you have used other DLK framework before - like PyTorch, for example.

I finished this second deep learning course and I like it very much. I am looking forward for more courses in this deep learning series. Andrew is doing a great job here.

This is a follow up course to Neural Networks and Deep Learning so you must start with the latter. The practical side of the teaching was very interesting.
