About this course

Deep learning allows machines to solve relatively complex problems even when using data that is diverse, less structured or interdependent. Deep learning is a form of machine learning that is inspired and modeled on how the human brain works. In this course you will be introduced to the basics of deep learning and learn how it compares to other techniques. During the course you will also understand the applications of deep learning in various fields and learn more about different frameworks used for neural networks.

Bank Customer Churn Modeling

Many banks are eternally concerned about their customers discontinuing the service and switching over to competitors. This drop-out is a major phenomenon in several service-based industries and it is called as ‘Churn’. The objective of this project is to build a classifier which can determine whether the customers will leave or not using Neural networks
