Introduction to Neural Networks and Deep Learning

A deep learning algorithm is given massive volumes of data, typically unstructured and disparate, and a task to perform such as classification. The resulting model is then capable of solving such complex tasks such as recognizing objects within an image and translating speech in real time.

Three major drivers caused the breakthrough of (deep) neural networks: the availability of huge amounts of training data, powerful computational infrastructure, and advances in academia. Thereby deep learning systems start to outperform not only classical methods, but also human benchmarks in various tasks like image classification or face recognition. This creates the potential for many disruptive new businesses leveraging deep learning to solve real-world problems.

In this course you will learn what is deep learning and why it is needed. During the course you will also understand the applications of deep learning in various fields and learn more about different frameworks for neural networks.
