About the Course

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....

After completion of this course I know which values to look at if my ML model is not performing up to the task. It is a detailed but not too complicated course to understand the parameters used by ML.

I really enjoyed this course. Many details are given here that are crucial to gain experience and tips on things that looks easy at first sight but are important for a faster ML project implementation

Maybe this course can merge with the 1st one. they both cover too little materials.

WEEK-3 was a little bit messy, it would have been better if it was tensorflow 2

taught concepts well, but the programming assignments felt like it was spoonfed

Good: Contents on Tensor Flow

Bad: No real useful content compared the Course 1.

great lectures, simplistic programming assignements, ridiculously easy tests

It would be better to use TF2 as there are lots of changes in the usages.

Harder to understand. Overall quality is not as good as the first class.

It is a bit abrupt to jump into tensorflow without explaining in depth.

good course to learn, but more assignments should be introduce n week3

voice was too small compared to noises made by clothes and others.

Good courses, the sound quality is very poor (high tone noise).

Interface for evaluating is not great and assignments are easy

The Tensorflow part should have started sooner in the course.

We could have more guidance on setting a tensorflow model

Lots of theory and not enough practical implementation.
