About the Course

The goal of this course is to give learners basic understanding of modern neural networks and their applications in computer vision and natural language understanding. The course starts with a recap of linear models and discussion of stochastic optimization methods that are crucial for training deep neural networks. Learners will study all popular building blocks of neural networks including fully connected layers, convolutional and recurrent layers. Learners will use these building blocks to define complex modern architectures in TensorFlow and Keras frameworks. In the course project learner will implement deep neural network for the task of image captioning which solves the problem of giving a text description for an input image. The prerequisites for this course are: 1) Basic knowledge of Python. 2) Basic linear algebra and probability. Please note that this is an advanced course and we assume basic knowledge of machine learning. You should understand: 1) Linear regression: mean squared error, analytical solution. 2) Logistic regression: model, cross-entropy loss, class probability estimation. 3) Gradient descent for linear models. Derivatives of MSE and cross-entropy loss functions. 4) The problem of overfitting. 5) Regularization for linear models. Do you have technical problems? Write to us: coursera@hse.ru...

one of the excellent courses in deep learning. As stated its advanced and enjoyed a lot in solving the assignments. looking forward for more such courses especially in Natural language processing

A very good course and it is truly insightful. This course deals with more on the concepts therefore I have a better understanding of what is really happening when I build deep learning models.

Notebooks are lacking explanations and lecturers do not have a good Ensglish accent. Otherwise, great and challenging content

This course is not a deep learning introduction. The assignments are challenged and well organized, specially, the last one.

The peer review is slightly problematic since there is no check on whether the grader is doing the grading properly or not

All in all, material is quite good. Programming assignments are interesting but way too easy, even the final project.

Could you please provide the slides/ppt ? It's necessary for reviewing again and again. Video is not as convenient.

Nice course. leaarned the inner workings of neural networks. Though I felt some lack in teaching actual coding part.

Tell more about TensorFlow and Keras. It was hard to finish final project due to lack of the knowledge in that area.

Lecture delivery can be improved. Content is great but may be important to break the difficult concepts even further

It is very good although there are some problems to run some assignments due to be too heavy computationally.

Interesting content but some videos do not explain the topics well enough and some extra study is needed.

This class is great! A few professors are hard to understand but it's still OK. The homework is helpful.

Many interesting things! One note: some exercises and topics are too complex (like RNN for example).

c'est terrible que la version du Keras est désactualizé, mais le cours est tellement bien!

Amazing content.But notebooks need to be updated.

Actually requires good python knowledge
