About the Course

Deep Learning is the go-to technique for many applications, from natural language processing to biomedical. Deep learning can handle many different types of data such as images, texts, voice/sound, graphs and so on. This course will cover the basics of DL including how to build and train multilayer perceptron, convolutional neural networks (CNNs), recurrent neural networks (RNNs), autoencoders (AE) and generative adversarial networks (GANs). The course includes several hands-on projects, including cancer detection with CNNs, RNNs on disaster tweets, and generating dog images with GANs. Prior coding or scripting knowledge is required. We will be utilizing Python extensively throughout the course. We recommend taking the two previous courses in the specialization, Introduction to Machine Learning: Supervised Learning and Unsupervised Algorithms in Machine Learning, but they are not required. College-level math skills, including Calculus and Linear Algebra, are needed. Some parts of the class will be relatively math intensive. This course can be taken for academic credit as part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Data Science (MS-DS) degree offered on the Coursera platform. The MS-DS is an interdisciplinary degree that brings together faculty from CU Boulder’s departments of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Information Science, and others. With performance-based admissions and no application process, the MS-DS is ideal for individuals with a broad range of undergraduate education and/or professional experience in computer science, information science, mathematics, and statistics.

Last course of the machine learning specialization. this is a comprehensive introduction to deep learning, that covers basic topics of DL. But the professor didn’t really do a good job of explaining concepts. The lecture doesn’t help with doing the assignment. I wound’t recommend anyone that is not from the MSDS program to take this course. There are better courses to take on Coursera.

Could this me worse? Few things defined. Uses matricies incorrectly. Labs a waste of time -- just something to waste your time without learning. Just as bad as bad can be. Lectures -- try english. Horrible.
