About the Course

If you want to break into cutting-edge AI, this course will help you do so. Deep learning engineers are highly sought after, and mastering deep learning will give you numerous new career opportunities. Deep learning is also a new "superpower" that will let you build AI systems that just weren't possible a few years ago. In this course, you will learn the foundations of deep learning. When you finish this class, you will: - Understand the major technology trends driving Deep Learning - Be able to build, train and apply fully connected deep neural networks - Know how to implement efficient (vectorized) neural networks - Understand the key parameters in a neural network's architecture This course also teaches you how Deep Learning actually works, rather than presenting only a cursory or surface-level description. So after completing it, you will be able to apply deep learning to a your own applications. If you are looking for a job in AI, after this course you will also be able to answer basic interview questions. This is the first course of the Deep Learning Specialization....

This is a very good course for people who want to get started with neural networks. Andrew did a great job explaining the math behind the scenes. Assignments are well-designed too. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed the course but I wished that the equations could have been derived instead of just presented

Very well taught. Specially the coding exercises give confidence to code your own neural network. Also the Heroes of Neural Network segment is very informative featuring Dr. Geoff Hinton and other giants of the field. I feel motivated to complete the full specialization.

I would highly recommend this course for those who don't know much about deep learning and want to step into this area. The course material are well organized and the assignments and projects really helped me with understanding the course video. I am ready to start the next course and dive deeper!

Well structured and develops intuition in subject matter like no other professor or medium has been able to for me personally. Prof. Ng makes learning Deep Learning exciting, and this introductory course has only made me more excited to complete the specialization and get more involved in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning.

Great course! It has the right balance between theory and programming exercises. The subject can be very technical and mathematical, but the instructor explains it in a way that makes it understandable even for those who do not have in-depth calculus knowledge.

Prof. Andrew Ng is the best AI teacher!

The exercises are really helpful for me to get a handle on DNN. Looking forward for the next course.

Another brilliant by Andrew N G. It introduces you to the world of deep learning in a step-by-step. A very carefully artciulated course which presents the overwhelming concepts of Deep Learning in a simplistic manner. Key terms & methodologies used in the world of DL have been introduced & explained. This course truly desmystifies the concept of "Deep Learning". A key higlight is the interviews with the gurus of the Deep Learning world

This whole specialization is incredibly good. I understanding of ANNs is much better after this series than it was after graduate-level coursework on machine learning.

Great introduction to artificial intelligence and more specifically neural networks. The great thing about this course is that it both covers the math behind it (although not too deep), as well as hands on experience in the form of coding neural networks from scratch. Both shallow and deep neural networks are covered. To succeed in the course, you only need to know a little bit about linear algebra and calculus and basic programming in Python.
