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....

Very good course to start Deep learning. But you need to have the basic idea first. I would suggest to do the Stanford Andrew Ng Machine Learning course first and then take this specialization courses

I would love some pointers to additional references for each video. Also, the instructor keeps saying that the math behind backprop is hard. What about an optional video with that? Otherwise, awesome!

Excellent Tutor.

A simple but solid introduction to deep learning. If you have a solid technical background, it won't take anywhere close to four weeks of study/work to complete. You won't be ready to use deep learning in meaningful ways on your own, but you will be well-equipped to continue exploring and learning, either through further courses in the specialization on Coursera, or on your own.

The course is well established and the content is easy to understand. I love the assignments as they are very interesting as well as intuitive.

Perfect course for someone who wants to get a good idea of neural networks. The instructor is really good and it is obvious that he has devoted much time to make the assignments such as you can get the most out of them.

Very good course !

The course takes a very direct approach to building your first neural network. It has very little maths, and the coding is extremely simplified in the assignments. For someone with a little bit of background, it wouldn't take more than a couple hours to be done with the course and running your first multi-layer model. If you have prior knowledge of NNs, machine learning, or calculus and vectorization, the course could feel a bit tedious. In this case, I'd recommend running the videos at 1.5x or 2x speed .

My only gripe is the quality of the audio. It could have been much better.

Good course that explores the core of logistic regression networks, small and deep. I like that it is in python and uses numpy.

Very good and very useful! This course helped me to improve my understanding of neural networks and improve knowledge and organize materials in my mind. Thank you!

This was a great start to the Deep Learning Nano Degree. I learnt the basic working of Neural Networks and also tried some examples on my own. This course is a huge helper to graduate students to me who wants to give a try to neural Networks. Great share of Learning about Deep Learning. Dr. Ng is simply amazing. One suggestion would be improving the grading methods.

Strongly recommend for ones who start getting in the field of deep learning from whatever discipline!

Really interesting and accessible grounding in the basics, some of the learning from which I've been able to apply immediately in the workplace.
