About the Course

In the fifth course of the Deep Learning Specialization, you will become familiar with NLP models and their exciting applications such as speech recognition, music synthesis, chatbots, machine translation, natural language understanding, and more that have become possible with the evolution of sequence algorithms thanks to deep learning. By the end, you will be able to build and train Recurrent Neural Networks and commonly-used variants such as GRUs and LSTMs; apply RNNs to Character-level Language Modeling; gain experience with natural language processing and Word Embeddings; and use HuggingFace tokenizers and transformer models to solve different NLP tasks such as NER and Question Answering. DeepLearning.AI is proud to partner with NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) to provide a programming assignment on Machine Translation with Deep Learning. Get an opportunity to build a deep learning project with leading-edge techniques using industry-relevant use cases. The Deep Learning Specialization is our foundational program that will help you understand the capabilities, challenges, and consequences of deep learning and prepare you to participate in the development of leading-edge AI technology. It provides a pathway for you to gain the knowledge and skills to apply machine learning to your work, level up your technical career, and take the definitive step in the world of AI....

It was a great learning experience. Thanks Andrew Ng for the wonderful content. However, there are still some mistakes in the programming assignment such as in the expected output of 3rd assignment. Kindly correct it. Overall very satisfying!

It's an amazing course, the video lectures are fruitful and the contents of the courses are well designed, the instructor is talented and his explanations are extremely helpful, it's one of the best courses taught on keras!

Thank you so much!

Great course! I feel some great accomplishment having finished this specialization I began 2 months ago. This one course could use a bit more of Keras hints or optional Keras course for those who do not have a regular use of the framework.

This course is great if you want to know about sequence models for areas like nlp and speech recognition. They provide assignments that is solvable and their forum is active, and you can always find people solved your confuse on assignments.

The video lectures are awesome. But the project is too fast-paced. I feel I am just following the instruction and keras doc, instead of understanding how keras works. Testing me how to create dict in Python didn't make me feel happy. Thanks!

I think considering the other courses, Sequence Model course was a little bit faster and it covered a lot of topics, so it was a little tough to keep up. But what I learnt was quite a lot and I think it is is quit a very good course indeed.

Great course: material, instructor, assignments, everything! Perfect way to introduce or consolidate your knowledge in recurrent neural networks to model sequence data with a really strong component of direct industry-relevant application.

Well structured and easy to comprehend.

Mr Andrew Ng and team has organised the course in the best way.

Through this course I get new theory and programming experience for my self.

The exercise is fun like naming dinosaur

Thanks after all

Feels great to complete this wonderful journey. Once again thank you Andrew Sir for creating this type of novel courses, great to have you as an instructor. Hope I someday would build a great model of my own, and get a chance to meet you!

Very good, by necessity it's a little hand-holdey but otherwise it would take an unreasonable amount of time to cover the material. Hopefully I'll be able to leverage the background i gained in the specialization in future job experience.

Excellent Overview of Deep Learning. I did a PhD in AI 30 years ago and this was a great introduction to the latest research. I highly recommend to beginners and old timers like me to get up to date on the latest research and techniques.

This course give me opportunities to dive in to RNN and other architectures relating to NLP. Although it is a little bit tougher than 4 previous courses (in this specialization), it provides several interesting applications in real life.

Andrew Ng does an excellent job of explaining and teaching various sequence models in a format that any layman can understand. I really enjoyed this course and look forward to taking more corses with Mr. Ng and his staff in the future.

¡Excelente curso! Llegar hasta acá haciendo la especialización vale el esfuerzo. Andrew Ng como siempre un gran maestro.

Excellent course! Getting here doing the specialization is worth the effort. Andrew Ng as always a great teacher.

the course is really well made, just enough theory and lots of practical labs. Although it does not go deep in the theoretical explanation, it develops intuition and triggers a curiosity to go further and continue to learn.

My only constructive criticism is: more difficult homework, or more homework in general. The programming assignments seem very important for internalizing concepts, and this course covers a lot of material in a short period of time.

It wasn't easy to finish. Comparatively 3 weeks only, but the content is hard. Compared to Computer Vision techniques, NLP techniques are harder to develop an intuition around. But a great learning experience. Interesting projects.

Every course with Andrew is worth it. He is great at explaining details and providing examples even for quite complex topics.

The most useful thing for me in Andrew's are programming assignments. I enjoyed them immensely, thank you!

A very good course on Sequence Models starting from the basics to designing a trigger word detection model. I will surely recommend the course if you are a deep learning enthusiast or you want to brush up your skills in this field.

Excellent material; though VERY dense. Notebooks still have some issues, but forums are really helpful. I feel that first 3 courses were much better prepared; though CNNs/RNNs are still super-useful despite not being 100% polished.

Really funny section about sequence model with interesting examples, helping me to understand how to learn the pattern of sequence data and transfer it to useful information. arouse my curiosity about other application in this area
