About this course

Skip About this course
Looking to kickstart a career in deep learning? Look no further. This course will introduce you to the field of deep learning and teach you the fundamentals. You will learn about some of the exciting applications of deep learning, the basics fo neural networks, different deep learning models, and how to build your first deep learning model using the easy yet powerful library Keras. 

This course will present simplified explanations to some of today's hottest topics in data science, including: 
  • What is deep learning?
  • How do neural networks learn and what are activation functions?
  • What are deep learning libraries and how do they compare to one another?
  • What are supervised and unsupervised deep learning models?
  • How to use Keras to build, train, and test deep learning models?
The demand for deep learning skills-- and the job salaries of deep learning practitioners -- are continuing to grow, as AI becomes more pervasive in our societies. This course will help you build the knowledge you need to future-proof your career.

Who can take this course?

Unfortunately, learners from one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. EdX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
