Learn Keras with online courses and programs

Keras is a software library used in deep learning. It streamlines neural network creation and enhances AI capabilities. Learn Keras with online courses delivered through edX.

What is Keras?

Keras is a software tool used in machine learning, helping developers make computer programs that can learn from data. These programs, inspired by our brain's workings or neural networks, are especially good at tasks like identifying pictures, understanding language, and making decisions.

Keras simplifies the process of building neural networks by providing a high-level, intuitive interface. It allows users to define neural network architectures using simple and expressive code, abstracting away many of the complex mathematical details that underlie these networks. This makes it accessible to both beginners and experts in the field.Footnote 1

Keras course curriculum

In Keras courses, learners may explore a wide range of topics and skills related to deep learning and neural network development using the Keras framework. Subjects may include:

  • Introduction to deep learning: Start with the basics of deep learning, examining what neural networks are and how they work.

  • Installing and setting up Keras: Find out how to set up the necessary dependencies, using the back-end framework called TensorFlow.

  • Building neural networks: Find out how to design and build neural network architectures using Keras.

  • Training models: Delve into the process of training neural networks, including selecting loss functions, optimizers, and feeding data into the network for training.

  • Data preprocessing: Examine techniques for preparing and preprocessing various types of data (images, text, numerical) to make it suitable for input into neural networks.

Learning about how to use this tool can supplement your knowledge of deep learning and computer science. edX offers a variety of educational opportunities for learners interested in studying these topics, as well as a host of other disciplines. A boot camp can provide flexible hands-on learning for those who want to upskill quickly, while executive education courses are designed for busy professionals. You can also pursue a more comprehensive curriculum in a bachelor’s degree program or, for more advanced learners, a master’s degree program. Find the right learning path for you.
