 with  Nikita Kazeev, Andrei Zimovnov, Alexander Panin, Evgeny Sokolov and Ekaterina Lobacheva
Sponsored
Data Analytics Certificate
Cornell University via eCornell
The goal of this course is to give learners basic understanding of modern neural networks and their applications in computer vision and natural language understanding. The course starts with a recap of linear models and discussion of stochastic optimization methods that are crucial for training deep neural networks. Learners will study all popular building blocks of neural networks including fully connected layers, convolutional and recurrent layers.
Learners will use these building blocks to define complex modern architectures in TensorFlow and Keras frameworks. In the course project learner will implement deep neural network for the task of image captioning which solves the problem of giving a text description for an input image.

The prerequisites for this course are:
1) Basic knowledge of Python.
2) Basic linear algebra and probability.

Please note that this is an advanced course and we assume basic knowledge of machine learning. You should understand:
1) Linear regression: mean squared error, analytical solution.
2) Logistic regression: model, cross-entropy loss, class probability estimation.
3) Gradient descent for linear models. Derivatives of MSE and cross-entropy loss functions.
4) The problem of overfitting.
5) Regularization for linear models.

Syllabus

Introduction to optimization
Welcome to the "Introduction to Deep Learning" course! In the first week you'll learn about linear models and stochatic optimization methods. Linear models are basic building blocks for many deep architectures, and stochastic optimization is used to learn every model that we'll discuss in our course.

Introduction to neural networks
This module is an introduction to the concept of a deep neural network. You'll begin with the linear model in numpy and finish with writing your very first deep network.

Deep Learning for images
In this week you will learn about building blocks of deep learning for image input. You will learn how to build Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) architectures with these blocks and how to quickly solve a new task using so-called pre-trained models.

Unsupervised representation learning
This week we're gonna dive into unsupervised parts of deep learning. You'll learn how to generate, morph and search images with deep learning.

Deep learning for sequences
In this week you will learn how to use deep learning for sequences such as texts, video, audio, etc. You will learn about several Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) architectures and how to apply them for different tasks with sequential input/output.

Final Project
In this week you will apply all your knowledge about neural networks for images and texts for the final project. You will solve the task of generating descriptions for real world images!

What are MOOCs?
MOOCs stand for Massive Open Online Courses. These are free online courses from universities around the world (eg. Stanford Harvard MIT) offered to anyone with an internet connection.
How do I register?
To register for a course, click on "Go to Class" button on the course page. This will take you to the providers website where you can register for the course.
How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you.  They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
