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

Dear Andrew! Thank you so very much for making me belive in myself as a machine learning engineer. Your lectures & excercises are like "shoulders of Giants" on which a good student can stand out high.

Good introduction to deep learning, and shallow/deep neural networks. The mathematics behind neural networks are fundamental and it's great to see that this course is concentrating in this basics !

The course is well structured and the programming exercises are so detailed, I am going to refer to them in future while implementing neural networks. The best part about the course is, Andrew Ng actually taught the math behind the network. Rather than taking his students through a library function for neural networks in python, he taught his students how to code from scratch while also covering nuances such as suitable activation functions for different cases and ideal values for weights. The documentation for programming exercises is very detailed and must have taken plenty of time for those who worked on it. Recommend it for anyone wanting to start. Kudos to the instructors!

I love the teaching style through this course. The way the professor teaches make all the theory easy to understand and to follow. The assignments provides detailed guidelines to the coding instruction. Basically, it contains the pseudo code already and all you need to do is to transfer them into coding.

This is a very good course for anyone, irrespective of your background, who is interested in becoming a deep learning expert. Andrew Ng really did a good job here. And by the way I sparingly give reviews...

This is the best course I have ever taken about neural network. The hand-by-hand programming practice clarify a lot of questions I got while reading the theoretical materials. Really appreciate all the good design of the course.

Excellent course once again!

I am revising my previous knowledge, and this course it build using python which is really a plus point for the enterprise level implementation of these skills.

Thanks once again.

This course let me know the basic theories and application about Neural Network and Deep Learning . And also inspire me to know about it more and more

Andrew Ng is a fantastic intructor. I admire his teaching style. He pays so much attention to the fundamentals instead of rushing through the material, that I feel like I learned something that will actually stay with me. The homework codes are written beautifully. Introduction of broadcasting and vectorization was an eye opener - turns out I've been programming very inefficiently for years without knowing. This course on it's own is not enough for me to go and architect NNs on my own, but it definitely helps with general understanding of the process, I feel more confident now talking about it and reading papers. Will continue on to other courses in Specialization.
