4.3 Neural Network Learning (Backpropagation)

Course video 16 of 21

The module “Basics of Deep Learning Neural Networks” first focuses on explaining the technical differences of AI (Artificial Intelligence), ML (Machine Learning), and DL (Deep Learning) in the first lecture titled “What is DL (Deep Learning) and ML (Machine Learning).” In addition, the characteristics of CPUs (Central Processing Units) and GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) used in DL as well as the representative computer performance units of FLOPS (FLoating-Point Operations Per Second) and IPS (Instructions Per Second) are introduced. Next, in the NN (Neural Network) lecture, the biological neuron (nerve cell) and its signal transfer is introduced followed by an ANN (Artificial Neural Network) model of a neuron based on a threshold logic unit and soft output activation functions is introduced. Then the extended NN technologies that uses MLP (Multi-Layer Perceptron), SoftMax, and AutoEncoder are explained. In the last lecture of the module, NN learning based on backpropagation is introduced along with the learning method types, which include supervised learning, unsupervised learning, semi-supervised learning, and reinforcement learning.
