Deep Learning: A Hands-On Approach

Saturday, April 3, 2021 until Saturday, April 17, 2021


This three week online experience will enable you to articulate concepts, algorithms, and tools to build intelligent systems while formulating various supervised and unsupervised learning models.

You’ll be able to apply practical skill sets on designing, deploying, and analyzing deep network architectures on complex real-world problems.

Program topics include big data preprocessing and handling, deep neural network design and optimization, image classification with convolutional neural nets, sequence modeling with recurrent neural nets, generative learning with generative adversarial nets, and deploying deep learning models to scale. 

Upon submission of this registration form, you will receive a confirmation email that includes instructions for submitting payment of the $950 registration fee.
