Course Description

Deep learning methods use data to train neural network algorithms to do a variety of machine learning tasks, such as classification of different classes of objects. Convolutional neural networks are deep learning algorithms that are particularly powerful for analysis of images. This course will teach you how to construct, train and evaluate convolutional neural networks. You will also learn how to improve their ability to learn from data, and how to interpret the results of the training.

  1. 1

    Image Processing With Neural Networks


    Convolutional neural networks use the data that is represented in images to learn. In this chapter, we will probe data in images, and we will learn how to use Keras to train a neural network to classify objects that appear in images.

    Going Deeper

    Convolutional neural networks gain a lot of power when they are constructed with multiple layers (deep networks). In this chapter, you will learn how to stack multiple convolutional layers into a deep network. You will also learn how to keep track of the number of parameters, as the network grows, and how to control this number.

    Understanding and Improving Deep Convolutional Networks

    There are many ways to improve training by neural networks. In this chapter, we will focus on our ability to track how well a network is doing, and explore approaches towards improving convolutional neural networks.

What do other learners have to say?

I've used other sites—Coursera, Udacity, things like that—but DataCamp's been the one that I've stuck with.
