## Course Description

## Learn Deep Learning

Deep learning is a rapidly evolving field of artificial intelligence that revolutionized the field of machine learning, enabling breakthroughs in areas such as computer vision, natural language processing, and speech recognition. The most recent advances in Generative AI, including image generators and conversational chatbots, have brought deep machine learning models to the public spotlight. Start learning about how deep learning works and how to train deep models yourself today.## Use PyTorch, the Most Pythonic Way to Do Deep Learning

PyTorch is a powerful and flexible deep learning framework that allows researchers and practitioners to build and train neural networks with ease. Loved by Pythonistas around the world, PyTorch offers a lot of flexibility and an intuitive way to implement deep learning concepts.## Train Robust Deep Learning Models

This course in deep learning with PyTorch is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental concepts and techniques of deep learning, and equip you with the practical skills to implement various neural network concepts. You’ll get to grips with multi-input and multi-output architectures. You’ll learn how to prevent the vanishing and exploding gradients problems using non-saturating activations, batch normalization, and proper weights initialization. You will be able to alleviate overfitting using regularization and dropout. Finally, you will know how to accelerate the training process with learning rate scheduling.## Build Image and Sequence Models

You get to know two specialized neural network architectures: Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) for image data and Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) for sequential data such as time series or text. You will understand their advantages and will be able to implement them in image classification and time series prediction tasks.By the end of the course, you will have the knowledge and confidence to robustly train and evaluate your own deep learning models for a range of applications.
