    Get an introduction to deep neural networks, their history and reasons for their popularity in the fields of natural language processing and image recognition.

    Mathematical Foundations

    Learn the basic mathematical foundations required for deep neural networks including problem representation via tensors, tensor operations and gradient descent.

    Case Studies

    Work on a case study based on IMDB ratings and see all required building blocks in action.

    Building Networks with Keras and Tensorflow™

    Get a step-by-step introduction to the deep learning terminology and build your first models from scratch using Keras. See deep neural networks in action applied to text mining and image recognition use cases. Understand the inner workings of Tensorflow and learn for which other general use cases it can be applied. Build your model fitting pipelines and decide for which learning problems it makes sense to apply deep neural networks.

    Infrastructure and Deployment

    Train your networks on high-performance custom GPU instances and select the best one during the model selection process. Learn how to put your models into production using Docker container images. Support the full model development life cycle including performance re-evaluation and model updates.
