The applications of Deep Learning are many, and constantly growing, just like the neural networks that it supports. In this course, you'll delve into advanced concepts of Deep Learning, starting with the basics of TensorFlow and Theano, understanding how to build neural networks with these popular tools. Using these tools, you'll learn how to build and understand a neural network, knowing exactly how to visualize what is happening within a model as it learns.

- Access 23 lectures & 3 hours of programming 24/7
- Discover batch & stochastic gradient descent, two techniques that allow you to train on a small sample of data at each iteration, greatly speeding up training time
- Discuss how momentum can carry you through local minima
- Learn adaptive learning rate techniques like AdaGrad & RMSprop
- Explore dropout regularization & other modern neural network techniques
- Understand the variables & expressions of TensorFlow & Theano
- Set up a GPU-instance on AWS & compare the speed of CPU vs GPU for training a deep neural network
- Look at the MNIST dataset & compare against known benchmarks
The Lazy Programmer is a data scientist, big data engineer, and full stack software engineer. For his master's thesis he worked on brain-computer interfaces using machine learning. These assist non-verbal and non-mobile persons to communicate with their family and caregivers.
He has worked in online advertising and digital media as both a data scientist and big data engineer, and built various high-throughput web services around said data. He has created new big data pipelines using Hadoop/Pig/MapReduce, and created machine learning models to predict click-through rate, news feed recommender systems using linear regression, Bayesian Bandits, and collaborative filtering and validated the results using A/B testing.
He has taught undergraduate and graduate students in data science, statistics, machine learning, algorithms, calculus, computer graphics, and physics for students attending universities such as Columbia University, NYU, Humber College, and The New School.
