Build Deep Learning Algorithms with TensorFlow 2.0, Dive into Neural Networks and Apply Your Skills in a Business Case

Data scientists, machine learning engineers, and AI researchers all have their own skillsets. But what is that one special thing they have in common?

They are all masters of deep learning.

We often hear about AI, or self-driving cars, or the ‘algorithmic magic’ at Google, Facebook, and Amazon. But it is not magic – it is deep learning. And more specifically, it is usually deep neural networks – the one algorithm to rule them all.

Cool, that sounds like a really important skill; how do I become a Master of Deep Learning?

There are two routes you can take:

The unguided route – This route will get you where you want to go, eventually, but expect to get lost a few times. If you are looking at this course you’ve maybe been there.

The 365 route – Consider our route as the guided tour. We will take you to all the places you need, using the paths only the most experienced tour guides know about. We have extra knowledge you won’t get from reading those information boards and we give you this knowledge in fun and easy-to-digest methods to make sure it really sticks.

Clearly, you can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk? – What exactly will I get out of this course that I can’t get anywhere else?

Good question! We know how interesting Deep Learning is and we love it! However, we know that the goal here is career progression, that’s why our course is business focused and gives you real world practice on how to use Deep Learning to optimize business performance.

We don’t just scratch the surface either – It’s not called ‘Skin-Deep’ Learning after all. We fully explain the theory from the mathematics behind the algorithms to the state-of-the-art initialization methods, plus so much more.

Theory is no good without putting it into practice, is it? That’s why we give you plenty of opportunities to put this theory to use. Implement cutting edge optimizations, get hands on with TensorFlow and even build your very own algorithm and put it through training!

Wow, that’s going to look great on your resume!

Speaking of resumes, you also get a certificate upon completion which employers can verify that you have successfully finished a prestigious 365 Careers course – and one of our best at that!

Now, I can see you’re bragging a little, but I admit you have peaked my interest. What else does your course offer that will make my resume shine?

Trust us, after this course you’ll be able to fill your resume with skills and have plenty left over to show off at the interview.

  • Of course, you’ll get fully acquainted with Google’ TensorFlow and NumPy, two tools essential for creating and understanding Deep Learning algorithms.
  • Explore layers, their building blocks and activations – sigmoid, tanh, ReLu, softmax, etc.
  • Understand the backpropagation process, intuitively and mathematically.
  • You’ll be able to spot and prevent overfitting – one of the biggest issues in machine and deep learning
  • Get to know the state-of-the-art initialization methods. Don’t know what initialization is? We explain that, too
  • Learn how to build deep neural networks using real data, implemented by real companies in the real world. TEMPLATES included!
  • Also, I don’t know if we’ve mentioned this, but you will have created your very own Deep Learning Algorithm after only 1 hour of the course.
  • It’s this hands-on experience that will really make your resume stand out
