Course Description

deep learning Awards Best Crash Course

Deep learning is a revolutionary technique for discovering patterns from data. We'll see how this technology works and what it offers us for computer graphics. Attendees learn how to use these tools to power their own creative and practical investigations and applications.



    • Video has a sense of humor which is great for de-stressing a long session on deep topics.
    • Course does a great job of covering legitimate applications, helping students to understand where to take their knowledge for future development.
    • Despite the video length, the course is surprisingly succinct.
    • One video is not enough to thoroughly cover deep learning. It’s a big topic.
    • Course is severely lacking in supplemental information.
    • Course is really just a recording of lectures, minus the resources used in the lectures.

Thank you so much! It helped me get a general idea about the basic ideas of deep learning.

Excellent talk!This Course inspired me to buy the books and continue learning with this outstanding teacher.

Loved the convulsion explanation and the face explanation. So clear, so simple to understand.

Such a great talk! And thanks, for 'rescuing' the real neurons from the machine learning society...

Definitely one of the best lectures on Deep Learning. Andrew's teaching style and delivery makes this otherwise hard subject so easy to understand. The concepts are so clearly explained that even the first time audience can grasp the bulk of it if not all.

Great content, awesome explanations, just the right tempo and a brilliant orator. The most awesome introduction that I stumbled upon.
