What is covered in this course?
This course teaches you all the steps of creating a Neural network based model i.e. a Deep Learning model, to solve business problems.
Below are the course contents of this course on ANN:
Part 1 (Section 2)- Python basics
This part gets you started with Python.
This part will help you set up the python and Jupyter environment on your system and it'll teach you how to perform some basic operations in Python. We will understand the importance of different libraries such as Numpy, Pandas & Seaborn.
Part 2 (Section 3-6) - ANN Theoretical Concepts
This part will give you a solid understanding of concepts involved in Neural Networks.
In this section you will learn about the single cells or Perceptrons and how Perceptrons are stacked to create a network architecture. Once architecture is set, we understand the Gradient descent algorithm to find the minima of a function and learn how this is used to optimize our network model.
Part 3 (Section 7-11) - Creating ANN model in Python
In this part you will learn how to create ANN models in Python.
We will start this section by creating an ANN model using Sequential API to solve a classification problem. We learn how to define network architecture, configure the model and train the model. Then we evaluate the performance of our trained model and use it to predict on new data. Lastly we learn how to save and restore models.
We also understand the importance of libraries such as Keras and TensorFlow in this part.
Part 4 (Section 12) - CNN Theoretical Concepts
In this part you will learn about convolutional and pooling layers which are the building blocks of CNN models.
In this section, we will start with the basic theory of convolutional layer, stride, filters and feature maps. We also explain how gray-scale images are different from colored images. Lastly we discuss pooling layer which bring computational efficiency in our model.
Part 5 (Section 13-14) - Creating CNN model in Python
In this part you will learn how to create CNN models in Python.
We will take the same problem of recognizing fashion objects and apply CNN model to it. We will compare the performance of our CNN model with our ANN model and notice that the accuracy increases by 9-10% when we use CNN. However, this is not the end of it. We can further improve accuracy by using certain techniques which we explore in the next part.
Part 6 (Section 15-18) - End-to-End Image Recognition project in Python
In this section we build a complete image recognition project on colored images.
We take a Kaggle image recognition competition and build CNN model to solve it. With a simple model we achieve nearly 70% accuracy on test set. Then we learn concepts like Data Augmentation and Transfer Learning which help us improve accuracy level from 70% to nearly 97% (as good as the winners of that competition).
By the end of this course, your confidence in creating a Convolutional Neural Network model in Python will soar. You'll have a thorough understanding of how to use CNN to create predictive models and solve image recognition problems.

Below are some popular FAQs of students who want to start their Deep learning journey-
Why use Python for Deep Learning?
Understanding Python is one of the valuable skills needed for a career in Deep Learning.
Though it hasn’t always been, Python is the programming language of choice for data science. Here’s a brief history:
In 2016, it overtook R on Kaggle, the premier platform for data science competitions.
In 2017, it overtook R on KDNuggets’s annual poll of data scientists’ most used tools.
In 2018, 66% of data scientists reported using Python daily, making it the number one tool for analytics professionals.
Deep Learning experts expect this trend to continue with increasing development in the Python ecosystem. And while your journey to learn Python programming may be just beginning, it’s nice to know that employment opportunities are abundant (and growing) as well.
What is the difference between Data Mining, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning?
Put simply, machine learning and data mining use the same algorithms and techniques as data mining, except the kinds of predictions vary. While data mining discovers previously unknown patterns and knowledge, machine learning reproduces known patterns and knowledge—and further automatically applies that information to data, decision-making, and actions.
Deep learning, on the other hand, uses advanced computing power and special types of neural networks and applies them to large amounts of data to learn, understand, and identify complicated patterns. Automatic language translation and medical diagnoses are examples of deep learning.

Please tell us properly regarding the installation. There are tons of errors coming up while installing the modules. Whom should we ask? They have told in detail about the easy things like jup notebook and others whereas no proper talk about a bit complex things
The course explainations and animations of videos are really good. Each step of code was properly explained.
The topics are well divided. The individual steps are reproduced at an appropriate pace and explained in a clear and understandable way. One point of criticism: Only the subtitles are difficult to read, as the sentences are written in poor English. In addition, the sentences are wrongly divided, i.e. no coherent sentences, making them difficult to read and understand.
Fantastic course, I attended Andrew NG course of deep learning on Coursera but this course is more simpler and you grasp concepts easier, highly recommended
This is an elaborate and comprehensive course for a beginner . I recommend this to all those who have hands on experience with Machine Learning and want to go on with Deep Learning. It's a really good start.
This was a good course. The horns beeping in the background was annoying, but the course was very helpful.
The videos are really intuitive, as learning concepts along with the python code impact a lot. Also, the explanation of the python code is done in a better way.
Great Course, the explanations were amazing, everything was thoroughly explained. All over the course met my expectations.
It shows what it promises. But there is a lack of commitment by the team in terms of answering the questions.
A truly amazing intro to CNN and Computer Vision. The way you breakdown the building blocks of ANN and CNN is just spectacular. I enjoy the course
It's a nice course to have a very first taste about ML (Image recognition) and associated software such as Anaconda and Jupyter.
I like it. it is simple and dives into machine learning basics simply and in depth. it is just perfect for a beginner and it was exactly what i was looking for. It would be better is some resources could be added at the end of each lecture for students who are curious about the field so they could get more in depth knowledge this would increase the excellency of the course. thanks so much for providing such a course i will recommend it to my friends and would try to help by adding more indepth articles if i found any to help better understand the details of the course.
A very well explained course, with numerous examples and very easy to follow. It is very recommendable if you want to know the state or art of CNNs : it introduces Keras over Tensorflow 2 to classify images.
This course was amazing. It takes you all the way from the basics all the way up to building your own model. Would highly recommend to anyone trying to learn how to implement CNNs to classification problems. Also, even after finishing the course the Start Tech team were more than happy to help me with any issues I was having with my own personal project and always replied promptly. Great course and teachers.
nice course, actually first i thought this is not sufficient but now i can say the you can apply and definitely will learn something good. also the instructors are very helpful
