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 - Python and R 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 - 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 - Creating Regression and Classification ANN model in Python and R

    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. We also solve a regression problem in which we try to predict house prices in a location. We will also cover how to create complex ANN architectures using functional API. 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 - Data Preprocessing

    In this part you will learn what actions you need to take to prepare Data for the analysis, these steps are very important for creating a meaningful.

    In this section, we will start with the basic theory of decision tree then we cover data pre-processing topics like  missing value imputation, variable transformation and Test-Train split.

By the end of this course, your confidence in creating a Neural Network model in Python will soar. You'll have a thorough understanding of how to use ANN to create predictive models and solve business 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.

The accent is very difficult to understand, but the subtitles help. I would suggest for your next courses, to better segregate the code you are showing, with comments, to easen the comprehension
June 19, 2022
Seriously, half the course how to install python and anaconda? Is that what the course is called? Neural networks have nothing to do with installing Python. The second moment Threshhold. There is no thrashhold there. what the hell? What do you teach?
May 24, 2022
Very thorough teaching with thoughtful consideration in place for those who are new to neural networks

El curso hasta ahora va bien, yo no soy nativo hablante de ingles, pero me parece bastante clara la forma de explicar
April 5, 2022
Good for beginners to get brief idea on ANN and how to implement it using python and R. Personally would have loved if it had covered more examples and assignment problems.
June 19, 2021
En mi dispositivo android (fire tv 7, modelo 2017) no puedo descargar la app desde play store. La unica opcion es ver desde el navegador. El reproductor no oculta el control de playback ni el titulo, lo que resulta molesto y entorpece la vision
April 11, 2021
great course that covers all aspects and works well for even complete beginners. Explains theory very well and even data analysis is explained properly
February 18, 2021
The course is amazing. It starts with a scratch with the basics of python and R. Then step by step the instructor takes you to implementation of ANN and also other topics like hyperparameter tuning and data preprocessing is done.
