Fall/Spring, 3 Credits
Artificial Neural Networks are programs that write themselves when given an objective, some training data, and abundant computing power. Recently, these programs have brought about a wide array of future-like innovations, such as self-driving cars, face recognition, and human-like speech generators. This course offers you an introduction to Deep Artificial Neural Networks (i.e. “Deep Learning”). With focus on both theory and practice, we cover models for various applications, how they are trained and tested, and how they can be deployed in real-world applications.
