Graduated - Deep Learning Specialization

A short note to say, I completed Andrew Ng’s Deep Learning Specialization. The course was prepared by DeepLearning.ai and offered on Coursera.

Woot, woot 👍🍾

The specialization is a set of five courses, each of which is ~3-6 weeks.

  1. Neural Networks and Deep Learning

  2. Improving Deep Neural Networks: Hyperparameter tuning, Regularization, and Optimization

  3. Structuring Machine Learning Projects

  4. Convolutional Neural Networks

  5. Sequence Modeling

I liked all the courses, but in particular, I loved #3 (Structuring ML Projects) as it focused on the big picture of machine learning, which is rarely covered anywhere else. And I loved #4 Convolutional Neural Networks, which has some cool and latest projects, such a neural style transfer, semantic segmentation, and more.

My thanks to Andrew Ng and the entire team for a fresh, updated course set. The course is taught in Python with hosted Jupyter Notebooks, which is great because you don’t have to use your laptop or cloud GPUs for training. That’s a big win 👍

Bigger review coming…
