Machine learning is one of the fastest-growing and most exciting fields out there, and deep learning represents its true bleeding edge. In this course, you’ll get an overview of what deep learning is all about.

Partnering with Vincent Vanhoucke, Principal Scientist at Google, and technical lead in the Google Brain team, we’ll teach you how deep learning builds on machine learning. Then you’ll get a chance to learn more about deep neural networks and advanced architectures such as convolutional networks and recurrent networks.

And if you’d like to dive even deeper into this cutting-edge field, we recommend that you continue your studies with our full-fledged Deep Learning Nanodegree program to get more hands-on experience.
