What you will learn

  1. Learn AI Fundamentals

    3 months to complete

    Learn the essential foundations of AI: the programming tools (Python, NumPy, PyTorch), the math (calculus and linear algebra), and the key techniques of neural networks (gradient descent and backpropagation).

    Prerequisite knowledge

    1. Introduction to Python

      Start coding with Python, drawing upon libraries and automation scripts to solve complex problems quickly.

    2. Jupyter Notebooks, NumPy, Anaconda, pandas, and Matplotlib

      Learn how to use all the key tools for working with data in Python: Jupyter Notebooks, NumPy, Anaconda, pandas, and Matplotlib.

      • Linear Algebra Essentials

        Learn the foundational linear algebra you need for AI success: vectors, linear transformations, and matrices—as well as the linear algebra behind neural networks.

        • Calculus Essentials

          Learn the foundations of calculus to understand how to train a neural network: plotting, derivatives, the chain rule, and more. See how these mathematical skills visually come to life with a neural network example.

          • Neural Networks

            Gain a solid foundation in the hottest fields in AI: neural networks, deep learning, and PyTorch.
