Learn neural networks basics, and build your first network with Python and NumPy. Use the modern deep learning framework PyTorch to build multi-layer neural networks, and analyze real data.Predicting Bike-Sharing Patterns
Learn how to build convolutional networks and use them to classify images (faces, melanomas, etc.) based on patterns and objects that appear in them. Use these networks to learn data compression and image denoising.Dog-Breed Classifier
Build your own recurrent networks and long short-term memory networks with PyTorch; perform sentiment analysis and use recurrent networks to generate new text from TV scripts.Generate TV scripts
Learn to understand and implement a Deep Convolutional GAN (generative adversarial network) to generate realistic images, with Ian Goodfellow, the inventor of GANs, and Jun-Yan Zhu, the creator of CycleGANs.Generate Faces
Train and deploy your own PyTorch sentiment analysis model. Deployment gives you the ability to use a trained model to analyze new, user input. Build a model, deploy it, and create a gateway for accessing it from a website.Deploying a Sentiment Analysis Model

The Deep Learning Nanodegree helped me regain a lot of confidence in myself. The course structure is detailed and covers almost all of the essential topics in Deep Learning. The projects play a pivotal role in the application of the skills you learned and makes you feel ready to tackle the real world challenges.
This program treats up-to-data techniques of deep learning. It has matched my needs and expectations by providing lectures about CNN, RNN, and GAN concepts.
Deep Learning is fascinating with applications across industries, and learning all the relevant stuff and applying that knowledge on various projects has provided a way for me to bootstrap my entry into this field. Thanks to Udacity! I have started to love math even more now :)
Had wonderful experience with interesting set of projects to work on! This program has helped to understand the fundamentals and as well to work on amazing projects with great feedback anf insights from the project reviewers.
Learn to build the deep learning models that are revolutionizing artificial intelligence.
In this program, you’ll master deep learning fundamentals that will prepare you to launch or advance a career, and additionally pursue further advanced studies in the field of artificial intelligence. You will study cutting-edge topics such as neural, convolutional, recurrent neural, and generative adversarial networks, as well as sentiment analysis model deployment. You will build projects in Keras and NumPy, in addition to TensorFlow PyTorch. You will learn from experts in the field, and gain exclusive insights from working professionals. For anyone interested in building expertise with this transformational technology, this Nanodegree program is an ideal point-of-entry.
This program is designed to build on your skills in deep learning. As such, it doesn't prepare you for a specific job, but expands your skills in the deep learning domain. These skills can be applied to various applications and also qualify you to pursue further studies in the field.
If you are interested in the fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning, this Nanodegree program is the perfect way to get started!
No. This Nanodegree program accepts all applicants regardless of experience and specific background.
Students who are interested in enrolling must have intermediate-level Python programming knowledge, and experience with NumPy and pandas. You will need to be able to communicate fluently and professionally in written and spoken English. Additionally, students must have the necessary math knowledge, including: algebra and some calculus—specifically partial derivatives, and matrix multiplication (linear algebra).
We have a number of Nanodegree programs and free courses that can help you prepare, including:
The Deep Learning Nanodegree program is comprised of one (1) Term of four (4) months. A Term has fixed start and end dates.
To graduate, students must successfully complete five (5) projects, each of which affords you the opportunity to apply and demonstrate new skills that you learn in the lessons. Each project will be reviewed by the Udacity reviewer network. Feedback will be provided and if you do not pass the project, you will be asked to resubmit the project until it passes.
Please see the Udacity Nanodegree program FAQs found here for policies on enrollment in our programs.
Graduates from this Nanodegree program earn guaranteed admitted status into our more advanced Self-Driving Car Engineer or Flying Car Nanodegree programs, subject to payment by student for the cost of enrollment for those Nanodegree programs.
Some Nanodegree programs, due to the complexity of the material, require prerequisites and/or an application process to ensure that students who enroll are qualified to meet the demands of the course. However, in those instances where students have graduated from other Udacity courses that we feel adequately prepare them for our more advanced courses, we will guarantee that they will be allowed to enroll subject to paying the Nanodegree program fees.
Virtually any 64-bit operating with at least 8GB of RAM will be suitable. Students should also have Python 3 and Jupyter Notebooks installed. For the more intensive portions of the program that come later, we will be providing students with AWS instances where geographically possible.
