This program has been created specifically for students who are interested in machine learning, AI, and/or deep learning, and who have a working knowledge of Python programming, including NumPy and pandas. Outside of that Python expectation and some familiarity with calculus and linear algebra, it's a beginner-friendly program.See detailed requirements.
Get your first taste of deep learning by applying style transfer to your own images, and gain experience using development tools such as Anaconda and Jupyter notebooks.
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 program is great and very good support from mentor. Happy so far and meets my expectations.
Overall, this is a very strong program. The instructors manage to cover a lot of material while still providing enough depth. The projects are quite challenging and very much hands-on. Considering the breadth of the subject of the Deep Learning and the time constraints (3 months), I think this is as good as it gets. So yes, I do recommend it.
The course is very interesting, state-of-the-art and absolutely matched my expectations. I enjoy it very much. At this moment I have a little delay since I take another nanodegree in parallel but I think I can get over it soon.
yes, I am loving the nanodegree.
I really liked it and learned a lot. The quality of this program is very high.

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 content and curriculum to support five (5) projects. We estimate that students can complete the program in four (4) months working 10 hours per week.
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 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.
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.
