Introduction to Neural Networks with TensorFlow

Course

Learn the fundamentals of neural networks with Python and TensorFlow, and then use your new skills to create your own image classifier—an application that will first train a deep learning model on a dataset of images and then use the trained model to classify new images.

Course Lessons

Lesson 1

Course Introduction

Meet your instructors, get a short overview of what you'll be learning, check your prerequisites, and learn how to use the workspaces and notebooks found throughout the lessons.

Lesson 2

Introduction to Neural Networks

In this lesson, Luis will give you solid foundations on deep learning and neural networks. You'll also implement gradient descent and backpropagation in Python right here in the classroom.

Lesson 3

Implementing Gradient Descent

Mat will introduce you to a different error function and guide you through implementing gradient descent using numpy matrix multiplication.

Lesson 4

Training Neural Networks

Now that you know what neural networks are, in this lesson you will learn several techniques to improve their training.

Lesson 5

Deep Learning with TensorFlow

Learn how to use TensorFlow for building deep learning models.

Lesson 6 • Project

Image Classifier Project

In this project, you'll build a Python application that can train an image classifier on a dataset, then predict new images using the trained model.
