Deep Learning Certificate Part I

Part I of the Certificate in Deep Learning, taught by Distinguished Scholar Jeremy Howard, aims to make deep learning accessible to the widest capable audience. The goal of this seven-week, 100% in-person program is to provide a rich understanding of the foundations, applications, and future directions of deep learning. This knowledge will allow participants to build new deep learning models, apply and fine-tune pre-trained models, and develop, implement, and test new algorithms and architectures.

Suggested prerequisites or prior experience include one of the following:

  • 1+ years working in a coding-based position
  • 2+ years studying computer science at the university level
  • completion of a data science or programming boot camp plus 6+ months work experience
  • significant open source coding experience for 1+ years

Familiarity with:

  • Linear Algebra: matrix product, matrix inverse, orthogonal matrices
  • Calculus: basic differentiation and the chain rule
