Deep Learning Certificate Part II

This course follows on from (and requires completion of) part 1 (and the associated MOOC). It tackles more complex problems that require integrating a number of techniques. This includes both integrating multiple deep learning techniques , as well as combining classic machine learning techniques with deep learning. All methods will be introduced in the context of solving end-to-end real world modeling problems.
