Description of Deep Learning A to Z Hands-On Artificial Neural Networks Course
Artificial intelligence is growing exponentially. There is no doubt about that. Self-driving cars are clocking up millions of miles, IBM Watson is diagnosing patients better than armies of doctors and Google Deepmind’s AlphaGo beat the World champion at Go – a game where intuition plays a key role.
But the further AI advances, the more complex become the problems it needs to solve. And only Deep Learning can solve such complex problems and that’s why it’s at the heart of Artificial intelligence.
— Why Deep Learning A to Z Hands-On Artificial Neural Networks? —
Here are five reasons we think Deep Learning A-Z™ really is different, and stands out from the crowd of other training programs out there:
1. ROBUST STRUCTURE
The first and most important thing we focused on is giving the course a robust structure. Deep Learning is very broad and complex and to navigate this maze you need a clear and global vision of it.
That’s why we grouped the tutorials into two volumes, representing the two fundamental branches of Deep Learning: Supervised Deep Learning and Unsupervised Deep Learning. With each volume focusing on three distinct algorithms, we found that this is the best structure for mastering Deep Learning.
2. INTUITION TUTORIALS
So many courses and books just bombard you with the theory, and math, and coding… But they forget to explain, perhaps, the most important part: why you are doing what you are doing. And that’s how this course is so different. We focus on developing an intuitive *feel* for the concepts behind Deep Learning algorithms.
With our intuition tutorials you will be confident that you understand all the techniques on an instinctive level. And once you proceed to the hands-on coding exercises you will see for yourself how much more meaningful your experience will be. This is a game-changer.
3. EXCITING PROJECTS
Are you tired of courses based on over-used, outdated data sets?
Yes? Well then you’re in for a treat.
Inside this class we will work on Real-World datasets, to solve Real-World business problems. (Definitely not the boring iris or digit classification datasets that we see in every course). In this course we will solve six real-world challenges:
- Artificial Neural Networks to solve a Customer Churn problem
- Convolutional Neural Networks for Image Recognition
- Recurrent Neural Networks to predict Stock Prices
- Self-Organizing Maps to investigate Fraud
- Boltzmann Machines to create a Recomender System
- Stacked Autoencoders* to take on the challenge for the Netflix $1 Million prize
*Stacked Autoencoders is a brand new technique in Deep Learning which didn’t even exist a couple of years ago. We haven’t seen this method explained anywhere else in sufficient depth.
4. HANDS-ON CODING
In Deep Learning A-Z™ we code together with you. Every practical tutorial starts with a blank page and we write up the code from scratch. This way you can follow along and understand exactly how the code comes together and what each line means.
In addition, we will purposefully structure the code in such a way so that you can download it and apply it in your own projects. Moreover, we explain step-by-step where and how to modify the code to insert YOUR dataset, to tailor the algorithm to your needs, to get the output that you are after.
This is a course which naturally extends into your career.
Who Is This Deep Learning A-Z™ Hands-On Artificial Neural Networks Course For?
As you can see, there are lots of different tools in the space of Deep Learning and in this course, we make sure to show you the most important and most progressive ones so that when you’re done with Deep Learning A-Z™ your skills are on the cutting edge of today’s technology.

If you are just starting out into Deep Learning, then you will find this course extremely useful. Deep Learning A-Z™ is structured around special coding blueprint approaches meaning that you won’t get bogged down in unnecessary programming or mathematical complexities and instead you will be applying Deep Learning techniques from very early on in the course. You will build your knowledge from the ground up and you will see how with every tutorial you are getting more and more confident.
— Real-World Case Studies —
Mastering Deep Learning is not just about knowing the intuition and tools, it’s also about being able to apply these models to real-world scenarios and derive actual measurable results for the business or project. That’s why in this course we are introducing six exciting challenges:
#1 Churn Modelling Problem
In this part you will be solving a data analytics challenge for a bank. You will be given a dataset with a large sample of the bank’s customers. To make this dataset, the bank gathered information such as customer id, credit score, gender, age, tenure, balance, if the customer is active, has a credit card, etc. During a period of 6 months, the bank observed if these customers left or stayed in the bank.
Your goal is to make an Artificial Neural Network that can predict, based on geo-demographical and transactional information given above, if any individual customer will leave the bank or stay (customer churn). Besides, you are asked to rank all the customers of the bank, based on their probability of leaving. To do that, you will need to use the right Deep Learning model, one that is based on a probabilistic approach.
If you succeed in this project, you will create significant added value to the bank. By applying your Deep Learning model the bank may significantly reduce customer churn.
#2 Image Recognition
In this part, you will create a Convolutional Neural Network that is able to detect various objects in images. We will implement this Deep Learning model to recognize a cat or a dog in a set of pictures. However, this model can be reused to detect anything else and we will show you how to do it – by simply changing the pictures in the input folder.
#3 Stock Price Prediction
The branch of Deep Learning which facilitates this is Recurrent Neural Networks. Classic RNNs have short memory, and were neither popular nor powerful for this exact reason. But a recent major improvement in Recurrent Neural Networks gave rise to the popularity of LSTMs (Long Short Term Memory RNNs) which has completely changed the playing field. We are extremely excited to include these cutting-edge deep learning methods in our Deep Learning A to Z Hands-On Artificial Neural Networks course!
#4 Fraud Detection
According to a recent report published by Markets & Markets the Fraud Detection and Prevention Market is going to be worth $33.19 Billion USD by 2021. This is a huge industry and the demand for advanced Deep Learning skills is only going to grow. That’s why we have included this case study in the Deep Learning A to Z Hands-On Artificial Neural Networks course.
#5 & 6 Recommender Systems
From Amazon product suggestions to Netflix movie recommendations – good recommender systems are very valuable in today’s World. And specialists who can create them are some of the top-paid Data Scientists on the planet.
We will work on a dataset that has exactly the same features as the Netflix dataset: plenty of movies, thousands of users, who have rated the movies they watched. The ratings go from 1 to 5, exactly like in the Netflix dataset, which makes the Recommender System more complex to build than if the ratings were simply “Liked” or “Not Liked”.
Your final Recommender System will be able to predict the ratings of the movies the customers didn’t watch. Accordingly, by ranking the predictions from 5 down to 1, your Deep Learning model will be able to recommend which movies each user should watch. Creating such a powerful Recommender System is quite a challenge so we will give ourselves two shots. Meaning we will build it with two different Deep Learning models.
