When Andrew Ng announced back in June, it was hard to know exactly what the AI frontiersman was up to. In his time since departing as Baidu’s chief scientist, Ng has been developing a sequel of sorts to his popular introductory machine learning Coursera class. This go around, he is focusing specifically on deep learning.

Coursera’s new Deep Learning Specialization Certificate will feature five courses. These classes, a collaboration between Ng and Stanford grad students Kian Katanforoosh and Younes Mourr, will teach neural networks, backpropagation, convolutional nets and recurrent nets in addition to other core aspects of deep learning.

Students - Learning - Projects - Problems - Healthcare

Students that enroll will also be able to participate in applied deep learning projects to address real-world problems in healthcare, music generation and language understanding. Some of the lectures will also include interviews with deep learning developers. Three of the five courses are launching today.

“Demand for deep learning vastly outstrips supply,” Ng explained to me in an interview. “It’s concentrated in a few labs, a few leading universities and technically lots of knowledge is in ARXIV.”

Ng - Machine - Class - Coursera - Class

Ng’s initial machine learning class became Coursera’s first class back in 2011. Since then, over 1.5 million students have taken the class. His goal is still helping to create the easiest way for students to contribute to the growth in the field of AI...
