Course overview

Practical Deep Learning

This course is perfect for anyone looking to get into deep learning. You'll learn advanced techniques and build your own DALLE-2 model from scratch. Even if you are completely new to machine learning, this hands on course will give you the foundation you need to get started.

Who is this course for

01

You are a developer with no experience in ML, but you want to get into the field by jumping straight to the latest advances in deep learning

02

You are an ML engineer/practitioner but haven't had experience with Deep Learning.

03

You are a deep learning practitioner but haven't kept up with the latest advancements

Key outcomes

Fundamentals and Intuitions

Understand the relevant fundamentals of deep learning that allows you to develop your own intuitions for solving problems using deep learning. Just the right amount of basics to feel confident in your own pursuits.

Ship your own models to production

Get practical understanding of how to ship your ML application in the real world. Designing the model is only one aspect of ML app development. There are many gotchas to get it working in the real world. We get you past those.

Latest and greatest

Get up to speed with how to use latest and greatest techniques in deep learning. We deep dive into transformers and variational auto encoders that power some of the most powerful models in deep learning.

Ship your own DALLE-2

Build your own DALLE-2 from scratch to get a flavor of building an end to end advanced application. Walk away with code snippets, examples that help you get started on your own project.

Madhav Jha

Madhav is a computer scientist based in SF. He got his PhD on the mathematical side of computer science. He has worked as applied scientist at Amazon, as software engineer at various small and big startups, and is currently an ML engineer at Dropbox. As a CTO of an early stage AI startup, he understands and appreciates the frustrations of a software engineer trying to build something in the AI space. He strongly feels that the math behind deep learning can be simplified and armed with it software professionals can get the most out of deep learning models.

Course syllabus

01

Deep Learning Fundamentals

This module serves to be a crash course on deep learning for beginners and a quick recap for intermediate and advanced practitioners. We survey various problems that can be tackled using deep learning and help you build an intuition for problem solving using deep learning.


Ship your first deep learning model.

02

Advanced topics in deep learning

This module dives straight into one of the most exciting recent development in deep learning: Diffusion Models. Along the way we discuss two other advanced techniques transformers and variational autoencoders.

03

Ship your own DALLE-2

We go through the journey of building DALLE-2 from scratch. This gives you a hands on experience in building an advanced model end to end. Along the way we apply some advanced techniques from the previous module.

04

Modify DALLE-2 for novel use cases

Learn how to use and modify DALLE-2 for your own use case. Ultimately it is much more satisfying to scratch your own itch. We help you take your own ideas to completion where you learn to modify DALLE-2 for your own use case.
