Google, the tech giant has launched a free course explaining the machine learning technique that underpins so many of its services such as speech recognition, automatically sorting your photo collection and the list goes on.
Following a post on Google Research Blog by Vincent Vanhoucke, Principal Research Scientist at Google, "deep learning has become one of the hottest topics in machine learning in recent years. With TensorFlow, the deep learning platform that was recently released as an open-source project, Google's goal is to bring the capabilities of deep learning to everyone. So far, the project has been starred more than 16000 times by enthusiasts around the globe."
The launch of the Deep Learning Course which was developed in collaboration with Udacity is to help make deep learning even more accessible to engineers and data scientists at large. This short and intensive course provides anyone with all the basic tools and vocabulary to get started with deep learning, and walk throughs on how to use it to address some of the most common machine learning problems.
The course consists of four lectures which provides a tour of the main building blocks that are used to solve problems ranging from image recognition to text analysis. By the end of the course, it is expected that you will have implemented and trained variety of models on your own machine and will be ready to transfer that knowledge to solve your own problems. For more details, see the Udacity blog post and register for the course.
