Deep Learning

Monday 6 - 7:45 pm // Get in-depth knowledge on deep neural networks.



The course will be online. With confirming your participation we will send you a Zoom-Link to join the course.  

For students the participation is for free. For employees we charge a participation fee of 200€.

Your Background
You have knowledge about programming and linear algebra (working with vector and matrices) and are interested in getting in-depth knowledge on how to implement machine learning algorithms.

The Course Content
This course is based on the first three courses of the online Coursera Specialization "Deep Learning" provided by (see The instructor is Andrew Ng, co-founder of Coursera, founding lead of the Google Brain Team, and professor in computer science at Stanford University.

The course will provide you with an introduction to machine learning and deep learning, teach you about computer vision using convolutional neural networks, natural language processing, and how to solve time series and forecasting problems. You will then apply the newly aquired knowledge to implement your own machine learning project in a team.

How It Works
The course will take place every Monday from 6 pm to 7:45 pm.

Before the first meeting there will be a semesterkick-off.

During the week you will be expected to work through the assigned online course content, which will take you between 4 to 5 hours each week, open questions considering the course content and possible additional implications will then be discussed in the weekly offline course on Monday. Towards the end of the semester you will then work in a team on your own machine learning project.
All needed software and online course content is free. For the practical assignments in the online course, however, it will be necessary to create a Google account.

The Formalities
In order to receive a certificate of attendance for this course, active participation is expected, and no more than two classes may be missed. The active participation is proven by screenshots of your taken online courses, the final presentation of your project by you and your team, and the delivery of a documented project source code.
The same conditions also apply in order to receive credit points.

Further details may be given in the course and here.
