Stanford University and deeplearning.ai have opened a new massive open online course dedicated to Neural Networks and Deep Learning, which offers crucial skills for future AI developers for free.

The course, led by Stanford Professor Andrew Ng, who has also founded Landing AI and co-founded Coursera, is focused on deep learning, as “a new “superpower” that will let you build AI systems that just weren’t possible a few years ago” and promises to teach how to apply technology in real life:

“This course also teaches you how Deep Learning actually works, rather than presenting only a cursory or surface-level description. So after completing it, you will be able to apply deep learning to your own applications”

The course “Neural Networks and Deep Learning”, offered as part of Deep Learning speciliazation, has started on January 5 and takes approximately 18 hours to complete. The paid certificate is available, as well as financial aid for obtaining it for most dedicated students.

According to Stanford University annual report, the demand for AI job is only growing. But gladly more universities teach students for free to satisfy the growing demand for specialists.

Just before Christmas celebrations, Finland Finland has opened its famous online course “Introduction to AI” to all interested to learn about new technology.

So far the registration remains open for MIT 6.S191 2020 course “Introduction to Deep Learning” that focuses on technology “applications to computer vision, natural language processing, biology, and more”. All course materials are available for free. For those who believe in a breakthrough in the field of self-driving vehicles, MIT offers lectures from “Deep Learning for Self-Driving Cars”.


More practical approach could be also taken with Google’s online course on Udacity, that serves as the introduction to TensorFlow programming for Deep Learning.
