1. Andrew Ng (吴恩达) 深度学习专项课程 by Coursera and deeplearning.ai

这是 Andrew Ng 老师离开百度后推出的第一个深度学习项目(deeplearning.ai)的一个课程: Deep Learning Specialization ,课程口号是:Master Deep Learning, and Break into AI. 作为 Coursera 联合创始人 和 机器学习网红课程Machine Learning” 的授课者,Andrew Ng 老师引领了数百万同学进入了机器学习领域,而这门深度学习课程的口号也透露了他的野心:继续带领百万人进入深度学习的圣地。

作为 Andrew Ng 老师的粉丝,依然推荐这门课程作为深度学习入门课程首选,并且建议花费上 Coursera 上的课程,一方面可以做题,另外还有证书,最重要的是它的编程作业,是理解课程内容的关键点,仅仅看视频绝对是达不到这个效果的。参考:《Andrew Ng 深度学习课程小记》和《Andrew Ng (吴恩达) 深度学习课程小结》。

3. 牛津大学深度学习课程(2015): Deep learning at Oxford 2015

这门深度学习课程名字虽然是 “Machine Learning 2014-2015″,不过主要聚焦在深度学习的内容上,可以作为一门很系统的机器学习深度学习课程:

Machine learning techniques enable us to automatically extract features from data so as to solve predictive tasks, such as speech recognition, object recognition, machine translation, question-answering, anomaly detection, medical diagnosis and prognosis, automatic algorithm configuration, personalisation, robot control, time series forecasting, and much more. Learning systems adapt so that they can solve new tasks, related to previously encountered tasks, more efficiently.

The course focuses on the exciting field of deep learning. By drawing inspiration from neuroscience and statistics, it introduces the basic background on neural networks, back propagation, Boltzmann machines, autoencoders, convolutional neural networks and recurrent neural networks. It illustrates how deep learning is impacting our understanding of intelligence and contributing to the practical design of intelligent machines.

11. 斯坦福大学深度学习应用课程:CS231n: Convolutional Neural Networks for Visual Recognition

这门面向计算机视觉的深度学习课程由Fei-Fei Li教授掌舵,内容面向斯坦福大学学生,货真价实,评价颇高:

Computer Vision has become ubiquitous in our society, with applications in search, image understanding, apps, mapping, medicine, drones, and self-driving cars. Core to many of these applications are visual recognition tasks such as image classification, localization and detection. Recent developments in neural network (aka “deep learning”) approaches have greatly advanced the performance of these state-of-the-art visual recognition systems. This course is a deep dive into details of the deep learning architectures with a focus on learning end-to-end models for these tasks, particularly image classification. During the 10-week course, students will learn to implement, train and debug their own neural networks and gain a detailed understanding of cutting-edge research in computer vision. The final assignment will involve training a multi-million parameter convolutional neural network and applying it on the largest image classification dataset (ImageNet). We will focus on teaching how to set up the problem of image recognition, the learning algorithms (e.g. backpropagation), practical engineering tricks for training and fine-tuning the networks and guide the students through hands-on assignments and a final course project. Much of the background and materials of this course will be drawn from the ImageNet Challenge.

12. 斯坦福大学深度学习应用课程: Natural Language Processing with Deep Learning

这门课程由NLP领域的大牛 Chris Manning 和 Richard Socher 执掌,绝对是学习深度学习自然语言处理的不二法门。

Natural language processing (NLP) is one of the most important technologies of the information age. Understanding complex language utterances is also a crucial part of artificial intelligence. Applications of NLP are everywhere because people communicate most everything in language: web search, advertisement, emails, customer service, language translation, radiology reports, etc. There are a large variety of underlying tasks and machine learning models behind NLP applications. Recently, deep learning approaches have obtained very high performance across many different NLP tasks. These models can often be trained with a single end-to-end model and do not require traditional, task-specific feature engineering. In this winter quarter course students will learn to implement, train, debug, visualize and invent their own neural network models. The course provides a thorough introduction to cutting-edge research in deep learning applied to NLP. On the model side we will cover word vector representations, window-based neural networks, recurrent neural networks, long-short-term-memory models, recursive neural networks, convolutional neural networks as well as some recent models involving a memory component. Through lectures and programming assignments students will learn the necessary engineering tricks for making neural networks work on practical problems.

这门课程融合了两位授课者之前在斯坦福大学的授课课程,分别是自然语言处理课程 cs224n (Natural Language Processing)和面向自然语言处理的深度学习课程 cs224d (Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing).

13. 斯坦福大学深度学习课程: CS 20SI: Tensorflow for Deep Learning Research


Tensorflow is a powerful open-source software library for machine learning developed by researchers at Google Brain. It has many pre-built functions to ease the task of building different neural networks. Tensorflow allows distribution of computation across different computers, as well as multiple CPUs and GPUs within a single machine. TensorFlow provides a Python API, as well as a less documented C++ API. For this course, we will be using Python.

This course will cover the fundamentals and contemporary usage of the Tensorflow library for deep learning research. We aim to help students understand the graphical computational model of Tensorflow, explore the functions it has to offer, and learn how to build and structure models best suited for a deep learning project. Through the course, students will use Tensorflow to build models of different complexity, from simple linear/logistic regression to convolutional neural network and recurrent neural networks with LSTM to solve tasks such as word embeddings, translation, optical character recognition. Students will also learn best practices to structure a model and manage research experiments.
