Deep Learning for Computer Vision (Cohort #5)

As applied engineering just knows building models are not sufficient for production grade software, these roles focus on core principles, best practices, design patterns, and expertise with a framework and toolset, such as deploy models, and scale for your fast growing applications/services.
This 4 weeks immersive instructor-led course will teach everything you need to know to become a software engineer in computer vision and deep learning! You will learn:
  • Recognize problems can be solved with deep learning
  • Select the right technique for the problems.
  • Master deep learning algorithms, models and computer vision tech
  • Master the most popular tools like numpy, Keras, Tensorflow, and openCV
  • Master google cloud deep learning pipelines
  • This course is packed with practical exercises and code labs. not only will you learn theory, but also get hands-on practice building your own models, tuning models, and serving models

  • We meet twice a week at online classroom (powered by zoom)
  • Practical walkthroughs that present solutions to actual, real-world image classification problems and challenges
  • Hands-on tutorials (with lots of code) that not only show you the algorithms behind deep learning for computer vision but their implementations as well
  • A no-nonsense teaching style that is guaranteed to cut through all the cruft and help you master deep learning for image understanding and visual recognition
  • End to end deep learning pipeline from building models to deploy and serve models

    Student Feedback


    It was a great course. I really learned a lot. (Class 20200804)

    The depth and background of the instructor. He knows the ins and outs of Deep Learning for CV especially with TensorFLOW. (Class 20200804)

    The in-depth look at the deep learning models, Code snippets explaining how-to and historical background. (Class 20200804)

    Very passionate speaker, did a lot of explaining of the concepts with very understandable language. You could see he understands everything in such a way that he could explain it to a 5-year old. I would gladly attend another training led by him. Thumbs up. (Class 20200215)

    This was very good course, wish to have more sessions for more advanced topics and labs (Class 20200215)

    The instructor really good on explaining complex concepts with simple way to easily understand (Class 20200215)

    I really loved the pace and the fact that you explained everything intuitively. In addition, it was apparent that students really loved it. (Class 20190822)

    Good explaination and materials about Keras. Instructor's knowledge and experience (Class 20190822)

    good balance on tech concepts and hands-on code labs (Class 20190822)
