  • Some prior coding experience with python is required.


Neural networks are a family of machine learning algorithms that are generating a lot of excitement. They are a technique that is inspired by how the neurons in our brains function. They are based on a simple idea: given certain parameters, it is possible to combine them in order to predict a certain result. For example, if you know the number of pixels in an image, there are ways of knowing which number is written in the image. The data that enters passes through various “ layers” in which a series of adjusted learning rules are applied by a weighted function. After passing through the last layer, the results are compared with the “correct” results, and the parameters are adjusted.

Although the algorithms and the learning process in general are complex, one the network has learned, it can freeze the various weights and function in a memory or execution mode. Google uses these types of algorithms, for example, for image searches.

There is no single definition for the meaning of Deep Learning. In general, when we talk of Deep Learning, we are referring to a group of Machine Learning algorithms based on neural networks that, as we have seen, are characterized by cascade data processing. The entrance signal passes through the various stages, and in each one, they are subjected to a non-linear transformation. This helps to extract and transform the variable according to the determined parameters (weights or boundaries). There isn’t an established limit for the number of stages that a neural network must contain to be considered Deep Learning. However, it is thought that Deep Learning arose in the 80’s, using a model which had 5 or 6 layers. It was (and is) called the neocognitron and was created by the Japanese researcher Kunihiki Fukushima. Neural networks are very effective in identifying patterns.

An example worth highlighting of the application of Deep Learning is the project carried out by Google and the Universities of Stanford and Massachusetts. It aimed to improve the natural language processing techniques of a type of AI called Recurrent Neural Network Language Model (RNNLM). It’s used for automatic translations and creating subtitles, among other thing. Basically, it builds up phrases word by words, basing each word on the previous one and in this way, it can even write poems.

Tensorflow 2.0 | Recurrent Neural Networks, LSTMs, GRUs

What you’ll learn







Time series


  • Python
  • Numpy
  • Tensorflow or keras
  • Feed Forward Neural Networks
  • Back Propagation


This is a preview to the exciting Recurrent Neural Networks course that will be going live soon. Recurrent Networks are an exciting type of neural network that deal with data that come in the form of a sequence. Sequences are all around us such as sentences, music, videos, and stock market graphs. And dealing with them requires some type of memory element to remember the history of the sequences, this is where Recurrent Neural networks come in.

We will be covering topics such as RNNs, LSTMs, GRUs, NLP, Seq2Seq, attention networks and much much more.

You will also be building projects, such as a Time series Prediction, music generator, language translation, image captioning, spam detection, action recognition and much more.

Building these projects will impress even the most senior machine learning developers; and will prepare you to start tackling your own deep learning projects with real datasets to show off to your colleagues or even potential employers.

Sequential Networks are very exciting to work with and allow for the creation of very intelligent applications. If you’re interested in taking your machine learning skills to the next level, then this course is for you!

Neural Networks Made Easy

Neural Network Fundamentals


  • Be able to code in Python with NumPy and Pandas


Wanna understand deep learning and neural networks so well, you could code them from scratch? In this course, we’ll do exactly that.

The course starts by motivating and explaining perceptrons, and then gradually works its way toward deriving and coding a multiclass neural network with stochastic gradient descent that can recognize hand-written digits from the famous MNIST dataset.

Course Goals

This course is all about understanding the fundamentals of neural networks. So, it does not discuss TensorFlow, PyTorch, or any other neural network libraries. However, by the end of this course, you should understand neural networks so well that learning TensorFlow and PyTorch should be a breeze!


In this course, I present a number of coding challenges inside the video lectures. The general approach is, we’ll discuss an idea and the theory behind it, and then you’re challenged to implement the idea / algorithm in Python. I’ll discuss my solution to every challenge, and my code is readily available on github.


In this course, we’ll be using Python, NumPy, Pandas, and good bit of calculus. ..but don’t let the math scare you. I explain everything in great detail with examples and visuals.

If you’re rusty on your NumPy or Pandas, check out my free courses Python NumPy For Your Grandma and Python Pandas For Your Grandpa.

Simple implementation of convolutional neural networks, deep neural networks, recurrent neural networks, and linear regression

Understanding of keras syntax

Understanding of different deep learning algorithms


  • Basic python knowledge
  • Familiarity with data science and numpy


When I started learning deep learning, I had a hard time figuring out how everything worked. What library was the best for me? Which algorithms worked best for which data set? How could I know my model was accurate? I spent a lot of time on tutorials, courses and reading to try and answer these questions. In the end, I felt like the process I took to learn deep learning was too inefficient. That is why I created this course.

Learn Keras: Build 4 Deep Learning Applications is a course that I designed to solve the problems my past self had. This course is designed to get you up and running with deep learning as quickly as possible. We use keras in this course because it is one of the easiest libraries to learn for deep learning. Each video, we go over a different machine learning algorithm and its use cases. The four algorithms we focus on the most are:

1. Linear Regression

2. Dense Neural Networks

3. Convolutional Neural Networks

4. Recurrent Neural Networks

In conclusion, if you are looking at a quick intro into deep learning, this course is for you.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!

Machine Learning for All

About this Course

Machine Learning, often called Artificial Intelligence or AI, is one of the most exciting areas of technology at the moment. We see daily news stories that herald new breakthroughs in facial recognition technology, self driving cars or computers that can have a conversation just like a real person. Machine Learning technology is set to revolutionise almost any area of human life and work, and so will affect all our lives, and so you are likely to want to find out more about it. Machine Learning has a reputation for being one of the most complex areas of computer science, requiring advanced mathematics and engineering skills to understand it. While it is true that working as a Machine Learning engineer does involve a lot of mathematics and programming, we believe that anyone can understand the basic concepts of Machine Learning, and given the importance of this technology, everyone should. The big AI breakthroughs sound like science fiction, but they come down to a simple idea: the use of data to train statistical algorithms. In this course you will learn to understand the basic idea of machine learning, even if you don’t have any background in math or programming. Not only that, you will get hands on and use user friendly tools developed at Goldsmiths, University of London to actually do a machine learning project: training a computer to recognise images. This course is for a lot of different people. It could be a good first step into a technical career in Machine Learning, after all it is always better to start with the high level concepts before the technical details, but it is also great if your role is non-technical. You might be a manager or other non-technical role in a company that is considering using Machine Learning. You really need to understand this technology, and this course is a great place to get that understanding. Or you might just be following the news reports about AI and interested in finding out more about the hottest new technology of the moment. Whoever you are, we are looking forward to guiding you through you first machine learning project.

NB this course is designed to introduce you to Machine Learning without needing any programming. That means that we don’t cover the programming based machine learning tools like python and TensorFlow.
