CSCI 8590 FUNDAMENTALS OF DEEP LEARNING (3 credits)
This course is an introduction to deep learning, a branch of machine learning concerned with the development and application of neural networks. Deep learning trains the machine to learn patterns that it is presented with rather than requiring the human operator to define the patterns that the machine should look for. Deep learning is behind many recent advances in artificial intelligence, such as face recognition, speech recognition and autonomous driving. This course will cover the foundations of deep learning, learning theory, basic/advanced neural networks and problem domains of many selected applications.
