Learning Outcomes

Understanding of the foundations of neural networks and deep learning, including optimization and regularization aspects. Understanding of the most popular deep neural network architectures used in practice (e.g. convolutional neural networks). Ability to implement a neural network using common deep learning frameworks.


Foundations of neural networks, including the perceptron, multi-layer perceptrons, activation functions, loss functions, error backpropagation, and the questions of optimization and regularization. Common optimization techniques such as SGD, momentum, and RMSProp. Common regularization techniques such as weight decay, dropout, and Lipschitz constraints. Presentation of popular architectures, such as the convolutional neural network, autoencoders, and recurrent neural networks. Introduction to the PyTorch deep learning framework.
