An Introduction to AI Unit 4: Convolutional and Recurrent Neural Networks

In stock
1 Hour
Unit overview

This unit will explore some more advanced types of neural networks. We will look at convolutional neural nets, which are really good for image processing such as recognising faces and animals. For sequence type data, such as language and speech, we will look at using recurrent neural networks and memory models. We will also explore reinforcement learning, where systems obtain and learn from data from the environment and the use of the AI system itself. This unit will also discuss some applications and how one can start from pre-trained systems and adapt them for other applications, so-called transfer learning.

What you will learn
By the end of this unit, you will:

• Understand more advanced types of neural networks.
• Have gained enough background to run the programs we discuss in this unit or use other open source libraries you might find on the internet.
• Understand convolutional neural networks.
• Understand recurrent neural networks.
• Understand transfer learning using Keras.

Who should learn
This introductory course is open to learners of all levels. No computer science or programming experience is needed, but an understanding of simple algebra would be useful.
