This class is an introduction to the practice of deep learning through the applied theme of building a self-driving car. It is open to beginners and is designed for those who are new to machine learning, but it can also benefit advanced researchers in the field looking for a practical overview of deep learning methods and their application. In the mean time, if interested, here are a few things you can do:

  1. Sign up to our mailing list for updates.
