Coursera launched in 2011. As a co-founder, Andrew Ng offered a course on machine learning that quickly became popular. Six years later, Proffessor Ng is offering a new series of courses in deep learning.
In his post, Arvind Nagaraj offers some observations.
“In classic Ng style, the course is delivered through a carefully chosen curriculum, neatly timed videos and precisely positioned information nuggets. Andrew picks up from where his classic ML course left off.”
He also offers some encouragement.
“Everyone starts in this field as a beginner. If you are a complete newcomer to the deep learning field, it’s natural to feel intimidated by all the jargon and concepts. Please don’t give up.”
