Deep Learning for Java Developers

Course Description 

Machine Learning is an extremely popular field both of researchers as well as programmers. After spending several years programming and building application machine learning acts as a natural area where you would like to evolve to.

This course starts by building basic concepts on what machines learning is and how machines learn. You built your very own learning model in Java from scratch and improve it as you learn more concepts.

You will then move on to building Deep Neural networks using Java. You will use these networks to train models on Image Recognition and test their accuracy.

Later, the course discussed Convolutional Neural Networks, the state of the art Deep Learning network that can achieve more than 90% accuracy in image recognition.
