About this event

Welcome to Kaggle's Introduction to Deep Learning course! You're about to learn all you need to get started building your own deep neural networks. Using Keras and Tensorflow you'll learn how to:

create a fully-connected neural network architecture

apply neural nets to two classic ML problems: regression and classification

train neural nets with stochastic gradient descent, and

improve performance with dropout, batch normalization, and other techniques

The tutorials will introduce you to these topics with fully-worked examples, and then in the exercises, you'll explore these topics in more depth and apply them to real-world datasets.
