Understand the Impact of Learning Rate on Neural Network Performance

Deep learning neural networks are trained using the stochastic gradient descent optimization algorithm. The learning rate is a hyperparameter that controls how much to change the model in response to the estimated error each time the model weights are updated. Choosing the learning rate is challenging as a value too small may result in a […]

Overview of Course Structure

Practical Deep Learning for Coders (Review)

Practical deep learning is a challenging subject in which to get started. It is often taught in a bottom-up manner, requiring that you first get familiar with linear algebra, calculus, and mathematical optimization before eventually learning the neural network techniques. This can take years, and most of the background theory will not help you to […]

Activation Regularization for Reducing Generalization Error in Deep Learning Neural Networks

A Gentle Introduction to Activation Regularization in Deep Learning

Deep learning models are capable of automatically learning a rich internal representation from raw input data. This is called feature or representation learning. Better learned representations, in turn, can lead to better insights into the domain, e.g. via visualization of learned features, and to better predictive models that make use of the learned features. A […]

A Gentle Introduction to Deep Learning Caption Generation Models

Caption generation is the challenging artificial intelligence problem of generating a human-readable textual description given a photograph. It requires both image understanding from the domain of computer vision and a language model from the field of natural language processing. It is important to consider and test multiple ways to frame a given predictive modeling problem […]
