Practical Deep Learning for Coders
Fast.ai / onlineApply on site
Welcome! If you’re new to all this deep learning stuff, then don’t worry—we’ll take you through it all step by step. (And if you’re an old hand, then you may want to check out our advanced course: Deep Learning From The Foundations.) We do however assume that you’ve been coding for at least a year, and also that (if you haven’t used Python before) you’ll be putting in the extra time to learn whatever Python you need as you go. (For learning Python, we have a list of python learning resourcesavailable.)
You might be surprised by what you don’t need to become a top deep learning practitioner. You need one year of coding experience, a GPU and appropriate software (see below), and that’s it. You don’t need much data, you don’t need university-level math, and you don’t need a giant data center. For more on this, see our article: What you need to do deep learning.
The easiest way to get started is to just start watching the first video right now! On the sidebar just click “Lessons” and then click on lesson 1, and you’ll be on your way. If you want an overview of the topics that are covered in the course, have a look at this article.
