About

PyTorch is Facebook’s latest Python-based framework for Deep Learning. It has the ability to create dynamic Neural Networks on CPUs and GPUs, both with a significantly less code compared to other competing frameworks. PyTorch has a unique interface that makes it as easy to learn as NumPy.

This 7-day course is for those who are in a hurry to get started with PyTorch. You will be introduced to the most commonly used Deep Learning models, techniques, and algorithms through PyTorch code. This course is an attempt to break the myth that Deep Learning is complicated and show you that with the right choice of tools combined with a simple and intuitive explanation of core concepts, Deep Learning is as accessible as any other application development technologies out there. It’s a journey from diving deep into the fundamentals to getting acquainted with the advance concepts such as Transfer Learning, Natural Language Processing and implementation of Generative Adversarial Networks.

By the end of the course, you will be able to build Deep Learning applications with PyTorch.

Style and Approach

This hands-on course will get you up-and-running with PyTorch in a week. It is composed of seven lessons. Each video covers one single concept or a set of code modules explained via step-by-step code walkthrough. The complete lesson is systematically explained and is followed by an assignment to spend time on your own as an exercise.

Features
  • A systematic guide on Deep Learning to help you build smart applications
  • Cover core concepts and architectures of Deep Learning systems without getting bogged down in mathematical notation
  • Solve Machine Learning problems by applying Deep Learning architectures
