Deep learning is a form of artificial intelligence that allows machines to learn how to solve complex tasks without being explicitly programmed to do so. In this course, Deep Learning: The Big Picture, you will first learn about the creation of deep neural networks with tools like TensorFlow and the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit. Next, you'll touch on how they are trained, by example, using data. Finally, you will be provided with a high-level understanding of the key concepts, vocabulary, and technology of deep learning. By the end of this course, you'll understand what deep learning is, why it's important, and how it will impact you, your business, and our world.

Course Overview
Hi, I'm Matthew Renze with Pluralsight, and welcome to Deep Learning: The Big Picture. Deep Learning is a type of artificial intelligence and machine learning that has become extremely important in the past few years. Deep learning allows us to teach machines how to complete complex tasks without explicitly programming them to do so. As a result, people with the ability to teach machines using deep learning are in extremely high demand, and commanding significant increases in salary, as deep learning is revolutionizing the world around us. However, most developers and IT professionals have not yet learned this valuable set of skills. In this course, we'll answer the following three questions: what is deep learning, what can it do for you, and how do you get started with deep learning? To answer these questions, we'll learn about deep learning using deep neural networks, their applications, and potential impact on you, your organization, and our world. By the end of this course, you'll understand deep learning and the tools, technology, and trends driving the artificial intelligence revolution. As an introductory course, there are no required prerequisites for this course. We'll be explaining everything you need to know along the way. So please join us today at Pluralsight, and learn how to become part of the artificial intelligence revolution with Deep Learning: The Big Picture.
