New Deep Learning Courses Released on Coursera, with Hope of Teaching Millions the Basics of Artificial Intelligence

FYI: If you fol­low edtech, you know the name Andrew Ng. He’s the Stan­ford com­put­er sci­ence pro­fes­sor, who co-found­ed MOOC-provider Cours­era and lat­er became chief sci­en­tist at Baidu. Since leav­ing Baidu, he’s been work­ing on three arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence projects, the first of which he unveiled yes­ter­day. On Medi­um, he wrote:

I have been work­ing on three new AI projects, and am thrilled to announce the first one:, a project ded­i­cat­ed to dis­sem­i­nat­ing AI knowl­edge, is launch­ing a new sequence of Deep Learn­ing cours­es on Cours­era. These cours­es will help you mas­ter Deep Learn­ing, apply it effec­tive­ly, and build a career in AI.

Speak­ing to the MIT Tech­nol­o­gy Review, Ng elab­o­rat­ed: “The thing that real­ly excites me today is build­ing a new AI-pow­ered soci­ety… I don’t think any one com­pa­ny could do all the work that needs to be done, so I think the only way to get there is if we teach mil­lions of peo­ple to use these AI tools so they can go and invent the things that no large com­pa­ny, or com­pa­ny I could build, could do.”

Andrew’s new 5‑part series of cours­es on Deep Learn­ing can be accessed here. Cours­es include: Neur­al Net­works and Deep Learn­ing, Improv­ing Deep Neur­al Net­works, Struc­tur­ing Machine Learn­ing Projects, Con­vo­lu­tion­al Neur­al Net­works, and Sequence Mod­els.

You can find these cours­es on our list of Free Com­put­er Sci­ence Cours­es, a sub­set of our col­lec­tion, 1,700 Free Online Cours­es from Top Uni­ver­si­ties.
