Nando de Freitas is a “machine learning professor at Oxford University, a lead research scientist at Google DeepMind, and a Fellow of the Canadian Institute For Advanced Research (CIFAR) in the Neural Computation and Adaptive Perception program.”
Above, you can watch him teach an Oxford course on Deep Learning, a hot subfield of machine learning and artificial intelligence which creates neural networks–essentially complex algorithms modeled loosely after the human brain–that can recognize patterns and learn to perform tasks.
To complement the 16 lectures you can also find lecture slides, practicals, and problems sets on this Oxford web site. If you’d like to learn about Deep Learning in a MOOC format, be sure to check out the new series of courses created by Andrew Ng on Coursera.
Oxford’s Deep Learning course will be added to our list of Free Online Computer Science Courses, part of our meta collection, 1,700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
