About Introduction to Neural Networks Course

There has been a tremendous boom in the applications of Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing now a days.

The applications of Computer Vision range from understanding the environment in a Self - Driving Car to build Facial Recognition based Attention Systems for classrooms in Education Industry. Natural Language Processing on the other hand helps us to build ChatBots. 

Computer Vision systems deal with high variety and volume of data, specifically images or videos. It is represented as bits and blobs which is hard to explain to a machine. As a result, these systems need intricate techniques to make sense of the data and then make data driven decisions.

This course is designed to give you a taste of how the neural networks works which are the basic building blocks behind any computer vision or natural language processing applications.


This is a beginner friendly course, so it does not assume any familiarity with Computer Vision or Deep Learning algorithms. But, this course assumes that you are comfortable with Python programming.
