Course content

The course provide an introduction to the theory behind key machine learning algorithms used in image analysis. Furthermore, selected methods and tools for deep learning are described.

Learning outcome

After finishing the course you´ll:

  • have good knowledge of how neural networks are built up and how backpropagation works
  • have a good knowledge of how a web is practiced in practice and how the training process can be monitored
  • know the key mathematical methods used in the algorithms
  • know different network architectures and in what contexts they are suitable
  • have knowledge of overtime, generalization, and validation and how best possible generalization can be achieved
  • know how the convolutions network works and how these can be customized for different purposes.
  • have basic knowledge in topics such as unsupervised learning, recurrent networks, and reinforcement learning.
  • have experience in using deep learning tools such as Tensorflow
