Professional Program Certificate in Deep Learning (IBM)

General

Program Description

This hands-on program will prepare and equip you with the in-demand skills required to become a successful AI practitioner and start a career in the growing and lucrative field of deep learning.

AI is revolutionizing the way we live, work and communicate. At the heart of AI is Deep Learning. Once a domain of researchers and PhDs only, Deep Learning has now gone mainstream thanks to its practical applications and availability in terms of consumable technology and affordable hardware.

The demand for Data Scientists and Deep Learning professionals is booming, far exceeding the supply of personnel skilled in this field. The industry is clearly embracing AI, embedding it within its fabric. The demand for Deep Learning skills by employers -- and the job salaries of Deep Learning practitioners -- are only bound to increase over time, as AI becomes more pervasive in society. Deep Learning is a future-proof career.

Within this series of courses, you’ll be introduced to concepts and applications in Deep Learning, including various kinds of Neural Networks for supervised and unsupervised learning. You’ll then delve deeper and apply Deep Learning by building models and algorithms using libraries like Keras, PyTorch, and Tensorflow. You’ll also master Deep Learning at scale by leveraging GPU accelerated hardware for image and video processing, as well as to object recognition in Computer Vision.

Throughout this program, you will practice your Deep Learning skills through a series of hands-on labs, assignments, and projects inspired by real-world problems and data sets from the industry. You’ll also complete the program by preparing a Deep Learning capstone project that will showcase your applied skills to prospective employers.

This program is intended to prepare learners and equip them with the skills required to become successful AI practitioners and start a career in applied Deep Learning.
