For whom is this course?

This course is a suitable choice for beginners in Deep Learning and Computer Vision. It encompasses the rudiments of Neural Networks, Convolutions and the essential math concepts with a real-world case study.


The aim is to share knowledge in the field of Computer Vision with the assistance of an end-to-end pipeline starting with Data processing till preparing a deep learning model for edge deployment. 

  • How artificial Neuron functions and a Neural Network is formed
  • Understanding the learning  process of Neural Networks
  • Optimization of  model training
  • The idea of Pre-trained models and Transfer Learning
  • Implementation of an Image Classifier in keras(Tensorflow) and preparing the model for edge deployment

What will you learn?

  • A complete understanding of the entire learning process in CNN
  • How to preprocess the images to increase the training samples
  • Good knowledge of model implementation in keras(tensorflow)
  • Entire pipeline understanding for edge device deployment
