This course begins by covering the basics of neural networks and the tensorflow.keras API. We will then focus on using Spark to scale our models, including distributed training, hyperparameter tuning, and inference, and the meanwhile leveraging MLflow to track, version, and manage these models. You will apply model interpretability libraries to explain model predictions. Further, you will learn the concepts behind Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) and transfer learning, and apply them to solve image classification tasks. We will wrap up the course by covering Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) and attention-based models for natural language processing (NLP) applications.
