Course Introduction

Total Curriculum Duration: 20 Hours

Artificial Intelligence is on a rage! Everyone in the Technology world is talking about it and it is being touted as the godsent miracle to solve the most complex problems mankind wants to solve. Understanding the latest advancements in artificial intelligence can seem overwhelming, but it really boils down to two very popular concepts Machine Learning and Deep Learning. However, Deep Learning is gaining much huge popularity due to its clear supremacy in terms of performance in solving very complex problems.

As per Andrew Ng, Founder and Head of the Google Brain Project, "Deep-learning will transform every single industry. Healthcare and transportation will be transformed by deep-learning. I want to live in an AI-powered society. When anyone goes to see a doctor, I want AI to help that doctor provide higher quality and lower cost medical service. I want every five-year-old to have a personalised tutor."

Deep Learning Market Trend

The Deep Learning Market is expected to register a CAGR of 42.56% over the forecast period from 2020 to 2025. Deep learning, a subfield of machine learning (ML), has led to breakthroughs in several artificial intelligence tasks, including speech recognition, natural language processing and image recognition.

There is massive amounts of money that Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and others are pouring in Deep Learning Research and development of Open Source products and libraries such as TensorFlow, CNTK, Keras, Theano, PyTorch, etc. By far, TensorFlow/Keras combination are leading the market in their penetration as the de-facto choice of Deep Learning Libraries of organisations around the world.

Global Artificial Intelligence Market, By Offering (Hardware, Software and Services), Technology (Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, Context-Aware Computing, Computer Vision), End-User Industry (Healthcare, Manufacturing, Automotive, Agriculture, Retail, Security, Human Resources, Marketing, Law, Fintech, Construction, Defense, Aerospace, Supply Chain, Building Automation, Consumer, Food and Beverage, Gaming, Media and Entertainment, Telecommunication and Oil and Gas) are expected to grow at a CAGR of 39.44% in the period of 2020 to 2027 to reach a level of USD 300 Billion by 2027.


This phenomena is indicative of a massive surge in demand for Data Science and Machine Learning professionals. The ones among them who possess superior Deep Learning skills are going to be the most successful and will demand salaried at a much higher rate.

Convolutional Neural Network

In deep learning, a Convolutional Neural Network or CNN is a class of Artificial Neural Networks or Deep Neural Networks, most commonly applied to analyse visual imagery. Common applications include image analysis and processing, face detection, object detection which has massive amounts of usage in many domains, emotion analysis, more complex usages include uses in self driving cars, etc.

Image processing use cases have gathered massive amount of use cases in the industry and consequently, the demand for CNN experts have surged.
