This course will introduce students to practical implementations of various deep learning models using Python and the PyTorch library. Recommended lectures are: Machine Learning, and basic courses on Linear Algebra, Analysis, Probability & Statistics. Basic knowledge of Python is expected, but it is not a hard requirement as long as the student is capable of learning it quickly. However, additional material will be provided to students that need to learn Python from scratch.


Through practical programming exercises, students will deepen their understanding of neural network based models. They will be exposed to various practical considerations that are crucial to make deep learning systems to perform well in practice.
