MIT Deep Learning Basics: Introduction and Overview – Lex Fridman

Lex Fridman, a Postdoctoral Associate at the MIT AgeLab, gave an informative introductory lecture for MIT course 6.S094 on the basics of deep learning including a few key ideas, subfields, and the big picture of why neural networks have inspired and energized an entirely new generation of researchers.

The outline of this course; Deep learning, History of ideas and tools, TensorFlow and Simple example in TensorFlow, Deep learning is representation learning, Why deep learning (and why not), Challenges for supervised learning, Key low-level concepts, Higher-level methods and Toward artificial general intelligence
