Deep Learning Using Python

Development Academy of the Philippines
Enrollment is Closed

Course Overview

Deep Learning is a more advanced implementation of machine learning. By having knowledge in deep learning, data scientists may accomplish complex machine learning tasks including artificial intelligence that may provide deep levels of perceptual recognition. This course equips participants with practical knowledge in Deep Learning using Python. The course covers widely used Python libraries useful in efficiently performing Deep Learning, together with various scenarios and algorithms that go along with it.

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this course, the learners are expected to:

  • analyze the different concepts of Deep Learning and its use-cases; and
  • perform Python algorithms and accomplish Deep Learning tasks, applying widely used libraries on realistic examples.


You will need a computer or laptop with Python installed. Computer or laptop requirements are:

  • 8GB RAM and Core i5, or get a production type, download and install Anaconda package tool.

Note to SPARTA scholars: Upon enrollment, you will have 6 months to finish a SPARTA course. Failure to complete the course in 6 months and/or inactivity for 3 months will result in course access revocation.
