  1. Make Deep Learning easier (minimal code).
  2. Minimise required mathematics.
  3. Make it practical (runs on laptops).
  4. Open Source Deep Learning Learning.


  1. Install Docker
  2. Use the following commands to run from docker1.
git clone
docker-compose up --build
  1. Now go to localhost:9000 on your browser to start using the jupyter notebooks.
  2. (Optional) If you are on a mac/windows some of the examples may not work because the docker image may run out of memory. Hence under preferences in docker there is the option to increase the allocated memory. I have set it to 8GB. Run docker-compose up again if you reset memory.

See here for installing on windows.


  1. Lesson 0: Introduction to regression.
  2. Lesson 1: Penalising weights to fit better (scikit learn intro)

Mathematics (optional)

  1. Lesson 2: Gradient Descent. Using basic optimisation methods.
  2. Lesson 3: Tensorflow intro: zero layer hidden networks (i.e. normal regression).
  3. Lesson 4: Tensorflow hidden layer introduction.

Deep Learning

  1. Lesson 5: Using Keras to simplify multi layer neural nets.
  2. Lesson 6: Embeddings to deal with categorical data. (Keras)
  3. Lesson 7: Word2Vec. Embeddings to visualise words. (Tensorflow)
  4. Lesson 8: Application - Bike Sharing predictions
  5. Lesson 9: Choosing Number of Layers and more
  6. Lesson 10: XGBoost - A quick detour from Deep Learning
  7. Lesson 11: Convolutional Neural Nets (MNIST dataset)
  8. Lesson 12: CNNs and BatchNormalisation (CIFAR10 dataset)
  9. Lesson 13: Transfer Learning (Dogs vs Cats dataset)
