Here is a list of 5 new courses announced by Andrew Ng.
Building Computer Vision Applications
Andrew Ng will livestream a new course teaching students how to build custom computer vision models on November 6, 10.30 pm IST. The course covers crucial aspects, starting with the identification and scoping of vision applications. It explores technical feasibility, data quantity prerequisites, and selection of inputs and outputs for the vision model.
Participants will explore the selection of appropriate vision project types or models, be it Object Detection, Semantic Segmentation, Image Classification, or other suitable models. Additionally, the course emphasises the application of Data-Centric AI, facilitating rapid iterative development through the systematic identification and resolution of data issues.
Finally, the program covers the process of deploying a computer vision model, guiding learners from initial model development to live deployment, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the entire pipeline.
Generative AI for Everyone
Starting on November 2, Andrew Ng’s new course, Generative AI for Everyone, provides an insightful exploration of generative AI, offering an understanding of its functionalities and limitations. Through hands-on exercises, participants learn practical applications for daily tasks and gain valuable insights into effective prompt engineering and advanced AI utilisation.
The curriculum delves into real-world applications, illustrating common use cases of generative AI. Participants have the opportunity to engage with generative AI tools, enabling the practical application of their knowledge. Moreover, the course offers a comprehensive understanding of AI’s influence on both business and societal landscapes.
By unpacking the impacts of generative AI on various sectors, the course equips learners with the tools to develop effective AI strategies and approaches, ensuring a well-rounded comprehension of AI’s application in real-world scenarios and its implications for both business and society.
Andrew Ng and LangChain
Andrew Ng launched a new generative AI course in collaboration with LangChain founder Harrison Chase. The course, ‘Functions, Tools, and Agents with LangChain‘, focuses on updating developers about advanced LLMs and LangChain usage for working with models.
Ng highlights the recent course developments, emphasising function calling like OpenAI’s LLMs and handling structured data efficiently. The updated training algorithms now comprehend and output data like JSON, providing students direct hands-on experience.
The enhancements lead to more predictable and reliable LLMs, proficient in tool usage for complex problem-solving. The course also introduces LangChain Expression Language (LCEL) to simplify composing chains and agents.
ChatGPT Prompt Engineering for Developers
This course is in partnership with OpenAI. The ChatGPT Prompt Engineering for Developers, is taught using large language models to swiftly create robust applications. The course by Isa Fulford (OpenAI) and Andrew Ng (DeepLearning.AI) explains LLM functionality, prompt engineering best practices, and practical API application.
Students can explore tasks like summarising, inferring sentiment, text transformation, and automated content creation. Also principles for effective prompts, systematic prompt engineering, and building custom chatbots, demonstrated via various examples in our Jupyter notebook for direct hands-on experience are taught.
Deep Learning Specialisation
In Ng’s Deep Learning Specialisation course, students can expect to learn clear, concise modules facilitating self-paced learning. It also teaches practical techniques to initiate AI projects and craft an industry portfolio along with foundational concepts, explained through easy-to-understand lectures and interactive assignments.
The content in this module remains up-to-date with the latest advancements in machine learning. Highly rated by over 120,000 learners with a score of 4.9 out of 5, it is one of the most-favoured data science programs on Coursera. This, however, is a longer course, paced at 10 hours a week for three months.
