75 free courses for Deep Neural Networks (Deep Learning)

Deep Neural Networks, or Deep Learning, is one of the most lucrative and highest paying career fields in this post pandemic market. Once you have mastered Deep Learning, you can work on any of its specializations including NLP and Computer Vision. Also, you don't need an advanced degree to acquire a job in the field of Deep Learning, all you need is to have a clear concept about the subject, and some hands-on projects to prove your prowess in applying those concepts in real-life applications.

To help you upskill yourself in the field of Deep Neural Networks, we have compiled a gigantic list of 75 free courses. These courses ranges from the basics to more advanced topics, and are delivered by various authoritative figures in this field. The mode of delivery varies with courses including YouTube lectures, notes, books etc. However, all of them have one thing in common, all of them are absolutely free!

So, start studying, and as Prof. Geoffrey Hinton said, "Read enough so you start developing intuitions and then trust your intuitions and go for it!" Oh, did we forget to tell you, the first course in this list was delivered by Prof. Geoffrey Hinton himself. Now, isn't that something.
