Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), a class of neural networks, are essential in processing sequences such as sensor measurements, daily stock prices, etc. In fact, most of the sequence modelling problems on images and videos are still hard to solve without Recurrent Neural Networks. Further, RNNs are also considered to be the general form of deep learning architecture. Hence, the understanding of RNNs is crucial in all the fields of Data Science. This course addresses all these concerns and empowers you to take your career to the next level with a masterful grip on the theoretical concepts and practical implementations of RNNs in Data Science.
Why Should You Enroll in This Course?

How Is This Course Different?
This is a practical course that encourages you to explore and experience the real-world applications of RNNs. The course starts with the basics of how RNNs work and then goes far deep gradually. So, if your ambition is to become a Python developer, this course is indispensable.
You are assigned Home Work/ tasks/ activities at the end of the subtopics in each module. The reason for this is to make your learning easier and also to assess and further build your learning based on the concepts and methods you have learned previously. Most of these activities are coding based, preparing you for implementing the concepts you learn at your workplace.
With a core understanding of RNNs, you can sharpen your deep learning skills and ensure emerging career growth. Data Science, as a career path, is certainly rewarding. You not only get the opportunity to solve some of the most interesting problems, but you are also assured of a handsome salary package.
This course presents you with a cost-effective option to learn the concepts and methodologies of RNNs with Data Science. Our tutorials are subdivided into a series of short, in-depth HD videos along with detailed code notebooks.
So, without further delay, get started with the course that simplifies complex concepts for you.
Teaching Is Our Passion:
We focus on creating online tutorials that encourage learning by doing. We aim to provide you with more than a superficial look at RNNs. For instance, the two mini-projects in the final module will help you to see for yourself via experimentation the practical implementation of RNNs in the real world. We have worked extra hard to ensure you understand the concepts clearly. We want you to have a sound understanding of the basics before you move onward to the more complex concepts. The course materials that make certain you accomplish all this include high-quality video content, course notes, meaningful course materials, handouts, and evaluation exercises. You can also get in touch with our friendly team in case of any queries.
