The course has several objectives. First, you will learn what a GPT model is (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) and how it operates. Additionally, the course will help you refresh your knowledge of linear algebra and calculus concepts that are crucial for deep learning. You’ll learn how to manipulate matrices, perform vector calculus, and solve optimization problems.
Finally, you will learn how gradient descent is used in deep learning. You’ll learn how to train a linear regression model using gradient descent, and you’ll learn how gradient descent is used to optimize neural network parameters. You’ll also gain practical experience by implementing gradient descent algorithms from scratch using Python.
By the end of this course, you’ll have a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts of deep learning. You’ll be well-prepared to continue your deep learning journey and move on to more advanced topics such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) and Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), leading up to training your own GPT model.
