During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

Unit of study_

COMP5329: Deep Learning

This course provides an introduction to deep machine learning, which is rapidly emerging as one of the most successful and widely applicable set of techniques across a range of applications. Students taking this course will be exposed to cutting-edge research in machine learning, starting from theories, models, and algorithms, to implementation and recent progress of deep learning. Specific topics include: classical architectures of deep neural network, optimization techniques for training deep neural networks, theoretical understanding of deep learning, and diverse applications of deep learning in computer vision.

Assumed knowledge:

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. demonstrate knowledge of the broad range of deep learning applications, such as image classification, object detection, image segmentation and face recognition
  • LO2. use deep learning software to create deep learning prototypes
  • LO3. evaluate deep learning algorithms
  • LO4. demonstrate knowledge of the main methods of deep neural network design and evaluation and the relative strengths and weaknesses of each, and their most appropriate uses
  • LO5. model application problems as deep learning problems
  • LO6. apply and tailor known deep learning algorithms for solving new challenging problems
  • LO7. present the design and evaluation of a deep learning prototype, defining the requirements, describing the design processes and evaluation.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for 1000-level and 5000-level units, or one week before the first day of teaching for all other units.
