Last night Udacity announced a Deep Learning Nanodegree Foundation Program, in partnership with Siraj Rival, who has been teaching deep learning on YouTube to a huge audience.
We’re really excited about this program, which is a little bit of an experiment for Udacity.
Deep learning is becoming an important component in autonomous vehicles, and in fact it forms the core of the first term of Udacity’s Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree Program.
If you’re interested in joining the Udacity Self-Driving Car program, you might want to consider the new Deep Learning Nanodegree Foundation Program as a warm-up.
Any student who completes the Deep Learning program is guaranteed admission into the Self-Driving Car program, along with a $100 credit.
