In this course, you’ll survey numerical approaches to the continuous mathematics used in computer vision and robotics—with an emphasis on machine and deep learning. Our focus will be on machine learning’s underlying mathematical methods, including computational linear algebra and optimization. Special topics will include automatic differentiation via backward propagation, momentum methods from ordinary differential equations, CNNs, and RNNs.
