Deep Learning for Self-Driving Cars by Lex Fridman

Deep Learning for Self-Driving Cars ( latest version 2018 ).It’s an introduction to the practice of deep learning through the applied theme of building a self-driving car.

Instructors are working on devoloping cars that understand environment inside and outside the car.

Terminologies used in the lecture:

  • DL = NN (Deep Learning = Neural Nets).
  • DL is a subset of ML (Machine Learning).
  • MLP: Multi layer Perceptron.
  • DNN: Deep Neural Networks.
  • RNN: Recurrent Neural Networks.
  • LSTM: Long Short Term Memory.
  • CNN: Convolutinal Neural Networks.
  • DBN: Deep Belief Networks.
