This course offers a top-down approach to the study of deep neural network-based solutions, beginning with introducing basic concepts and applications. Course participants are then guided through the implementation of common architectures and corresponding training and prediction procedures, which includes a simple environment setup and interactive participation using Anaconda Jupyternotebooks. The underlying principles are then reviewed to provide the foundation necessary for deeper understanding and interrogation of these large, complex mathematical models. We conclude this short course by revisiting notable applications to discuss lessons learned.
