Deep learning is the leading approach to many problems in computer vision, speech recognition, NLP, and other areas. In this presentation, I will give a broad overview of deep learning. I will discuss the key reasons for its success, and the important role that scalability plays. I will also describe unsupervised learning approaches to deep learning--such as the "Google cat" result, in which a neural network learned to recognize cats by watching unlabeled YouTube videos--and discuss why this might become increasingly important. Finally, I will discuss recent trends in deep learning, and some possible future applications.
Andrew Ng is Chief Scientist of Baidu; Chairman and Co-founder of Coursera; and an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University. In 2011 he led the development of Stanford University’s main MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) platform and also taught an online Machine Learning class to over 100,000 students, leading to the founding of Coursera. Ng’s goal is to give everyone access to a great education, for free. Today, Coursera partners with top universities to offer online courses. With over 9 million students, it is the world's largest MOOC platform. Ng also works on machine learning, with an emphasis on deep learning. He had founded and led the “Google Brain” project, which developed massive-scale deep learning algorithms. This resulted in the “cat” result, in which a massive neural network with 1 billion parameters learned from unlabeled YouTube videos to detect cats. More recently, he is working to build up Baidu Research, which is developing applications of large scale deep learning to computer vision, speech, NLP, and other areas. Recent awards include being named to the Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world; Fortune 40 under 40; and being named by students as one of the top 10 professors across Stanford University.
iquely best for youth? A When some of a course's 9 minute audio training modules viralise around millions of youth who then collaborate round job creation- or progressing investments in millennium goals from the bottom up
-see eg MOOCyunus as several thousand entrepreneurs at Skoll 10th world championship cheering such an idea
reference- search how both daphne koller as designer of coursera and sal khan as designer of khanacademy see the 9 minute training module as the most impactful feature the world of education has ever been blessed to use
1.1 coursera has many features that may help to start up such a viralisation- also the fact that several hundreds of thousand people may be action learning live around a best for world's coursera makes these feature possibilities very different from uses you may heave encountered where barely any audience is coming back again and again
2.0 students of coursera are asked to sign a content secrecy pledge so as not to spoil the course's surprise impact on future course-takers - regarding open value multipliers, this is a relative weakness of coursera compared with khanacademy's 24/7 free learning access but it does help to ensure that you get that year's most motivated youth signing up-
2.1 Secrecy pledges also make it difficult to discuss what a best for youth coursera looks like - we hope that Jeff Borland at University of Melbourne doesn't mind us showing this mock up

3MOCK-up of a best for youth Coursera
The picture below comprises to the main features students can linkin while the course is alive- also part of a post I made to the forum- and 3 ads to open learning I would love to post if future coursera ever take ads that support youth open education revolution

Curriculum is first to be hosted by alumni of Soros http://www.ineteconomics.org - promises to fit with total rethink of economics from ground-up. Specific announcementhttp://ineteconomics.org/blog/institute/free-course-economics-money-and-banking-produced-institute-new-economic-thinking
Host of this curriculum Perry Mehrling is author of The New Lombard Street - a title that refers to Lombard Street by Walter Bagehot - in many insiders view the greatest economist ever to edit The Economist. Of course, greatest is a system value design judgement. Back In 1843 the purpose and values of The Economist were defined as mediating leading decision-makers of The Industrial revolution with the goals of ending hunger and ending capital abuse of youth.

Start of Mehrling speech at George Soros hosted event on the crisis
George Soros with his super bubble hypothesis has perhaps the most expansive sense of what has ended but his analysis is of but a piece
As a historian of monetary and financial economics, I recognise this entire line of commentary as continuous with the great tradition of British central banking thought going back at least to Watler Bagehot's Lombard Street. In this regard, I would note Ralph Hawtry's emphasis on the inherent instability of credit - a phrase he used to emphasise the weakness of self-regulatory forces in the money market and the consequent need for active central bank management . Today's new twist is the suggestion that central banks have become part fo the problem by helping inflate bubbles: by keeping interest rates too low and then by preventing the subsequent collapse from claaring out the bad credit so that each subsequent bubble gets built on shakier financial foundations than the previous one. In this talk I would like to observe mistaken monetary theory- the problem I suggest is that central bankers have been listening too much to academics rather than their own rather different intellectual tradition.. I will refer to this indigenous practitioners intellectual tradition as The Money View to distinguish it for the academic economics view and the academic finance view both of which determinedly abstract from the monetary plumbing behind the wall in order to focus on other matters ,,, more athttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYkGUBgxDOM
There is a widespread sense that the crisis of the last 2 years marks the end of one era and the beginning of another even though there remains debate about what exactly has ended and even more about what will replace it. http://normanmacrae.ning.com/forum/topics/wiki-of-first-mooc-by-alumn-of-soros-inetecononics-org/

t go if sustainability is to be the 21st century
my feeling is west coast megaplayers of internet are not going to lead this but we still need to bridge with google- the job creating educators i have so far found/trust most come from bangladesh, india, japan, china, south africa, kenya .. and MIT as the one main western hub (more specifically google africa's strategy is led by the kenyan lady who invented ushahidi a great use of it and she is now in s africa linked into mandela-branson-blecher-free university models which are as exciting as anything that the world of education has to offer in 40 years of searching -when you bridge kenya and bangladesh you get the world's most exciting village labs of cashless banking -someone could remind obama that one parent came from kenya and the other replicated bangladeshi microcredit as it used to exist in 80s in indonesia- if anyone was parented to value bottom up usaid it was he- moreover the most exciting curriculum for pre-teen financial literacy was invented in an indian orphanage. has been transfreered to 90 countries with BRAC the number 1 instructor)
friends of The Economist's Norman Macrae, world class brands experts and I i see facebook as the net generation's number 1 enemy of media and education getting smarter as i believe it is all about mass media taking over - dumbing down - what my family's life work has argued could be the way the net generation could be free to be 10 times more productive by escaping all the command and control spin of mass media
i also assembling the peer to peer content of smart curriculum as the most urgent race now that MOOCS are popping up everywhere http://youth10000education.blogspot.com planetMOOC.com- my friends including some of those cc'd are searching the world for whom to invite first to assemblemicroeducationsummit - what methods bring job creation back to the whole education chain and also invest in youth co-producing the most exciting goals collaboration and smart media could facilitate
there's a catch 22 to those of us who want to linking job-designed apps but are not tecchies - there are so many tech tools where I wish there was one hi-trust portal showing how ordinary non-tech people can make best job creating or collaboration use of the tool in the opposite way of being commanded and controlled that most ad-led media does- if only there was one portal where eg best cases of how to were edited by and for all of us who need to learn how to create jobs with new media- ultimately i believe we have to get the right sorts of people and peer networks converging on microeducationsummit before we will see how to start such a portal and keep mooc design -and so the most economical of education systems - open for job creation
to see where education could have got to if wealthier nations educators had enjoyed The Economists' first 40 years of entrepreneurial revolution dialogues - see the new zealand movement www.thelearningweb.net which has co-partnered with 10 million chinese parents -also see paper from the inaugural adma smith scholars edited journal of social business,

A lot of fancy terms have been created in last quarter centiry - eg knowledge manahgement- that turn out to be the exact opposite of what entrepreneurial revolutionaries need to champion round maps of learning learning if we are to celebrate the millennium of a millions tome more collaboration technology
In researchging MOOC - only those who get the 9 minute training module as the molecule round which to integrate futires of learning and job creation are worth linking in to first. We aim to make that case in other documents
In this thread we put some quotes from people we wish we could link in now to learning learning because we need all the inspiration we can get to linkin this greatest entrepreneurial and sustainability challenge of all time
Entrepreneurial Revolution - an investigation started at The Economist in the 1970s as to whether intergenerational investments in future systems would empower the net generation to be exponentially sustainable. Surveys of the next 40 years asked questions of 2015-2025 such as:
Would the global financial system be designed to sustain or collapse local communities?
Would 2015-2025 be the under 30s most exciting and productive time to be alive as they linked in sustainability of the human race. Would the parts of the Western hemisphere that advanced the industrial revolution's empires demand that its politicians, professions and academics "happily get out of the way of the sustainability generation being led by the half of youth living within 3000 miles of Beijing"?
POP -Preferential Option Poor
Would every community's most trusted practitioners be educator, health servant and banker.
