As far as I know, no. There was a rumor saying late August, but I’ve no idea where that came from.
My best guess is that they’re stuck on sorting out access to GPUs. There was some talk about partnering with Nvidia and I’m guessing arranging that kind of partnership and integrating it with coursera’s hub is non-trivial.
Edit: Maybe that’s just wishful thinking, though.
That’s what I was thinking too - hoping to get the entire thing done within a month to save on some cash.
I’ve started taking the course, and so far (2 weeks in), it’s python + numpy. There is a lot of math, but he emphasizes that it’s not as important as the ability to implement the code. It’s not really necessary to understand the math to be able to implement the programming assignments, as long as you know how to translate the equations he provides into numpy.
The new official dates for the new courses are early October for Course 4 Convolutional Neural Networks and “soon after” for Course 5 Sequence Models. Info came via mail.
