Why is neural networks covered in this course?

Neural networks is a part of Deep learning , so why it is being covered in ML specialisation?

NN’s with one hidden layer are a standard machine learning method.

Multi-layer NN’s are typical of Deep Learning.

@Kavalanche there is also a really, really ‘old-skool’ name for this and that is the ‘Perceptron’. That has been around since the 50’s/60’s and falls well in the territory of traditional ML. I believe even certain of the concepts therein underlie the thinking behind the SVM.
