Interested : (-) - Registered : (-)


You may have heard of neural networks - mysterious artificial brains that power titans like Google & Netflix. You may even have tried to build your own but were stymied by scads of equations and other strange symbols. Fear no more, fellow human! You’ll pick up the neural lingo in no time with this talk. Learn about the building blocks of neural networks and how they connect together to build a data structure that learns. There will be nothing more complicated than addition and multiplication.
