Ever wondered what a neural network really is, how it works, or how to implement one? Well, I did, and that is why I tried implementing one. And I failed. Some years later, I tried again, and it worked! And it was amazing! Now, I just want to help do it yourself, so that can take a peek behind the curtains of this world of machine learning, deep learning, and all those buzzwords.
In this short book, I will take you through the journey of implementing a neural network from scratch, and then we will use these networks you created to perform machine learning tasks. We will also play around with them and so all sorts of really interesting machine learning and deep learning experiments.
The book explains you the things that are needed, step-by-step, and gives you a reference implementation that you can find on GitHub.
By the time you are done with the book, you will have at your disposal a simple neural network framework that actually works, and that you have already used to explore interesting concepts from the worlds of machine learning and deep learning.
By the way, if you are unsure whether or not this book is for you, you can always read its chapters for free on my blog.
