Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 1 & 2, 2016session

A math-free introduction to Neural Networks

Have you ever wanted to learn about the tech that powers Google but are allergic to dense equations? This is the talk for you! Learn how to build your own neural network with nothing more than addition & multiplication.

About This Session

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.
