Labor Day Reading and Academic Year Kick-Off

Deep Learning / Machine Learning Reading and Study Guide:   Several of you have been asking for guided reading lists. This makes sense.   Your Starting Point for Neural Networks, Deep Learning, and Machine Learning   Your study program (reading and code) depends on where you are. Starting out (High-grass country; St. Louis to Alcove Springs): Basic neural networks and deep learning; architecture for common networks, such as CNNs (convolutional neural networks); learning rules and architecture design. Well on the…

Neural Networks and Python Code: Be Careful with the Array Indices!

Neural Networks and Python Code: Be Careful with the Array Indices!

Our Special Topics class on Deep Learning (Northwestern University, Master of Science in Predictive Analytics program, Winter, 2017) starts off with very basic neural networks: the backpropagation learning method applied to the classic X-OR problem. I’m writing Python code to go with this class, and the result by the end of the quarter should be five-to-six solid pieces of code, involving either the backpropagation or Boltzmann machine learning algorithm, with various network configurations. The following figure shows the dependence of…
