Into Neural Networks! Part 1

Keras is a library that makes machine learning easy to run and train without knowing too much of the math behind it. It has many  tutorials including an excellent howto by Egghead.io, Pyimagesearch and of course the official documentation and books…

…but what if you want to look into the details of how it works? Neural networks are a series of functions that are adjusted over time, and we can “see” what happens in a simple example. Continue reading “Into Neural Networks! Part 1”
