Learning AI if You Suck at Math  – Part 5  –  Deep Learning and Convolutional Neural Nets in Plain English!

Today, we’re going to write our own Python image recognition program. To do that, we’ll explore a powerful deep learning architecture called a deep convolutional neural network (DCNN). Convnets are the workhorses of computer vision. They power everything from self-driving cars to Google’s image search.  So why are neural networks so powerful? One key reason: They do automatic pattern recognition. So what’s pattern recognition and why do we care if it’s automatic? Patterns come in many forms but let’s take two critical examples: The features that define a physical form.

Learning AI if You Suck at Math -Part 4- Tensors Illustrated (with Cats!)

The problem is most guides talk about tensors as if you already understand all the terms they’re using to describe the math. So what is a tensor and why does it flow? At its core it’s a data container. Mostly it contains numbers. Sometimes it even contains strings, but that’s rare. There are multiple sizes of tensors. Let’s go through the most basic ones that you’ll run across in deep learning

Learning AI if You Suck at Math — Part Two — Practical Projects

If you’re a developer or sys-admin you probably already use a lot of libraries and frameworks that you know little about. You don’t have to understand the inner workings of web-scraping to use curl. The same is true with AI. There are a number of frameworks and projects that make it easy to get going fast without needing a data science Ph.D. The math helps you feel confident about what’s going on behind the scenes. If you want to start using AI, you can do that today. Let’s get started with some practical projects.

Learning AI if You Suck at Math — Part 1 

You’re fascinated with AI. Maybe you’d love to dig deeper and get an image recognition program running in TensorFlow or Theano? Perhaps you’re a developer or systems architect and you know computers incredibly well but there’s just one little problem: You suck at math. That’s all right! Here are some little secrets that help you get rolling fast. No matter how you cut it, AI solves big, intractable problems that have eluded us for decades. AI is hot for good reasons.
