This book is intended primarily for readers who already have at least a basic knowledge of neural networks but are interested in learning about, experimenting with, and perhaps even programming deep belief nets. The salient features of this book are the following:
The book provides motivation for the deep belief net paradigm.
It presents the most important equations for the most common deep belief net components and justifies them to a modest degree.
The book provides training, execution, and analysis algorithms for common deep belief net paradigms in language-independent ...
