A general neural net is shown in Figure 7.1. This is a “deep learning” neural net because it has multiple internal layers.

Figure 7.1 Deep learning neural net.

A convolutional neural network is a pipeline with multiple stages. The images go into one end and the probability that the image is a cat comes out the other. There are three types of layers:

  • Convolutional layers (hence the name)

  • Pooling layers

  • Fully connected layers ...
