Chapter 12. Implementing a Multilayer Artificial Neural Network from Scratch

As you may know, deep learning is getting a lot of attention from the press and is without any doubt the hottest topic in the machine learning field. Deep learning can be understood as a set of algorithms that were developed to train artificial neural networks with many layers most efficiently. In this chapter, you will learn the basic concepts of artificial neural networks so that you will be well-equipped for the following chapters, which will introduce advanced Python-based deep learning libraries and Deep Neural Network (DNN) architectures that are particularly well-suited for image and text analyses.

The topics that we will cover in this chapter are as follows:

  • Getting ...
