1. Introduction to Neural Networks and Deep Learning
In this chapter, we will cover the basics of neural networks and how to set up a deep learning programming environment. We will also explore the common components and essential operations of a neural network . We will conclude this chapter with an exploration of a trained neural network created using TensorFlow. By the end of this chapter, you will be able to train a neural network.
This chapter is about understanding what neural networks can do rather than the finer workings of deep learning. For this reason, we will not cover the mathematical concepts underlying deep learning algorithms but will describe the essential pieces that make up a deep learning system ...
