To be a master in Deep Learning topics, one should know tensor multiplications deeply. Pytorch workflow is already designed to serve this purpose and in my opinion, this path may beneficial.

Basics of TensorsImportance in Machine Learning and Deep Learning

Deep Learning is based on all about matrix multiplication as it is known. Artificial neural networks are calculated through tensor operations, particularly matrix multiplication. Well, what is the difference between matrices and tensors?

A matrix is a 2-dimensional array, meaning it has a row and a column, and can be considered a 2nd-order tensor. On the other hand, a tensor has a number of dimensions and will have higher orders.

Basically;

0 Rank tensors are Scalars1st Rank tensors are 1-D arrays2nd Rank tensors are 2-D arrays (A matrix)nth Rank tensors are n-D arrays (A Tensor)

Neural Networks may be calculated using different data formats, such as numerical, text, geospatial, image, audio, and video data. Dealing with… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
