Stepping through theory, background, and code examples

Neural networks have gained incredible attention over the last decade (despite being around for much longer), and seem to have made incredible progress in the eyes of the public. This is especially true for the huge language models that seem to have gained all the media’s attention.

While discussion about deep learning seems to be everywhere now, I also have the strong impression that this whole field of artificial intelligence appears to be a huge black-box topic.

Deep learning is impressive but no magic. In this post, I will go over a few theoretical aspects of what a neural network is and how it can be used to achieve great things, such as predicting values and sequences (e.g., like a language model) or classifying images with just a few lines of code.

To start with the theory, a neural network is a computational model that is inspired by the structure and function of biological neurons — this may sound incredibly theoretical, but the only purpose of… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
