Neural Networks and Deep Learning

Neural Networks and Deep Learning by Michael Nielsen.

From the webpage:

Neural Networks and Deep Learning is a free online book. The book will teach you about:

  • Neural networks, a beautiful biologically-inspired programming paradigm which enables a computer to learn from observational data
  • Deep learning, a powerful set of techniques for learning in neural networks

Neural networks and deep learning currently provide the best solutions to many problems in image recognition, speech recognition, and natural language processing. This book will teach you the core concepts behind neural networks and deep learning.

The book is currently an incomplete beta draft. More chapters will be added over the coming months. For now, you can:

Michael starts off with a task that we all mastered as small children, recognizing hand written digits. Along the way, you will learn not just the mechanics of how the characters are recognized but why neural networks work the way they do.

Great introductory material to pass along to a friend.
