Deep learning neural networks have driven breakthrough results in computer vision, speech processing, machine translation, and reinforcement learning. As a result, neural networks have become an essential part of any data scientist’s toolkit. This video introduces neural networks created with Python and MXNet, a flexible and efficient deep learning library. The course explains what neural networks are, why they are powerful algorithms, and why they have a particular structure. It begins by introducing the core components of a neural network (i.e., nodes, weights, biases, activation functions, and layers) before showing you how to build a neural network in MXNet that solves a classic classification problem: identifying handwritten digits from grayscale images. Along the way, you'll learn about the backpropagation algorithm and how neural networks learn. Prerequisites include a basic understanding of Python, linear algebra, and calculus.
