Neural Networks from Scratch (in R)


From Medium: This tutorial: “is for those of you with a statistics/econometrics background but not necessarily a machine-learning one and for those of you who want some guidance in building a neural-network from scratch in R to better understand how everything fits (and how i doesn’t).” The author’s motivations for writing the tutorial are: “Understanding (by writing from scratch) the leaky abstractions behind neural-networks dramatically shifted my focus to elements … Continue Reading

Data Science from Scratch: First Principles with Python


From Amazon: “Data science libraries, frameworks, modules, and toolkits are great for doing data science, but they’re also a good way to dive into the discipline without actually understanding data science. In this book, you’ll learn how many of the most fundamental data science tools and algorithms work by implementing them from scratch. If you have an aptitude for mathematics and some programming skills, author Joel Grus will help you get … Continue Reading

DataCamp – Deep Learning in Python


From DataCamp: “Artificial neural networks (ANN) are a biologically-inspired set of models that facilitate computers learning from observed data. Deep learning is a set of algorithms that use especially powerful neural networks. It is one of the hottest fields in data science, and most state-of-the-art results in robotics, image recognition and artificial intelligence (including the famous AlphaGo) use deep learning. In this course, you’ll gain hands-on, practical knowledge of how to … Continue Reading
