Fun with Neural Networks in Spark 2015 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2015)
Ever wonder how computer scientists build programs that recognize handwriting or identify faces in photographs? Neural networks are a tool that modern computer science uses to solve these problems. In this class, we’ll be talking about how a neural network works and why it’s such an effective method. We’ll also build our own neural network and use it to tackle the problem of object recognition.
