Understanding 99% of Artificial Neural Networks:Introduction and Tricks

Overview

There is a deep desire in men, in order to reproduce intelligence and place it in a machine. Neural Networks are an attempt to reproduce the synaptic connections of our brain in a computer. Duplicating the way we use our neurons to think in a machine, it is expected to have a device that could be able to do “intelligent” tasks, the ones reserved just to humans some time ago. Neural Network are a reality now, not a fantasy, and they have been made in order to recognize patterns (a face ,a photograph or a song, are...

Overview

There is a deep desire in men, in order to reproduce intelligence and place it in a machine. Neural Networks are an attempt to reproduce the synaptic connections of our brain in a computer. Duplicating the way we use our neurons to think in a machine, it is expected to have a device that could be able to do “intelligent” tasks, the ones reserved just to humans some time ago. Neural Network are a reality now, not a fantasy, and they have been made in order to recognize patterns (a face ,a photograph or a song, are patterns) and forecast trends. I have seen many books about this subject in my life. All of them are hard to read, and tedious to learn, so I decided to make my own one. For beginner readers, I have tried to use a simple language, in order to be understood by anyone who wants to know about nets. An easy to read, practical and concise work. If you are interested in the brain functions and how can we simulate it in a computer, you’ll get here a different way to penetrate into their secrets.For advanced readers who want to make their own nets, I have included a methodology for building neural networks and complete sample computer source-code with tricks that will save you a lot of time while designing it.

    A look at the world of neural networks for beginners

    This work is aimed at the beginner reader who intends to take a look at the world of neural networks. The author concentrates on Back propagation Networks as the most commonly used architecture. This adds to the book's overall clarity and focus.

    Good information, HORRIBLE editing

    I am assuming that english is not the author's first language and that he was let down by his editors. This is not a critique of the author and the information in this book, but of the editors who did not do their job before it was published. I was excited when I first learned that someone was writing about neural networks and had made it easy to understand. However, I found the many, many grammar and editing errors so distracting that I couldn't finish the book.

    A very recommended book to read

    I am not a professional writer so I all I want to say is that I bought the book and I liked it. It gave me an idea of what neural networks are, and it was useful for me to understand a subject I knew nothing about. A very recommended book to read.

    Cool! A good book to read!

    Many of the books of this subject are difficult to read. I was looking for a book about neural networks to know what they are, but I wanted something easy to understand. This book was the answer to what I wanted.
