A Primer on Neural Networks

I'm sure you've at least heard about neural networks, but maybe you wonder what exactly is a Neural Network. This talk will take you gently into the machine learning branch of statistics with neural networks. With examples and simple breakdowns about the math involved that anyone can follow.

Topics and Demos Include:

• What is a Neural Network?
• What makes them so powerful?
• How are Neural Networks being used in the field?
• What is an activation function?
• What is Gradient Descent? ^ An Intro To Tensorflow
• Demo: XOR Gate
• Demo: Image Recognition

To follow along with the talk the only math you will need to know are the basics: Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide, Average, and Sum. Everything else very easy to follow.

As a passionate technologist it is my greatest joy to build solutions that bring organizations value not for 1-5 years, but that are built to flex and grow over the demands of the next 50+ years. I have been fortunate to work with some of the best minds in enterprise-scale data, services, dev-ops, BI, and people management. My knowledge is the culmination of aprox 20 of the best professionals in these fields spanning more than 100 years of expertise. I am in a unique position for a developer to be as business savvy as I am technically gifted.

My goal is to continue to work with the best, and to continue striving to be the best technologist I can.
