Intro to Neural Networks

Enrollment in this course is by invitation only

About This Course

This is the first course in the self-paced bootcamp. This course will be covering all important background knowledge that needs to be covered before you can start training your very first neural networks. This course won't touch the Lit app yet. Strict memorization of the content provided here isn't required, feel free to come back to the material covered here in the future.

We will start out with a high level overview of Artifical Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning. From there we will dive a bit deeper into important concepts of Deep Learning, including Features, Neurons, Neural Networks, and Training.

The course is self paced, and you can go through the material at the pace that works best for you. There will be links to open office hours in the course, where you can drop in as desired to ask any questions about material covered.


No requirements needed - just a willingness to learn the material.
