This is a really great introductory video on Keras and how simple it makes calling complex deep learning libraries like Tensorflow. The 13 year old author builds a great deep learning model in under 100 lines of code.

I do some questions w.r.t. to the AUC score being …

A really good technical introduction to deep learning from @AndrewYNg's Coursera that touches on stocastic gradient descent for optimization, which is really cool in my book. Sample processes are provided on the original article but I think you should just take the Coursera. :)

The following problems are taken from …

Why is Tensorflow so slow?

This article cracks me up.

Let's be real: tensorflow is more like 5 frameworks awkwardly fused together than a single framework - there are so many ways to do 2d convolutions, in tf.layers, the "Dense" layer is different than the "dense" one - how are they different? only one way to …

When I first self-taught myself 'data science,' there wasn't a lot on the Internet to help me. I spent years cobbling information together reading what I could find about it. Now, there's a plethora of Data Science and Machine Learning education available. There's forums, open source libraries and much much …
