If the math used in AI seems intimidating, this tutorial is for you. Rachel Thomas walks you through working with arrays of different dimensions and how broadcasting handles data dimensions. As a fun application of linear algebra, you’ll learn how to create a deep neural network from scratch and use it to recognize handwritten digits. You’ll also gain hands-on experience with PyTorch, the Python framework for GPU computing developed by Facebook.
