Clarke’s third law states that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. . .
. . .So by extension, cutting-edge technology should be just a little bit magical. Machine learning is often presented from a dense mathematical perspective, which, while necessary for rigorous research, obscures the intuitive nature of machine learning. Andy Kitchen pulls back the curtain on the state of the art in machine learning, using clear and simple explanations along with live, interactive demos to turbocharge your understanding by explaining how (any why) deep learning works, where it came from, what it is capable of, and what the future holds.
Cut through the hype and speculation. Find out how it all works and why you should genuinely be excited and energized to start hacking. It’s time for human learning about machine learning.
Andy Kitchen is a crazy programmer with a big heart. When he was a kid, the first program he ever wrote was an “AI.” At the time, he thought this was the coolest thing ever. Later, he realized it was a chatbot. He is now a researcher and consultant in machine learning, specializing in neural networks. He is currently puzzling over how to teach computers to think about thinking and other metaphysical machinations.
