Deep Learning algorithms have become unprecedentedly transformative across industry verticals & are now the state-of-the-art across applications as diverse as image classification, natural language processing, generation of visual art, & game-playing. Almost unknown a few years ago, Deep Learning today powers countless everyday services from Tesla's Autopilot to Siri's voice recognition, & from Google Inbox's suggested replies to superhuman ability at the elaborate boardgames. Via analogy to biological neurons & the human brain, this talk is an introduction to Deep Learning. It features interactive demos & example code from the leading open-source Deep Learning library, TensorFlow, & its high-level API, Keras.
