Introduction to Neural Networks

Tuesday, September 3, 2019 - 4:00pm

David Carlson, PhD

The basic concepts of neural networks are introduced, with a focus on intuition. The simpler and widely used logistic regression model is introduced first, and from this the neural network is introduced as a generalization. Multilayered neural networks are introduced, yielding deep learning and its applications. From this session, participants will be introduced to what a neural network is, and how it may be used in practice.This session is part of the Duke + Data Science (+DS) program.
