Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium Side A, room 1464
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. Please note that this material overlaps significantly with the material in... Read More »
