Mathematical foundations of Neural Networks

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

I will take a specific use case of deep learning and then show how to build a simple neural network to solve the problem. I will dig deep into the inner workings of the neural network. Specifically, I will be taking each component of the neural network one-by-one (forward propagation, back propagation, activation function, regularization, loss function, optimize, metrics, etc) and explain what mathematical concepts are involved in each component (linear algebra, multivariable calculus, etc). I will then explain how these concepts are used at the mathematical level (at the level of tensors). The focus of the talk will mainly be at the mathematical level and not at the high level of built-in libraries.
