Deeplearning Mantra

by Arunoda Susiripala.

Deeplearning is awesome. I bet you've seen cool (and controversial) things like:
So have you ever tried to learn Deeplearning?
  • Oh! It involves advanced Maths.
  • Got confused with complicated jargon like "activation functions", "gradient descent", "Relu", and "neural networks".
  • I need a GPU, and they are crazy expensive.
I was like you. But fast.ai has changed it.
Here, I am sharing my experience with you.
Learning Deeplearning is like learning any other technology.
(It's just different from what you are familiar with.)
You don't need to deal with Maths and algorithms at the beginning.
(Frameworks and libraries do those things for us.)
