Abstract

Recently deep learning has shattered all records when it comes to machine learning. Unfortunately, many developers never harness the power of this machine learning technique. In this short talk you will gain a basic understanding of the two most simple types of layers: the dense, and convolutional layer. Take the first steps in your journey to deep learning, no math required.
