Publisher's Summary

Ever wonder how all those lists of websites can come up so quickly when you do a Google search? What about how Amazon knows exactly what to recommend to you every time you visit their website? And what about how Netflix can choose a list of shows that suit your taste perfectly?  

A machine capable of learning is already here; it is real, and it is exciting. Many may not be aware of it, but it is already an important role in our lives in many ways. How these computers are capable of doing all these things is the subject of this audiobook.

Using this audiobook as a guide, we’ll come to understand how the art of neural networks has made it possible for computer science to turn in a whole new direction, opening the doors to an amazing new era of technology. 

Throughout this audiobook, you’ll learn:

  • About algorithms and how they work
  • The basic concepts behind neural networks
  • The basic architecture of a neural network
  • The different technical aspects of these programs
  • The different types of neural networks

Even as a novice in this industry, you’ll understand the basics of what neural networks are, how they work, and the many tasks to which you can apply them.

You’ll also learn how they are already used today in our lives and what we can expect to see in the very near future. We’re sure that by the time you reach the end of this audiobook, you’ll be full of ideas and fired up to learn even more in the future.

Very poor overview of Neural Networks

I'm shocked that this book has a few top ratings. It does not offer explanations of neural networks at all, just illustrations of what they are used for. It makes misleading statements that will enlighten no one. At the same time, the reader has weird pauses, mispronunciations and just a very odd pacing and style. For a real explanation, try "The Master Algorithm"--I'm off to re-listen to that one.

Highly Informative

This book caught me from beginning to end. It simplifies so much information that otherwise would be difficult to digest, the fact that it is so visual makes that you quickly understand the information that the author provides. I would like to listen more books by this author. Highly recommend this book.

5 out of 5

This book is specifically geared toward beginners and listeners who have no idea what Python or Tensorflow are, so don’t be intimidated. If you already have some knowledge of these topics, you probably won’t gain much knowledge from this book, as it only covers the basics. For anyone who is interested in neural networks or how it can benefit your everyday life, you should definitely read this book, I think you be glad you did.This is a great book for beginners, teaches the fundamentals of neural networks very well. The author uses standard python libraries and breaks it down so almost any novice can follow. This guide on neural networks is cool and listener friendly.

VERY WELL WRITTEN BOOK

I would have definitely found those chapters to be extremely useful as the entire book was very well organized and easy to follow, even when it started to dive into areas where I needed a little more expertise. Overall, it is without a doubt really well-written and definitely the perfect guide to neural networks for the beginner.

Quick and informative.

This is really informative book. You will get to know the book after finish the book what actual meant to be wrote by the author. Understand How Neural Networks work, Starting with Simple Ideas and thank you for doing so. The concept of artificial intelligence is definitely not a new one. The idea of a machine that can think for itself, make decisions, and plan its own course of actions have been burned into our consciousness from the time we were small children. It was first introduced to us through exciting TV shows as science fiction. I hope you will be able to purchase the book.
