The first chapter of my new book about neural networks and deep learning is now freely available online.  These are powerful techniques which have made remarkable recent progress on difficult problems in image recognition, speech recognition, and natural language processing.  Fun stuff!

The first chapter of the book is now up, and explains the basic ideas of neural nets, shows how they can be used to solve a challenging toy problem (handwritten digit recognition), and gives a taste of deep learning.

If you've read this far, I hope you'll consider supporting my Indiegogo campaign for the book:

I've started a blog. So far it has been mostly about programming so some of my circles might find it interesting.
