Getting started with neural networks

Who we are

We are a group of students from the department of Informatics and Applied Mathematics at Yerevan State University. In 2014, inspired by successes of neural nets in various fields, especially by GoogLeNet’s excellent performance in ImageNet 2014, we decided to dive into the topic of neural networks. We study calculus, combinatorics, graph theory, algebra and many other topics in the university but we learn nothing about machine learning. Just a few students take some ML courses from Coursera or elsewhere.
