Slides from Portland Machine Learning meetup, April 13th.
Abstract: You've heard all the cool tech companies are using them, but what are Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) good for and what is convolution anyway? For that matter, what is a Neural Network? This talk will include a look at some applications of CNNs, an explanation of how CNNs work, and what the different layers in a CNN do. There's no explicit background required so if you have no idea what a neural network is that's ok.
