Math for neural networks
Neural networks are more complex models and they are also pretty exciting. When I started to learn Data Science I jumped right into implementing one with no idea how they worked and what I was doing. All I knew was that my code ran and the results were not so promising. I found myself getting a bit frustrated and decided to take a step back and do the work (that is learn the theory with the help of my Thesis supervisor). This week I will provide links to materials that can help you understand how neural networks work starting with the content produced by me.
My success story
After learning all these basics I developed a solution to predict acts of violence and protest in South Africa with a high degree of accuracy using neural networks. Have a read through here:
