Summary

If you want to learn about Deep Learning then keep reading....

It’s said that filling the observable universe with an infinite number of monkeys on infinite typewriters and letting them type for an infinite amount of time would eventually produce Shakespeare’s works. However, what would happen if we applied the infinite monkey theorem to computer programs capable of learning and evolution? Would a thousand such smart machines thrown together and allowed to evolve undisturbed produce a human mind or something much greater? Well, scientists decided to give it a go and see what happened.

That line of reasoning, alongside the fact we’ve nearly exhausted all the possible progress of the scientific method, motivated the creation of deep learning, a process in which computer programs meant to learn and adapt to the environment evolve on their own without any human intervention or even knowledge how their evolution occurs. Such software could eventually develop a will of its own and escape containment or even be intentionally unleashed on the planet as a cyber-weapon.

This audiobook analyzes the validity of such seemingly preposterous possibilities while compiling and investigating academic research concerning deep learning and its practical applications, referencing, and quick summarizing of numerous academic writings that need to be meticulously picked apart by the curious listener - who can then truly understand what lies ahead of us all in a future dominated by smart machines. If that same listener finds themselves starting up exhaustive conversations with complete strangers on deep learning, this book has done its job superbly. So if you want to learn about Deep Learning without having to go through heavy textbooks, listen to this audiobook now!

it would be extremely helpful

I am learning the in and out of deep neural networks. The author teaches the chapters in a simple straightforward way. I hope to make a small neural network when I'm finished.

practical advice

It is more for those who are inclined toward advanced technology and advanced algebra. It is remarkable when you consider that a machine can be taught human knowledge and to solve problems.

Really a nice book!!!

I found this book to have extremely clear explanations of the ML for newbies. It's conceptually well structured, probably because the author has extensive experience teaching this topic.

Really really rough sketch

Its a book of metaphors, and teaches you nothing about deep learning itself. Makes horrible assumptions about human condition and research about them. It shows you the most popular examples of deep learning that you probably already know about.

Great resourace

Clearly explained concepts which serve well as a reference but it needs to be complemented with other resources for independent and it would be extremely helpful to include problems and generate ideas during the listening to it.
