Machine Learning Driven Programming: A New Programming for a New World – High Scalability –

Wednesday, July 6, 2016 at 8:56AM If Google were created from scratch today, much of it would be learned, not coded. Around 10% of Google’s 25,000 developers are proficient in ML; it should be 100% — Jeff Dean Like the weather, everybody complains about programming, but nobody does anything about it.

Crash Course in Recurrent Neural Networks for Deep Learning – Machine Learning Mastery

There is another type of neural network that is dominating difficult machine learning problems that involve sequences of inputs called recurrent neural networks. Recurrent neural networks have connections that have loops, adding feedback and memory to the networks over time. This memory allows this type of network to learn and generalize across sequences of inputs …
