Have you heard people talking about machine learning but only have a fuzzy idea of what that means? Are you tired of nodding your way through conversations with co-workers? Let’s change that! This guide is for anyone who is curious about machine learning but has no idea where to start.
Using Machine Learning to generate Super Mario Maker levels
Learn how about neural networks and how recurrent neural networks can be used to general new data based on existing data.
Deep Learning and Convolutional Neural Networks
Learn how Convolutional Neural Networks work and how they are used to recognize objects in photographs.
Modern Face Recognition with Deep Learning
Let’s learn how modern face recognition works! But just recognizing your friends would be too easy. We can push this tech to the limit to solve a more challenging problem — telling Will Ferrell (famous actor) apart from Chad Smith (famous rock musician)!
Language Translation with Deep Learning and the Magic of Sequences
Sequence-to-sequence learning is a very powerful technique that revolutionizing language translation. After we see how it is used for translation, we’ll also learn how the exact same algorithm can be used to write AI chat bots and describe pictures.
How to do Speech Recognition with Deep Learning
But speech recognition has been around for decades, so why is it just now hitting the mainstream? The reason is that deep learning finally made speech recognition accurate enough to be useful outside of carefully controlled environments. Let’s learn how to do speech recognition with deep learning!
Abusing Generative Adversarial Networks to Make 8-bit Pixel Art
Deep Convolutional Generative Adversarial Networks (or DCGANs for short) are one of the most exciting new areas of machine learning research. DCGANs are able to hallucinate original photo-realistic pictures by using a clever combination of two deep neural networks that compete with each other. Let’s use generative models to do something a bit more silly — make artwork for 8-bit video games!
How to Intentionally Trick Neural Networks
Almost as long as programmers have been writing computer programs, computer hackers have been figuring out ways to exploit those programs. Malicious hackers take advantage of the tiniest bugs in programs to break into systems, steal data and generally wreak havoc.
How to break a CAPTCHA system in 15 minutes with Machine Learning
Everyone hates CAPTCHAs — those annoying images that contain text you have to type in before you can access a website. Let’s hack the world’s most popular Wordpress CAPTCHA Plug-in with machine learning!
