In this meetup we will focus on the basics of neural networks and in particular on multi-layer perceptrons.
If you are interested in doing some hacking please bring your laptops. We will help those that are interested in getting their hands dirty with some python to build a feed-forward artificial neural network for classifying digits from the MNIST handwritten digits dataset.
If you are not interested in hacking at the meetup no worries the meetup should still be educational and all the source code will be made available under the GPL on our Github repository.
