Welcome to fast.ai's 7 week course, Practical Deep Learning For Coders, Part 1, taught by Jeremy Howard (Kaggle's #1 competitor 2 years running, and founder of Enlitic). Learn how to build state of the art models without needing graduate-level math—but also without dumbing anything down. Oh and one other thing... it's totally free!
We'll meet, do introductions and discuss Lesson 1: Image recognition (http://course.fast.ai/lessons/lesson1.html). Please work through what you can from the lesson and come share your findings.
