discussion on how we can use statistical methods to measure and improve the efficacy of http://freeCodeCamp.com
The aforementioned workshop was REALLY productive, almost a class to understand basic Neural Networks, with a lot of feedback and me lucky to get into a very good team (everyone in teams of 3), with lots of good questions and contributions. It was more than just to go through the exercise.
I am in position to help you out with this one, so let me know if you will give it a go.
The people organising that meetup are preparing another one in a form of a hackathon. I already managed to know the topic ( ;) ), so I will be studying for that day. The next time we will do some convolutional nn.
One person in my team was using this book: Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning by C. M. Bishop. Although topic-based, it seemed a very good book with a lot about neural networks.
