Part 4 – Better, faster, stronger

In this article we will build upon the basic neural network presented in part 3. We will add a few gems which will improve the network. Small changes with great impact. The concepts we will meet, such as Initialization, Mini batches, Parallelization, Optimizers and Regularization are no doubt things you would run into quite quickly when learning about neural networks. This article will give a guided tour-by-example.

 

Part 3 – Implementation in Java

In this article you will see how the theories presented in previous two articles can be implemented in easy to understand java code. The full neural network implementation can be downloaded, inspected in detail, built upon and experimented with.
