Machine Learning is perceived by many as something that is hard to grasp and difficult to learn. In this workshop, we will try to provide a step by step and intuitive guide to what Machine Learning is, and how it works.

Notebook 1: Introduction - What is Machine Learning Anyway?
Notebook 2: Automatic Learning - Introduction to gradient descent
Notebook 3: A little inspiration from the human brain: Neurons, Artificial Neurons and Artificial Neural Networks
Notebook 4: Let's get visual - Training an image classifier using MLP
Notebook 5: It ain't convoluted - An introduction to convolutions and convolutional neural networks
Notebook 6: Putting it all together - Training a deep CNN for image classification
