Gaining background in Machine Learning and Recurrent Neural Networks

First, you need to understand the methods we are going to use to solve cool problems this summer. This project is under the umbrella of Machine Learning as we are trying to predict the labels of time series data. We are investigating a Deep Learning algorithm called Recurrent Neural Networks.

The topics you need to have a strong grasp on are:

Reading List



All of our programming will be Python. If you are unfamiliar with Python, LEARNING PYTHON IS YOUR FIRST TASK. Try this tutorial. Our preprocessing will be done using NumPy and deep learning algorithms will be implemented using PyTorch.

Here’s how to get started:
