Learning deep learning on Udacity

February 9th, 2017

I am taking Udacity’s deep learning class at https://www.udacity.com/course/deep-learning-nanodegree-foundation–nd101

I have done the first project, creating a neural network with 1 hidden layer (so not deep enough :)) to predict bike demands for a bike rental company. The data are real-life data; so this project is actually has real applications. In a nutshell, we can predict how many bikes will be rented in a given day based on factors such as the weather, whether the day is a holiday, etc.

The same model can also be used in other applications such as predicting number of customers of a clothes shop, or of a website.

My homework for this project can be found here:

Try Stork, a research tool we developed

Stork is a publication alert app developed by us at Stanford. As a researcher we often forget to follow up important publications - and it's practically impossible to search many keywords or researchers' names everyday. Stork can help us to search everyday and notifies us when there are new publications/grants. How Stork helped me?
