Books on Deep Learning:

  • Deep Learning Book by Ian Goodfellow
  • Neural Networks and Deep Learning by Michael Nielsen
  • Computer Vision is covered by most, if not all, of the deep learning resources
  • Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) are the basis of neural network based models that solve tasks related to sequences such as machine translation or speech recognition. Must read: Karpathy’s post and Chris Olah’spost on LSTMs
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP): CS224d is an introduction to NLP with deep learning.
  • Reinforcement Learning: videos of David Silver on RL Andrej Karpathy’s post on deep reinforcement learning
