T10 Introduction to Neural Networks Using C#


1:30 pm - 2:45 pm

Level: Intermediate

James McCaffrey

Research Software Engineer, Microsoft Research


In this informal, but in-depth presentation, Dr. James McCaffrey from Microsoft Research will explain exactly what neural networks are and describe the types of problems NNs can, and cannot solve. You will leave this presentation with all the information you need to create a working neural network prediction system. Topics covered include: neural network architecture, data normalization, activation functions, loss functions, gradient descent training, and model overfitting.

You will learn:

  • What types of problems neural networks can solve
  • How neural networks work
  • How to implement a neural network using raw C#
