Deep learning. What? How? Why? -- How to use deep learning to win Kaggle competitions (+Video).

I explained how to use deep learning effectively, what is needed in order to get your models to work. These are the steps, which I often find missing by a lot of people.

Hoi Jonas,

Ik wou je graag nog even bedanken voor de inspirerende presentatie van vandaag tijdens de data science meetup. Het was veruit de beste presentatie die ik me kan herinneren en ik heb enkele concrete idee├źn opgedaan om toe te passen in de Kaggle competitie waar ik momenteel deel aan neem. Na 5 weken sta ik er trouwens eerste en mocht dat zo blijven is dat grotendeels te danken aan jouw schitterende vertoning, bedankt!

Groeten,

Tom
