Neural nets are one-way artificial intelligence work. The question is how do neural nets work? If you are looking into a career designing artificial intelligences or what to work in engineering machine learning, you are going to need to understand neural networks. Well here are a few videos to help explain how they work. BTW this is a bit complicated and easier to understand if you have taken advanced calculus. Don’t worries if you haven’t taken advanced calculus, you will still gain and understanding of neural networks.
In addition, if you plan to use artificial intelligence or apply it to a particular problem you will not necessarily need to understand how neural networks work. Don’t shy away from using AI just because you don’t understand the mechanics. Do you drive a car? You don’t need to understand internal combustion engines in order to operate a motor vehicle.
