Upcoming Talk: Deep Learning with Artificial Neural Networks

Added on by Jon Krohn.

Next week, I'll be giving an introductory, public lecture on the topics I'm most passionate about -- Deep Learning and AI -- at Wilfrid Laurier University. If you're in Waterloo, Ontario, I'd love to share it with you live -- on January 4th at 4pm. Click through the title for details.
