Updated with Google’s TensorFlow: Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks, and Deep Learning

**Note: there are links all over this post. Every link is unique, even if it has the same words as the link. So, click away for some awesome additional information! Some are amazingly informative!** **Note #2: This is a work in progress. The amount of time this article took led me to simply provide links near the end rather than explaining what the links basically "said". I'm going to fine-tune this over time. This could actually become a book; I'd love to do it!** Artificial Intelligence (AI), Neural Networks and Deep Learning are fascinating topics to be sure. More interesting to me, however, answers the question "How did we get where we are today, and, where 'are we' today?" This post is about all 3 technologies, the pioneers that led to where we are today with these technologies, where we "are" today with these technologies; along with some correlations to one of my other favorite technologies, Augmented Reality. The most inspiring and persistent AI revolutionaries is a … [Read more...]
