Build your own neural network – with PHP!
It’s impossible to avoid the hype around machine learning, artificial intelligence, deep learning, and neutral networks. This talk from the International PHP Conference will show you what an artificial neural network (ANN) looks like and how you can get started on building your own using PHP. Follow Vítor Brandao and begin your machine learning journey.
Curious about all the hype around machine learning and artificial intelligence? Heard of “neural networks” and “deep learning”, but confused about what it really means? In this talk, you’ll see what artificial neural networks (ANN) look like and how they can learn. And along the way, you’ll discover how you can build your own ANN – with PHP of course!
Vítor Brandao is a software consultant, born and bred in Portugal but now established in the UK. It’s been a long time since he started tinkering with operating systems and programming languages and started building network applications and small websites. Fast forward to the present, where he continues with just as much passion for problem-solving and technical challenges as when he started, but now he tries to spend most of his time passing the knowledge he acquired throughout the years to other developers through pair-programming, workshops and talks.
His main interests nowadays are domain-driven design, testable code and, more recently, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
