Python Introduction to Artificial Neural Networks

April 23 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Online via Zoom,

See organizers’ website for details


  1.  A brief history of ANNs (Artificial Neural Networks) and an explanation of the intuition behind them. This part aims to give the audience a conceptual understanding with few mathematical barriers, and no programming requirements.

  2. Step-by-step construction of a very basic ANN. Although the code will be written in Python, it will be intuitive enough for programmers of other languages to follow along.

  3. Using the popular Python library scikit-learn, an ANN will be implemented on a classification problem. High-level libraries reduce the work for a researcher implementing ANN down to tuning a set of parameters, which will be explained in this part.

Prior knowledge: D-Lab’s Python for Everything or R Fundamentals and an interest in machine learning.

Technology requirement: To follow along in parts 2 and 3, it is suggested to install Python via Anaconda. Instructions can be found here.
