About Master Class and SIT Programming School

Workshop: Neural Networks in Simple Terms – The First Step in Computer Science

Why does Google ask you to mark traffic lights on images? Can a neural network write a joke or a script for a TV show? Can you trick a neural network?

With the SIT Programming School teacher, you will gain insights into what neural networks are and why they are needed. Plus, you will get the opportunity to create a neural network that can learn to play and win a mathematical game without writing a single line of code.
