In this session we’re going to cover the basics of Neural nets. implementing them ourselves end to end in Flax.
We’ll talk about
The mathematics of the model
How parameters are estimated
All the pieces in estimation shown in code, specifically in Flax and other libraries
This is a coding heavy session were I’ll be going through as notebook.
If you’re like to preread here are my recommendations
For code check out Flax

If you want to get super in depth
The CS231N course from Stanford is a classic. You’ll see this reference many times.
Session 2 Livestream link is up! See you 8 AM PST on the 14th

Has anyone been able to create a conda environment to run the examples locally? I have installed
pandas without issues, but then
jupyter collapses on top of that, hence, I am unable to run the notebook. What has worked for others? Below is the full list of instructions of how I created the environment.
conda create --name llm_env
conda activate llm_env
conda install -c conda-forge flax
conda install -c conda-forge matplotlib
conda install -c anaconda pandas
conda install -c anaconda jupyter
@Liza. Environments are annoying Try
pip install jupyter rather than conda after activating. Perhaps that’ll do the trick
