I've always been interested in Neural Networks (ever since I first found out about them around 10 years ago). However, I never got a chance to learn about them or write one of my own; this is something I've wanted to do for some time. I got the opportunity this semester when my professor in my advanced data-structures class told us that we could pick any topic we liked, for a semester project. I thought that this would be the perfect time for me to learn about neural networks and create one of my own.
The end result was Akṣi, a neural network that recognizes hand-written digits. I've hosted it using Google's App Engine. Please check it out!
