Someone here —

— said they wanted deep learning examples that they can just download and run. No Math. No Theory. No Books.

Zero to One — A Ton of Awe-Inspiring Deep Learning Demos with Code for Beginners

It’s difficult to find deep learning examples that are open source and that also run first try without stepping through dependency hell, so try this:

Below are 10 models I have downloaded and started running on my MacBook Pro or AWS in under 10 minutes. All ran several days to several months ago — just download and go. They finish in between 5s (pre-trained neural networks) and several hours (GPU-intensive neural network training) time. But you’ve got 5 seconds, right?

Email me if the following doesn’t work for you. Seriously!

The list is split into two parts —

Part 1: Deep Learning on AWS & Using APIs

Part 2: Deep Learning on iOS.

Here you go!
