CS 451 class prep 13

1. Watch the following Coursera ML videos in preparation for the next class. The first set of videos will be helpful for understanding how SGD works, for HW 3, and retroactively for HW 2.

Large Scale Machine Learning
    5 Video: Learning With Large Datasets
   13 Video: Stochastic Gradient Descent
    6 Video: Mini-Batch Gradient Descent
   11 Video: Stochastic Gradient Descent Convergence

Support Vector Machines
   14 Video: Optimization Objective

2. Make some headway on HW 3. Try to get through test 5 (feed forward), and start to tackle back propagation, which is the hardest part. We will spend additional class time on Monday on HW 3.
