The last few days, I’ve been spending a lot of time on teaching myself to think through problems in a different area.
The course on Deep Learning is pushing the boundaries of my comfort zones.
Every day, however small the progress may be, it feels like a breakthrough.
Waking up way before dawn again today, I spent just under two hours tackling the implementation of backward propagation in python code, vectorised no less.
It was very very hard going for me, yet, after I submitted the assignment & saw the score, there was a tiny sense of accomplishment.
That feeling, amid all the weariness, is very valuable to me at this point.
That, & the music I surround myself with.
Of course it is only month-1/ course-1 of a 5 part course, so things will only get harder from now on.
