Just what is up with neural network? How do they work? How are they useful for a hobbyist? Isn't it just for huge data crunching and pattern detection and shit of the like?

What incentive is there to learn how to program them, and what are the easiest languages? What are the hardest? Where does C come into this?

Really curious because NN for some reason and everyone and their gran is on the hype train.

There aren't really "easy" and "hard" programming languages. Just some that most people would consider easier to learn than others. Also, whether you're starting out completely fresh (no programming language knowledge) or trying to pick up another programming language while already knowing one will change the answer as to which programming language is easiest to learn.

For instance, if you already know C++, then learning C# is not too difficult, whereas if you're just starting out then learning C# might be a daunting challenge.

Here is a picture of the most in-demand programming languages around today (but these are not necessarily the easiest to learn).

Basically, neural networks are good for complex problems for which there is no straightforward solution. they are an attempt to model the way the human brain works, with neurons and axons and such. you give them an input, and then using what is essentially a series of matrix vector multiplications, the neural network arrives at an output, or a set of outputs. there are a number of ways to 'train' a neural network, the two i see a lot are evolution and back propagation.

i suggest you check out the youtube channel 'carykh' if you like learning from videos at all, and they're also quite fun. but he's not really an expert. you should check out this online textbook also: http://neuralnetworksanddeeplearning.com/chap1.html

im guessing ios. to my knowledge there is no programming language named ios.

There is a guy on youtube doing a series on GTA V and making a self-driving car with a NN in python and a way of "reading" the screen in order to feed it into the neural network.

Too lazy to copypaste the link right now but just search "gta v python neural network self driving car" on YouTube and it should come up
