Neural Networks and Computation Graphs

In this lecture, we will briefly review neural networks and take our first look at computation graphs. We will discuss what computation graphs are and their semantics as a general language for describing functions. Then we will see the two kinds of computations they allow, namely the forward pass and the backward pass.
