Abstract: This is the first instalment of a series of lectures essentially making up a mini course on the subject. The idea is to cover the practical as well as the theoretical aspects. In fact, my hope with this series of lectures is to shine light on interesting pure math problems arising in the context of deep learning, that so far has gathered only a minute amount of attention.

The first lecture will cover some of the history of deep learning starting with the perceptron algorithm.
