Stories like this one are quite popular these days.

The idea of training a neural net to do something silly like this may sound trivial to experts like you, but for a novice like me it could be an interesting learning experience.

Is there novice-friendly software I could play with to train a neural net to do something like this or is there necessarily a steep learning curve?

An intuitive NN playground can be found in TensorFlow Playground

Also, check the Google ML crash course for coders as they promised to add more practicals.


keras is probably the highest level and easiest to go into. Here are some keras tutorials
