An MIT Press book of Deep Learning

The world-famous scholars,  Ian Goodfellow and Yoshua Bengio and Aaron Courville,  has just published an MIT press book of deep learning.

The online version of the book is now complete and will remain available online for free (

I. Goodfellow, Y. Bengio,  and A. Courville

It is believed to be a very good learning material and reference for all the researchers and learners. The pdf of the English version is forbidden due to the copyright issues (Check the FAQ on the page to see more details).  If you do not like reading online, the hardcopy is available on Amazon with a price of 72$ 😦 (I guess reading online is fine).

However, a translated pdf version in Chinese could be found and download on Github. I have to say that this translation speed is impressive. I have been reading this Chinese version and I can tell the quality is good enough for Chinese readers. Many thanks to the team for sharing the Deep Learning knowledge!

Here are the links:


Moreover, the translators state that they will continue updating the book until its final release. Good to be a Chinese right 😛
