## Welcome!

My name is Marvin Fuchs and I am a 19-year old Computer Science student from Darmstadt, Germany. At the moment I am interested in Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) and their magical application in Neural Style Transfer. While I am exploring the landscape of Machine Learning autodidacticially, especially Deep Learning, I want to document my journey of understanding along these algorithms via BlogPosts. I hope that I will be able to unveil the underlying mathematical intuition behind those Deep Learning Archtitectures and share interesting insights. Feel free to contact me :)
