Appendix: Basic Knowledge

Deep learning (DL) is a subfield of machine learning (ML), which is itself a subset of artificial intelligence (AI).

Understanding AI requires a wide range of technical and mathematical disciplines.

However, to grasp the fundamentals of the Transformer model, a deep learning technique and our first goal, only basic Python and mathematics knowledge are necessary.

The following chapters provide introductions to these essential Python and mathematical concepts, to understand the Transformer model:
