Neural NetworksNeural Networks

This page is about the skill Neural Networks, which is one of more than 40 technical skills you can assess on Alooba. The Neural Networks subject is about a subcategory of Machine Learning algorithms that have become more popular recently after certain advances in hardware and software optimizations. The applications are broad and cover topics that are very difficult to tackle with other Machine Learning algorithms (like speech and text recognition, image segmentation and more). Participants need to demonstrate knowledge of basic structures of Neural Networks (like Perceptron), be able to classify different Neural Networks into categories and be knowledgeable of the differences between different NN structures (like Convolutional Neural Networks, Multi Layer Perceptrons, GANs and more). Lastly, participants should be able to talk about the hardware and software advances that made NNs a reality (adding GPUs to hardware and more).

What types of things are included in the Neural Networks skill?

The Neural Networks skill assesses knowledge of topics like Activation Function, Batch normalization, Bias, Convolutional Neural Networks, Convolution Matrix, Model Evaluation, Overfitting & Weights and Biases.

Which types of roles require good Neural Networks skills?

Neural Networks is a commonly assessed skill for roles such as Data Scientist, Machine Learning Engineer & Data Science Manager.

Why should we test someone’s Neural Networks skills?

A critical part of running an ethical hiring process that’s fair and meritocratic is having objective measures of someone’s skills. Why does ethical hiring matter? Simple - it helps you hire the best person for the job.

Robert Half reported that the cost of a bad hire is on average 15-21% of the employee’s salary.

What was the most common reason for mis-hires? A lack of the right technical skills. This a true hiring own-goal, as it’s so easily preventable through a valid, thorough skills assessment.

So, if your role requires a candidate to know Neural Networks well, you can validate that with Alooba Assess.

Can I test my current team’s Neural Networks skills too?

Yes you sure can. You can assess their skills using Alooba Growth.

Which tests can I find the Neural Networks skill in?
