Summary:: I'm looking for some great books on deep learning related to image recognition that I can use in astrophysics.

Hello,
I'm about to start my master thesis, where I, in short, will be comparing snapshots of young binary stars from simulations to observations using deep learning - basically, image recognition. I'll be starting in a few months and I want to read as much as possible before I actually start. So, I'm looking for some great books on machine learning, deep learning and image recognition, and would like to hear if there are any that you can recommend?

Thanks in advance!

That book by Michael Nielsen is free, online, and you can download the software and test datasets to practice it yourself. Hard to do better than that.
This looks amazing. Thank you so much for sharing this! :)

I worked all the way through that book. Definitely worth the effort.

I would also highly recommend this relatively short series of Neural Networks videos by Grant Sanderson on his 3Blue1Brown channel. The knowledge that I gained in those videos gave me a much better understanding of how they work than anything else that I've seen.
