About the Technology

Machine learning has made remarkable progress in recent years. We went from near-unusable speech and image recognition, to near-human accuracy. We went from machines that couldn't beat a serious Go player, to defeating a world champion. Behind this progress is deep learning—a combination of engineering advances, best practices, and theory that enables a wealth of previously impossible smart applications.

About the Book

Deep Learning with Python introduces the field of deep learning using the Python language and the powerful Keras library. Written by Keras creator and Google AI researcher François Chollet, this book builds your understanding through intuitive explanations and practical examples. You'll explore challenging concepts and practice with applications in computer vision, natural-language processing, and generative models. By the time you finish, you'll have the knowledge and hands-on skills to apply deep learning in your own projects.

What's Inside
 
  • Deep learning from first principles
  • Setting up your own deep-learning environment
  • Image-classification models
  • Deep learning for text and sequences
  • Neural style transfer, text generation, and image generation

 

About the Reader

Readers need intermediate Python skills. No previous experience with Keras, TensorFlow, or machine learning is required.

About the Author

François Chollet is one of the most important researchers in modern day deep learning. His groundbreaking work includes the creation of the Keras deep learning library, and major contributions to the TensorFlow framework. These tools have helped revolutionize and democratize deep learning. François is an AI researcher and Senior Staff Software Engineer at Google. François authored Deep Learning with R alongside J.J. Allaire, and developed the Abstraction and Reasoning Challenge that measures AI skill-acquisition on unknown tasks.
