Book Description

With information on the web exponentially increasing, it has become more difficult than ever to navigate through everything to find reliable content that will help you get started with deep learning. This book is designed to help you if you’re a beginner looking to work on deep learning and build deep learning models from scratch, and you already have the basic mathematical and programming knowledge required to get started.

The book begins with a basic overview of machine learning, guiding you through setting up popular Python frameworks. You will also understand how to prepare data by cleaning and preprocessing it for deep learning, and gradually go on to explore neural networks. A dedicated section will give you insights into the working of neural networks by helping you get hands-on with training single and multiple layers of neurons. Later, you will cover popular neural network architectures such as CNNs, RNNs, AEs, VAEs, and GANs with the help of simple examples, and learn how to build models from scratch. At the end of each chapter, you will find a question and answer section to help you test what you’ve learned through the course of the book.

By the end of this book, you’ll be well-versed with deep learning concepts and have the knowledge you need to use specific algorithms with various tools for different tasks.

What you will learn

  • Implement recurrent neural networks (RNNs) and long short-term memory (LSTM) for image classification and natural language processing tasks
  • Explore the role of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) in computer vision and signal processing
  • Discover the ethical implications of deep learning modeling
  • Understand the mathematical terminology associated with deep learning
  • Code a generative adversarial network (GAN) and a variational autoencoder (VAE) to generate images from a learned latent space
  • Implement visualization techniques to compare AEs and VAEs
