Applied Deep Learning with Keras
Solve complex real-life problems with the simplicity of Keras
About the Book
Take your neural networks to a whole new level with the simplicity and modularity of Keras, the most commonly used high-level neural networks API.
- Solve complex machine learning problems with precision
- Evaluate, tweak, and improve your deep learning models and solutions
- Use different types of neural networks to solve real-world problems
Though designing neural networks is a sought-after skill, it is not easy to master. With Keras, you can apply complex machine learning algorithms with minimum code.
Applied Deep Learning with Keras starts by taking you through the basics of machine learning and Python all the way to gaining an in-depth understanding of applying Keras to develop efficient deep learning solutions. To help you grasp the difference between machine and deep learning, the book guides you on how to build a logistic regression model, first with scikit-learn and then with Keras. You will delve into Keras and its many models by creating prediction models for various real-world scenarios, such as disease prediction and customer churning. You’ll gain knowledge on how to evaluate, optimize, and improve your models to achieve maximum information. Next, you’ll learn to evaluate your model by cross-validating it using Keras Wrapper and scikit-learn. Following this, you’ll proceed to understand how to apply L1, L2, and dropout regularization techniques to improve the accuracy of your model. To help maintain accuracy, you’ll get to grips with applying techniques including null accuracy, precision, and AUC-ROC score techniques for fine tuning your model.
By the end of this book, you will have the skills you need to use Keras when building high-level deep neural networks.
