Keras - Backend Configuration
This chapter explains Keras backend implementations TensorFlow and Theano in detail. Let us go through each implementation one by one.
TensorFlow
TensorFlow is an open source machine learning library used for numerical computational tasks developed by Google. Keras is a high level API built on top of TensorFlow or Theano. We know already how to install TensorFlow using pip.
If it is not installed, you can install using the below command −
pip install TensorFlow
Once we execute keras, we could see the configuration file is located at your home directory inside and go to .keras/keras.json.
keras.json
{ "image_data_format": "channels_last", "epsilon": 1e-07, "floatx": "float32", "backend": "tensorflow" }
Here,
image_data_format represent the data format.
epsilon represents numeric constant. It is used to avoid DivideByZero error.
floatx represent the default data type float32. You can also change it to float16 or float64 using set_floatx() method.
image_data_format represent the data format.
Suppose, if the file is not created then move to the location and create using the below steps −
> cd home > mkdir .keras > vi keras.json
Remember, you should specify .keras as its folder name and add the above configuration inside keras.json file. We can perform some pre-defined operations to know backend functions.
Theano
Theano is an open source deep learning library that allows you to evaluate multi-dimensional arrays effectively. We can easily install using the below command −
pip install theano
By default, keras uses TensorFlow backend. If you want to change backend configuration from TensorFlow to Theano, just change the backend = theano in keras.json file. It is described below −
keras.json
{ "image_data_format": "channels_last", "epsilon": 1e-07, "floatx": "float32", "backend": "theano" }
Now save your file, restart your terminal and start keras, your backend will be changed.
>>> import keras as k using theano backend.
Keras - Overview of Deep learning
Deep learning is an evolving subfield of machine learning. Deep learning involves analyzing the input in layer by layer manner, where each layer progressively extracts higher level information about the input.
Let us take a simple scenario of analyzing an image. Let us assume that your input image is divided up into a rectangular grid of pixels. Now, the first layer abstracts the pixels. The second layer understands the edges in the image. The Next layer constructs nodes from the edges. Then, the next would find branches from the nodes. Finally, the output layer will detect the full object. Here, the feature extraction process goes from the output of one layer into the input of the next subsequent layer.
By using this approach, we can process huge amount of features, which makes deep learning a very powerful tool. Deep learning algorithms are also useful for the analysis of unstructured data. Let us go through the basics of deep learning in this chapter.
Artificial Neural Networks
The most popular and primary approach of deep learning is using “Artificial neural network” (ANN). They are inspired from the model of human brain, which is the most complex organ of our body. The human brain is made up of more than 90 billion tiny cells called “Neurons”. Neurons are inter-connected through nerve fiber called “axons” and “Dendrites”. The main role of axon is to transmit information from one neuron to another to which it is connected.
Similarly, the main role of dendrites is to receive the information being transmitted by the axons of another neuron to which it is connected. Each neuron processes a small information and then passes the result to another neuron and this process continues. This is the basic method used by our human brain to process huge about of information like speech, visual, etc., and extract useful information from it.
Based on this model, the first Artificial Neural Network (ANN) was invented by psychologist Frank Rosenblatt, in the year of 1958. ANNs are made up of multiple nodes which is similar to neurons. Nodes are tightly interconnected and organized into different hidden layers. The input layer receives the input data and the data goes through one or more hidden layers sequentially and finally the output layer predict something useful about the input data. For example, the input may be an image and the output may be the thing identified in the image, say a “Cat”.
A single neuron (called as perceptron in ANN) can be represented as below −
Here,
Multiple input along with weight represents dendrites.
Sum of input along with activation function represents neurons. Sum actually means computed value of all inputs and activation function represent a function, which modify the Sum value into 0, 1 or 0 to 1.
Actual output represent axon and the output will be received by neuron in next layer.
Let us understand different types of artificial neural networks in this section.
Multi-Layer Perceptron
Multi-Layer perceptron is the simplest form of ANN. It consists of a single input layer, one or more hidden layer and finally an output layer. A layer consists of a collection of perceptron. Input layer is basically one or more features of the input data. Every hidden layer consists of one or more neurons and process certain aspect of the feature and send the processed information into the next hidden layer. The output layer process receives the data from last hidden layer and finally output the result.
Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)
Convolutional neural network is one of the most popular ANN. It is widely used in the fields of image and video recognition. It is based on the concept of convolution, a mathematical concept. It is almost similar to multi-layer perceptron except it contains series of convolution layer and pooling layer before the fully connected hidden neuron layer. It has three important layers −
Convolution layer − It is the primary building block and perform computational tasks based on convolution function.
Pooling layer − It is arranged next to convolution layer and is used to reduce the size of inputs by removing unnecessary information so computation can be performed faster.
Fully connected layer − It is arranged to next to series of convolution and pooling layer and classify input into various categories.
A simple CNN can be represented as below −
Here,
2 series of Convolution and pooling layer is used and it receives and process the input (e.g. image).
A single fully connected layer is used and it is used to output the data (e.g. classification of image)
Recurrent Neural Network (RNN)
Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) are useful to address the flaw in other ANN models. Well, Most of the ANN doesn’t remember the steps from previous situations and learned to make decisions based on context in training. Meanwhile, RNN stores the past information and all its decisions are taken from what it has learnt from the past.
This approach is mainly useful in image classification. Sometimes, we may need to look into the future to fix the past. In this case bidirectional RNN is helpful to learn from the past and predict the future. For example, we have handwritten samples in multiple inputs. Suppose, we have confusion in one input then we need to check again other inputs to recognize the correct context which takes the decision from the past.
Workflow of ANN
Let us first understand the different phases of deep learning and then, learn how Keras helps in the process of deep learning.
Collect required data
Deep learning requires lot of input data to successfully learn and predict the result. So, first collect as much data as possible.
Analyze data
Analyze the data and acquire a good understanding of the data. The better understanding of the data is required to select the correct ANN algorithm.
Choose an algorithm (model)
Choose an algorithm, which will best fit for the type of learning process (e.g image classification, text processing, etc.,) and the available input data. Algorithm is represented by Model in Keras. Algorithm includes one or more layers. Each layers in ANN can be represented by Keras Layer in Keras.
Prepare data − Process, filter and select only the required information from the data.
Split data − Split the data into training and test data set. Test data will be used to evaluate the prediction of the algorithm / Model (once the machine learn) and to cross check the efficiency of the learning process.
Compile the model − Compile the algorithm / model, so that, it can be used further to learn by training and finally do to prediction. This step requires us to choose loss function and Optimizer. loss function and Optimizer are used in learning phase to find the error (deviation from actual output) and do optimization so that the error will be minimized.
Fit the model − The actual learning process will be done in this phase using the training data set.
Predict result for unknown value − Predict the output for the unknown input data (other than existing training and test data)
Evaluate model − Evaluate the model by predicting the output for test data and cross-comparing the prediction with actual result of the test data.
Freeze, Modify or choose new algorithm − Check whether the evaluation of the model is successful. If yes, save the algorithm for future prediction purpose. If not, then modify or choose new algorithm / model and finally, again train, predict and evaluate the model. Repeat the process until the best algorithm (model) is found.
The above steps can be represented using below flow chart −
Keras - Deep learning
Keras provides a complete framework to create any type of neural networks. Keras is innovative as well as very easy to learn. It supports simple neural network to very large and complex neural network model. Let us understand the architecture of Keras framework and how Keras helps in deep learning in this chapter.
Architecture of Keras
Keras API can be divided into three main categories −
- Model
- Layer
- Core Modules
In Keras, every ANN is represented by Keras Models. In turn, every Keras Model is composition of Keras Layers and represents ANN layers like input, hidden layer, output layers, convolution layer, pooling layer, etc., Keras model and layer access Keras modules for activation function, loss function, regularization function, etc., Using Keras model, Keras Layer, and Keras modules, any ANN algorithm (CNN, RNN, etc.,) can be represented in a simple and efficient manner.
The following diagram depicts the relationship between model, layer and core modules −
Let us see the overview of Keras models, Keras layers and Keras modules.
Model
Keras Models are of two types as mentioned below −
Sequential Model − Sequential model is basically a linear composition of Keras Layers. Sequential model is easy, minimal as well as has the ability to represent nearly all available neural networks.
A simple sequential model is as follows −
from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Dense, Activation model = Sequential() model.add(Dense(512, activation = 'relu', input_shape = (784,)))
Where,
Line 1 imports Sequential model from Keras models
Line 2 imports Dense layer and Activation module
Line 4 create a new sequential model using Sequential API
Line 5 adds a dense layer (Dense API) with relu activation (using Activation module) function.
Sequential model exposes Model class to create customized models as well. We can use sub-classing concept to create our own complex model.
Functional API − Functional API is basically used to create complex models.
Layer
Each Keras layer in the Keras model represent the corresponding layer (input layer, hidden layer and output layer) in the actual proposed neural network model. Keras provides a lot of pre-build layers so that any complex neural network can be easily created. Some of the important Keras layers are specified below,
- Core Layers
- Convolution Layers
- Pooling Layers
- Recurrent Layers
A simple python code to represent a neural network model using sequential model is as follows −
from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Dense, Activation, Dropout model = Sequential() model.add(Dense(512, activation = 'relu', input_shape = (784,))) model.add(Dropout(0.2)) model.add(Dense(512, activation = 'relu')) model.add(Dropout(0.2)) model.add(Dense(num_classes, activation = 'softmax'))
Where,
Line 1 imports Sequential model from Keras models
Line 2 imports Dense layer and Activation module
Line 4 create a new sequential model using Sequential API
Line 5 adds a dense layer (Dense API) with relu activation (using Activation module) function.
Line 6 adds a dropout layer (Dropout API) to handle over-fitting.
Line 7 adds another dense layer (Dense API) with relu activation (using Activation module) function.
Line 8 adds another dropout layer (Dropout API) to handle over-fitting.
Line 9 adds final dense layer (Dense API) with softmax activation (using Activation module) function.
Keras also provides options to create our own customized layers. Customized layer can be created by sub-classing the Keras.Layer class and it is similar to sub-classing Keras models.
Core Modules
Keras also provides a lot of built-in neural network related functions to properly create the Keras model and Keras layers. Some of the function are as follows −
Activations module − Activation function is an important concept in ANN and activation modules provides many activation function like softmax, relu, etc.,
Loss module − Loss module provides loss functions like mean_squared_error, mean_absolute_error, poisson, etc.,
Optimizer module − Optimizer module provides optimizer function like adam, sgd, etc.,
Regularizers − Regularizer module provides functions like L1 regularizer, L2 regularizer, etc.,

Keras - Layers
As learned earlier, Keras layers are the primary building block of Keras models. Each layer receives input information, do some computation and finally output the transformed information. The output of one layer will flow into the next layer as its input. Let us learn complete details about layers in this chapter.
Introduction
A Keras layer requires shape of the input (input_shape) to understand the structure of the input data, initializer to set the weight for each input and finally activators to transform the output to make it non-linear. In between, constraints restricts and specify the range in which the weight of input data to be generated and regularizer will try to optimize the layer (and the model) by dynamically applying the penalties on the weights during optimization process.
To summarise, Keras layer requires below minimum details to create a complete layer.
- Shape of the input data
- Number of neurons / units in the layer
- Initializers
- Regularizers
- Constraints
- Activations
Let us understand the basic concept in the next chapter. Before understanding the basic concept, let us create a simple Keras layer using Sequential model API to get the idea of how Keras model and layer works.
from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Activation, Dense from keras import initializers from keras import regularizers from keras import constraints model = Sequential() model.add(Dense(32, input_shape=(16,), kernel_initializer = 'he_uniform', kernel_regularizer = None, kernel_constraint = 'MaxNorm', activation = 'relu')) model.add(Dense(16, activation = 'relu')) model.add(Dense(8))
where,
Line 1-5 imports the necessary modules.
Line 7 creates a new model using Sequential API.
Line 9 creates a new Dense layer and add it into the model. Dense is an entry level layer provided by Keras, which accepts the number of neurons or units (32) as its required parameter. If the layer is first layer, then we need to provide Input Shape, (16,) as well. Otherwise, the output of the previous layer will be used as input of the next layer. All other parameters are optional.
First parameter represents the number of units (neurons).
input_shape represent the shape of input data.
kernel_initializer represent initializer to be used. he_uniform function is set as value.
kernel_regularizer represent regularizer to be used. None is set as value.
kernel_constraint represent constraint to be used. MaxNorm function is set as value.
activation represent activation to be used. relu function is set as value.
Line 10 creates second Dense layer with 16 units and set relu as the activation function.
Line 11 creates final Dense layer with 8 units.
Basic Concept of Layers
Let us understand the basic concept of layer as well as how Keras supports each concept.
Input shape
In machine learning, all type of input data like text, images or videos will be first converted into array of numbers and then feed into the algorithm. Input numbers may be single dimensional array, two dimensional array (matrix) or multi-dimensional array. We can specify the dimensional information using shape, a tuple of integers. For example, (4,2) represent matrix with four rows and two columns.
>>> import numpy as np >>> shape = (4, 2) >>> input = np.zeros(shape) >>> print(input) [ [0. 0.] [0. 0.] [0. 0.] [0. 0.] ] >>>
Similarly, (3,4,2) three dimensional matrix having three collections of 4x2 matrix (two rows and four columns).
>>> import numpy as np >>> shape = (3, 4, 2) >>> input = np.zeros(shape) >>> print(input) [ [[0. 0.] [0. 0.] [0. 0.] [0. 0.]] [[0. 0.] [0. 0.] [0. 0.] [0. 0.]] [[0. 0.] [0. 0.] [0. 0.] [0. 0.]] ] >>>
To create the first layer of the model (or input layer of the model), shape of the input data should be specified.

NonNeg
Constrains weights to be non-negative.
from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Activation, Dense from keras import initializers my_init = initializers.Identity(gain = 1.0) model.add( Dense(512, activation = 'relu', input_shape = (784,), kernel_initializer = my_init) )

Activations
In machine learning, activation function is a special function used to find whether a specific neuron is activated or not. Basically, the activation function does a nonlinear transformation of the input data and thus enable the neurons to learn better. Output of a neuron depends on the activation function.
As you recall the concept of single perception, the output of a perceptron (neuron) is simply the result of the activation function, which accepts the summation of all input multiplied with its corresponding weight plus overall bias, if any available.
result = Activation(SUMOF(input * weight) + bias)
So, activation function plays an important role in the successful learning of the model. Keras provides a lot of activation function in the activations module. Let us learn all the activations available in the module.

Keras - Customized Layer
Keras allows to create our own customized layer. Once a new layer is created, it can be used in any model without any restriction. Let us learn how to create new layer in this chapter.
Keras provides a base layer class, Layer which can sub-classed to create our own customized layer. Let us create a simple layer which will find weight based on normal distribution and then do the basic computation of finding the summation of the product of input and its weight during training.
Step 1: Import the necessary module
First, let us import the necessary modules −
from keras import backend as K from keras.layers import Layer
Here,
backend is used to access the dot function.
Layer is the base class and we will be sub-classing it to create our layer
Step 2: Define a layer class
Let us create a new class, MyCustomLayer by sub-classing Layer class −
class MyCustomLayer(Layer): ...
Step 3: Initialize the layer class
Let us initialize our new class as specified below −
def __init__(self, output_dim, **kwargs): self.output_dim = output_dim super(MyCustomLayer, self).__init__(**kwargs)
Here,
Line 2 sets the output dimension.
Line 3 calls the base or super layer’s init function.
Step 4: Implement build method
build is the main method and its only purpose is to build the layer properly. It can do anything related to the inner working of the layer. Once the custom functionality is done, we can call the base class build function. Our custom build function is as follows −
def build(self, input_shape): self.kernel = self.add_weight(name = 'kernel', shape = (input_shape[1], self.output_dim), initializer = 'normal', trainable = True) super(MyCustomLayer, self).build(input_shape)
Here,
Line 1 defines the build method with one argument, input_shape. Shape of the input data is referred by input_shape.
Line 2 creates the weight corresponding to input shape and set it in the kernel. It is our custom functionality of the layer. It creates the weight using ‘normal’ initializer.
Line 6 calls the base class, build method.
Step 5: Implement call method
call method does the exact working of the layer during training process.
Our custom call method is as follows
def call(self, input_data): return K.dot(input_data, self.kernel)
Here,
Line 1 defines the call method with one argument, input_data. input_data is the input data for our layer.
Line 2 return the dot product of the input data, input_data and our layer’s kernel, self.kernel
Step 6: Implement compute_output_shape method
def compute_output_shape(self, input_shape): return (input_shape[0], self.output_dim)
Here,
Line 1 defines compute_output_shape method with one argument input_shape
Line 2 computes the output shape using shape of input data and output dimension set while initializing the layer.
Implementing the build, call and compute_output_shape completes the creating a customized layer. The final and complete code is as follows
from keras import backend as K from keras.layers import Layer class MyCustomLayer(Layer): def __init__(self, output_dim, **kwargs): self.output_dim = output_dim super(MyCustomLayer, self).__init__(**kwargs) def build(self, input_shape): self.kernel = self.add_weight(name = 'kernel', shape = (input_shape[1], self.output_dim), initializer = 'normal', trainable = True) super(MyCustomLayer, self).build(input_shape) # Be sure to call this at the end def call(self, input_data): return K.dot(input_data, self.kernel) def compute_output_shape(self, input_shape): return (input_shape[0], self.output_dim)
Using our customized layer
Let us create a simple model using our customized layer as specified below −
from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Dense model = Sequential() model.add(MyCustomLayer(32, input_shape = (16,))) model.add(Dense(8, activation = 'softmax')) model.summary()
Here,
Our MyCustomLayer is added to the model using 32 units and (16,) as input shape
Running the application will print the model summary as below −
Model: "sequential_1" _________________________________________________________________ Layer (type) Output Shape Param #================================================================ my_custom_layer_1 (MyCustomL (None, 32) 512 _________________________________________________________________ dense_1 (Dense) (None, 8) 264 ================================================================= Total params: 776 Trainable params: 776 Non-trainable params: 0 _________________________________________________________________
Keras - Models
As learned earlier, Keras model represents the actual neural network model. Keras provides a two mode to create the model, simple and easy to use Sequential API as well as more flexible and advanced Functional API. Let us learn now to create model using both Sequential and Functional API in this chapter.
Sequential
The core idea of Sequential API is simply arranging the Keras layers in a sequential order and so, it is called Sequential API. Most of the ANN also has layers in sequential order and the data flows from one layer to another layer in the given order until the data finally reaches the output layer.
A ANN model can be created by simply calling Sequential() API as specified below −
from keras.models import Sequential model = Sequential()
Add layers
To add a layer, simply create a layer using Keras layer API and then pass the layer through add() function as specified below −
from keras.models import Sequential model = Sequential() input_layer = Dense(32, input_shape=(8,)) model.add(input_layer) hidden_layer = Dense(64, activation='relu'); model.add(hidden_layer) output_layer = Dense(8) model.add(output_layer)
Here, we have created one input layer, one hidden layer and one output layer.
Access the model

>>> outputs = model.outputs >>> outputs <tf.Tensor 'dense_15/BiasAdd:0' shape=(?, 8) dtype=float32>]

model.set_weights(weight_numpy_array) − Set the weights of the model.

model_from_yaml() − Accepts yaml representation of the model and create a new model.
from keras.models import model_from_yaml new_model = model_from_yaml(yaml_string)
Summarise the model
Understanding the model is very important phase to properly use it for training and prediction purposes. Keras provides a simple method, summary to get the full information about the model and its layers.
A summary of the model created in the previous section is as follows −
>>> model.summary() Model: "sequential_10" _________________________________________________________________ Layer (type) Output Shape Param #================================================================ dense_13 (Dense) (None, 32) 288 _________________________________________________________________ dense_14 (Dense) (None, 64) 2112 _________________________________________________________________ dense_15 (Dense) (None, 8) 520 ================================================================= Total params: 2,920 Trainable params: 2,920 Non-trainable params: 0 _________________________________________________________________ >>>
Train and Predict the model
Model provides function for training, evaluation and prediction process. They are as follows −
compile − Configure the learning process of the model
fit − Train the model using the training data
evaluate − Evaluate the model using the test data
predict − Predict the results for new input.
Functional API
Sequential API is used to create models layer-by-layer. Functional API is an alternative approach of creating more complex models. Functional model, you can define multiple input or output that share layers. First, we create an instance for model and connecting to the layers to access input and output to the model. This section explains about functional model in brief.
Create a model
Import an input layer using the below module −
>>> from keras.layers import Input
Now, create an input layer specifying input dimension shape for the model using the below code −
>>> data = Input(shape=(2,3))
Define layer for the input using the below module −
>>> from keras.layers import Dense
Add Dense layer for the input using the below line of code −
>>> layer = Dense(2)(data) >>> print(layer) Tensor("dense_1/add:0", shape =(?, 2, 2), dtype = float32)
Define model using the below module −
from keras.models import Model
Create a model in functional way by specifying both input and output layer −
model = Model(inputs = data, outputs = layer)
The complete code to create a simple model is shown below −
from keras.layers import Input from keras.models import Model from keras.layers import Dense data = Input(shape=(2,3)) layer = Dense(2)(data) model = Model(inputs=data,outputs=layer) model.summary() _________________________________________________________________ Layer (type) Output Shape Param # ================================================================= input_2 (InputLayer) (None, 2, 3) 0 _________________________________________________________________ dense_2 (Dense) (None, 2, 2) 8 ================================================================= Total params: 8 Trainable params: 8 Non-trainable params: 0 _________________________________________________________________
Keras - Model Compilation
Previously, we studied the basics of how to create model using Sequential and Functional API. This chapter explains about how to compile the model. The compilation is the final step in creating a model. Once the compilation is done, we can move on to training phase.
Let us learn few concepts required to better understand the compilation process.
Loss
In machine learning, Loss function is used to find error or deviation in the learning process. Keras requires loss function during model compilation process.
Keras provides quite a few loss function in the losses module and they are as follows −
- mean_squared_error
- mean_absolute_error
- mean_absolute_percentage_error
- mean_squared_logarithmic_error
- squared_hinge
- hinge
- categorical_hinge
- logcosh
- huber_loss
- categorical_crossentropy
- sparse_categorical_crossentropy
- binary_crossentropy
- kullback_leibler_divergence
- poisson
- cosine_proximity
- is_categorical_crossentropy
All above loss function accepts two arguments −
y_true − true labels as tensors
y_pred − prediction with same shape as y_true
Import the losses module before using loss function as specified below −
from keras import losses
Optimizer
In machine learning, Optimization is an important process which optimize the input weights by comparing the prediction and the loss function. Keras provides quite a few optimizer as a module, optimizers and they are as follows:
SGD − Stochastic gradient descent optimizer.
keras.optimizers.SGD(learning_rate = 0.01, momentum = 0.0, nesterov = False)
RMSprop − RMSProp optimizer.
keras.optimizers.RMSprop(learning_rate = 0.001, rho = 0.9)
Adagrad − Adagrad optimizer.
keras.optimizers.Adagrad(learning_rate = 0.01)
Adadelta − Adadelta optimizer.
keras.optimizers.Adadelta(learning_rate = 1.0, rho = 0.95)
Adam − Adam optimizer.
keras.optimizers.Adam( learning_rate = 0.001, beta_1 = 0.9, beta_2 = 0.999, amsgrad = False )
Adamax − Adamax optimizer from Adam.
keras.optimizers.Adamax(learning_rate = 0.002, beta_1 = 0.9, beta_2 = 0.999)
Nadam − Nesterov Adam optimizer.
keras.optimizers.Nadam(learning_rate = 0.002, beta_1 = 0.9, beta_2 = 0.999)
Import the optimizers module before using optimizers as specified below −
from keras import optimizers
Metrics
In machine learning, Metrics is used to evaluate the performance of your model. It is similar to loss function, but not used in training process. Keras provides quite a few metrics as a module, metrics and they are as follows
- accuracy
- binary_accuracy
- categorical_accuracy
- sparse_categorical_accuracy
- top_k_categorical_accuracy
- sparse_top_k_categorical_accuracy
- cosine_proximity
- clone_metric
Similar to loss function, metrics also accepts below two arguments −
y_true − true labels as tensors
y_pred − prediction with same shape as y_true
Import the metrics module before using metrics as specified below −
from keras import metrics
Compile the model
Keras model provides a method, compile() to compile the model. The argument and default value of the compile() method is as follows
compile( optimizer, loss = None, metrics = None, loss_weights = None, sample_weight_mode = None, weighted_metrics = None, target_tensors = None )
The important arguments are as follows −
- loss function
- Optimizer
- metrics
A sample code to compile the mode is as follows −
from keras import losses from keras import optimizers from keras import metrics model.compile(loss = 'mean_squared_error', optimizer = 'sgd', metrics = [metrics.categorical_accuracy])
where,
loss function is set as mean_squared_error
optimizer is set as sgd
metrics is set as metrics.categorical_accuracy
Model Training
Models are trained by NumPy arrays using fit(). The main purpose of this fit function is used to evaluate your model on training. This can be also used for graphing model performance. It has the following syntax −
model.fit(X, y, epochs = , batch_size = )
Here,
X, y − It is a tuple to evaluate your data.
epochs − no of times the model is needed to be evaluated during training.
batch_size − training instances.
Let us take a simple example of numpy random data to use this concept.
Create data
Let us create a random data using numpy for x and y with the help of below mentioned command −
import numpy as np x_train = np.random.random((100,4,8)) y_train = np.random.random((100,10))
Now, create random validation data,
x_val = np.random.random((100,4,8)) y_val = np.random.random((100,10))
Create model
Let us create simple sequential model −
from keras.models import Sequential model = Sequential()
Add layers
Create layers to add model −
from keras.layers import LSTM, Dense # add a sequence of vectors of dimension 16 model.add(LSTM(16, return_sequences = True)) model.add(Dense(10, activation = 'softmax'))
compile model
Now model is defined. You can compile using the below command −
model.compile( loss = 'categorical_crossentropy', optimizer = 'sgd', metrics = ['accuracy'] )
Apply fit()
Now we apply fit() function to train our data −
model.fit(x_train, y_train, batch_size = 32, epochs = 5, validation_data = (x_val, y_val))
Create a Multi-Layer Perceptron ANN
We have learned to create, compile and train the Keras models.
Let us apply our learning and create a simple MPL based ANN.
Dataset module
Before creating a model, we need to choose a problem, need to collect the required data and convert the data to NumPy array. Once data is collected, we can prepare the model and train it by using the collected data. Data collection is one of the most difficult phase of machine learning. Keras provides a special module, datasets to download the online machine learning data for training purposes. It fetches the data from online server, process the data and return the data as training and test set. Let us check the data provided by Keras dataset module. The data available in the module are as follows,
- CIFAR10 small image classification
- CIFAR100 small image classification
- IMDB Movie reviews sentiment classification
- Reuters newswire topics classification
- MNIST database of handwritten digits
- Fashion-MNIST database of fashion articles
- Boston housing price regression dataset
Let us use the MNIST database of handwritten digits (or minst) as our input. minst is a collection of 60,000, 28x28 grayscale images. It contains 10 digits. It also contains 10,000 test images.
Below code can be used to load the dataset −
from keras.datasets import mnist (x_train, y_train), (x_test, y_test) = mnist.load_data()
where
Line 1 imports minst from the keras dataset module.
Line 3 calls the load_data function, which will fetch the data from online server and return the data as 2 tuples, First tuple, (x_train, y_train) represent the training data with shape, (number_sample, 28, 28) and its digit label with shape, (number_samples, ). Second tuple, (x_test, y_test) represent test data with same shape.
Other dataset can also be fetched using similar API and every API returns similar data as well except the shape of the data. The shape of the data depends on the type of data.
Create a model
Let us choose a simple multi-layer perceptron (MLP) as represented below and try to create the model using Keras.
The core features of the model are as follows −
Input layer consists of 784 values (28 x 28 = 784).
First hidden layer, Dense consists of 512 neurons and ‘relu’ activation function.
Second hidden layer, Dropout has 0.2 as its value.
Third hidden layer, again Dense consists of 512 neurons and ‘relu’ activation function.
Fourth hidden layer, Dropout has 0.2 as its value.
Fifth and final layer consists of 10 neurons and ‘softmax’ activation function.
Use categorical_crossentropy as loss function.
Use RMSprop() as Optimizer.
Use accuracy as metrics.
Use 128 as batch size.
Use 20 as epochs.
Step 1 − Import the modules
Let us import the necessary modules.
import keras from keras.datasets import mnist from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Dense, Dropout from keras.optimizers import RMSprop import numpy as np
Step 2 − Load data
Let us import the mnist dataset.
(x_train, y_train), (x_test, y_test) = mnist.load_data()
Step 3 − Process the data
Let us change the dataset according to our model, so that it can be feed into our model.
x_train = x_train.reshape(60000, 784) x_test = x_test.reshape(10000, 784) x_train = x_train.astype('float32') x_test = x_test.astype('float32') x_train /= 255 x_test /= 255 y_train = keras.utils.to_categorical(y_train, 10) y_test = keras.utils.to_categorical(y_test, 10)
Where
reshape is used to reshape the input from (28, 28) tuple to (784, )
to_categorical is used to convert vector to binary matrix
Step 4 − Create the model
Let us create the actual model.
model = Sequential() model.add(Dense(512, activation = 'relu', input_shape = (784,))) model.add(Dropout(0.2)) model.add(Dense(512, activation = 'relu')) model.add(Dropout(0.2)) model.add(Dense(10, activation = 'softmax'))
Step 5 − Compile the model
Let us compile the model using selected loss function, optimizer and metrics.
model.compile(loss = 'categorical_crossentropy', optimizer = RMSprop(), metrics = ['accuracy'])
Step 6 − Train the model
Let us train the model using fit() method.
history = model.fit( x_train, y_train, batch_size = 128, epochs = 20, verbose = 1, validation_data = (x_test, y_test) )
Final thoughts
We have created the model, loaded the data and also trained the data to the model. We still need to evaluate the model and predict output for unknown input, which we learn in upcoming chapter.
import keras from keras.datasets import mnist from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Dense, Dropout from keras.optimizers import RMSprop import numpy as np (x_train, y_train), (x_test, y_test) = mnist.load_data() x_train = x_train.reshape(60000, 784) x_test = x_test.reshape(10000, 784) x_train = x_train.astype('float32') x_test = x_test.astype('float32') x_train /= 255 x_test /= 255 y_train = keras.utils.to_categorical(y_train, 10) y_test = keras.utils.to_categorical(y_test, 10) model = Sequential() model.add(Dense(512, activation='relu', input_shape = (784,))) model.add(Dropout(0.2)) model.add(Dense(512, activation = 'relu')) model.add(Dropout(0.2)) model.add(Dense(10, activation = 'softmax')) model.compile(loss = 'categorical_crossentropy', optimizer = RMSprop(), metrics = ['accuracy']) history = model.fit(x_train, y_train, batch_size = 128, epochs = 20, verbose = 1, validation_data = (x_test, y_test))
Executing the application will give the below content as output −

Keras - Model Evaluation and Model Prediction
This chapter deals with the model evaluation and model prediction in Keras.
Let us begin by understanding the model evaluation.
Model Evaluation
Evaluation is a process during development of the model to check whether the model is best fit for the given problem and corresponding data. Keras model provides a function, evaluate which does the evaluation of the model. It has three main arguments,
- Test data
- Test data label
- verbose - true or false
Let us evaluate the model, which we created in the previous chapter using test data.
score = model.evaluate(x_test, y_test, verbose = 0) print('Test loss:', score[0]) print('Test accuracy:', score[1])
Executing the above code will output the below information.
0
The test accuracy is 98.28%. We have created a best model to identify the handwriting digits. On the positive side, we can still scope to improve our model.
Model Prediction
Prediction is the final step and our expected outcome of the model generation. Keras provides a method, predict to get the prediction of the trained model. The signature of the predict method is as follows,
predict( x, batch_size = None, verbose = 0, steps = None, callbacks = None, max_queue_size = 10, workers = 1, use_multiprocessing = False )
Here, all arguments are optional except the first argument, which refers the unknown input data. The shape should be maintained to get the proper prediction.
Let us do prediction for our MPL model created in previous chapter using below code −
pred = model.predict(x_test) pred = np.argmax(pred, axis = 1)[:5] label = np.argmax(y_test,axis = 1)[:5] print(pred) print(label)
Here,
Line 1 call the predict function using test data.
Line 2 gets the first five prediction
Line 3 gets the first five labels of the test data.
Line 5 - 6 prints the prediction and actual label.
The output of the above application is as follows −
[7 2 1 0 4] [7 2 1 0 4]
The output of both array is identical and it indicate that our model predicts correctly the first five images.
Keras - Convolution Neural Network
Let us modify the model from MPL to Convolution Neural Network (CNN) for our earlier digit identification problem.
CNN can be represented as below −
The core features of the model are as follows −
Input layer consists of (1, 8, 28) values.
First layer, Conv2D consists of 32 filters and ‘relu’ activation function with kernel size, (3,3).
Second layer, Conv2D consists of 64 filters and ‘relu’ activation function with kernel size, (3,3).
Thrid layer, MaxPooling has pool size of (2, 2).
Fifth layer, Flatten is used to flatten all its input into single dimension.
Sixth layer, Dense consists of 128 neurons and ‘relu’ activation function.
Seventh layer, Dropout has 0.5 as its value.
Eighth and final layer consists of 10 neurons and ‘softmax’ activation function.
Use categorical_crossentropy as loss function.
Use Adadelta() as Optimizer.
Use accuracy as metrics.
Use 128 as batch size.
Use 20 as epochs.
Step 1 − Import the modules
Let us import the necessary modules.
import keras from keras.datasets import mnist from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Dense, Dropout, Flatten from keras.layers import Conv2D, MaxPooling2D from keras import backend as K import numpy as np
Step 2 − Load data
Let us import the mnist dataset.
(x_train, y_train), (x_test, y_test) = mnist.load_data()
Step 3 − Process the data
Let us change the dataset according to our model, so that it can be feed into our model.
img_rows, img_cols = 28, 28 if K.image_data_format() == 'channels_first': x_train = x_train.reshape(x_train.shape[0], 1, img_rows, img_cols) x_test = x_test.reshape(x_test.shape[0], 1, img_rows, img_cols) input_shape = (1, img_rows, img_cols) else: x_train = x_train.reshape(x_train.shape[0], img_rows, img_cols, 1) x_test = x_test.reshape(x_test.shape[0], img_rows, img_cols, 1) input_shape = (img_rows, img_cols, 1) x_train = x_train.astype('float32') x_test = x_test.astype('float32') x_train /= 255 x_test /= 255 y_train = keras.utils.to_categorical(y_train, 10) y_test = keras.utils.to_categorical(y_test, 10)
The data processing is similar to MPL model except the shape of the input data and image format configuration.
Step 4 − Create the model
Let us create tha actual model.
model = Sequential() model.add(Conv2D(32, kernel_size = (3, 3), activation = 'relu', input_shape = input_shape)) model.add(Conv2D(64, (3, 3), activation = 'relu')) model.add(MaxPooling2D(pool_size = (2, 2))) model.add(Dropout(0.25)) model.add(Flatten()) model.add(Dense(128, activation = 'relu')) model.add(Dropout(0.5)) model.add(Dense(10, activation = 'softmax'))
Step 5 − Compile the model
Let us compile the model using selected loss function, optimizer and metrics.
model.compile(loss = keras.losses.categorical_crossentropy, optimizer = keras.optimizers.Adadelta(), metrics = ['accuracy'])
Step 6 − Train the model
Let us train the model using fit() method.

Step 7 − Evaluate the model
Let us evaluate the model using test data.
score = model.evaluate(x_test, y_test, verbose = 0) print('Test loss:', score[0]) print('Test accuracy:', score[1])
Executing the above code will output the below information −
Test loss: 0.024936060590433316 Test accuracy: 0.9922
The test accuracy is 99.22%. We have created a best model to identify the handwriting digits.

Finally, predict the digit from images as below −
pred = model.predict(x_test) pred = np.argmax(pred, axis = 1)[:5] label = np.argmax(y_test,axis = 1)[:5] print(pred) print(label)

Keras - Regression Prediction using MPL
In this chapter, let us write a simple MPL based ANN to do regression prediction. Till now, we have only done the classification based prediction. Now, we will try to predict the next possible value by analyzing the previous (continuous) values and its influencing factors.
The Regression MPL can be represented as below −
The core features of the model are as follows −
Input layer consists of (13,) values.
First layer, Dense consists of 64 units and ‘relu’ activation function with ‘normal’ kernel initializer.
Second layer, Dense consists of 64 units and ‘relu’ activation function.
Output layer, Dense consists of 1 unit.
Use mse as loss function.
Use RMSprop as Optimizer.
Use accuracy as metrics.
Use 128 as batch size.
Use 500 as epochs.
Step 1 − Import the modules
Let us import the necessary modules.
import keras from keras.datasets import boston_housing from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Dense from keras.optimizers import RMSprop from keras.callbacks import EarlyStopping from sklearn import preprocessing from sklearn.preprocessing import scale
Step 2 − Load data
Let us import the Boston housing dataset.
(x_train, y_train), (x_test, y_test) = boston_housing.load_data()
Here,
boston_housing is a dataset provided by Keras. It represents a collection of housing information in Boston area, each having 13 features.
Step 3 − Process the data
Let us change the dataset according to our model, so that, we can feed into our model. The data can be changed using below code −
x_train_scaled = preprocessing.scale(x_train) scaler = preprocessing.StandardScaler().fit(x_train) x_test_scaled = scaler.transform(x_test)
Here, we have normalized the training data using sklearn.preprocessing.scale function. preprocessing.StandardScaler().fit function returns a scalar with the normalized mean and standard deviation of the training data, which we can apply to the test data using scalar.transform function. This will normalize the test data as well with the same setting as that of training data.
Step 4 − Create the model
Let us create the actual model.
model = Sequential() model.add(Dense(64, kernel_initializer = 'normal', activation = 'relu', input_shape = (13,))) model.add(Dense(64, activation = 'relu')) model.add(Dense(1))
Step 5 − Compile the model
Let us compile the model using selected loss function, optimizer and metrics.
model.compile( loss = 'mse', optimizer = RMSprop(), metrics = ['mean_absolute_error'] )
Step 6 − Train the model
Let us train the model using fit() method.
history = model.fit( x_train_scaled, y_train, batch_size=128, epochs = 500, verbose = 1, validation_split = 0.2, callbacks = [EarlyStopping(monitor = 'val_loss', patience = 20)] )
Here, we have used callback function, EarlyStopping. The purpose of this callback is to monitor the loss value during each epoch and compare it with previous epoch loss value to find the improvement in the training. If there is no improvement for the patience times, then the whole process will be stopped.

The output of both array have around 10-30% difference and it indicate our model predicts with reasonable range.
Keras - Time Series Prediction using LSTM RNN
In this chapter, let us write a simple Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) based RNN to do sequence analysis. A sequence is a set of values where each value corresponds to a particular instance of time. Let us consider a simple example of reading a sentence. Reading and understanding a sentence involves reading the word in the given order and trying to understand each word and its meaning in the given context and finally understanding the sentence in a positive or negative sentiment.
Here, the words are considered as values, and first value corresponds to first word, second value corresponds to second word, etc., and the order will be strictly maintained. Sequence Analysis is used frequently in natural language processing to find the sentiment analysis of the given text.
Let us create a LSTM model to analyze the IMDB movie reviews and find its positive/negative sentiment.
The model for the sequence analysis can be represented as below −
The core features of the model are as follows −
Input layer using Embedding layer with 128 features.
First layer, Dense consists of 128 units with normal dropout and recurrent dropout set to 0.2.
Output layer, Dense consists of 1 unit and ‘sigmoid’ activation function.
Use binary_crossentropy as loss function.
Use adam as Optimizer.
Use accuracy as metrics.
Use 32 as batch size.
Use 15 as epochs.
Use 80 as the maximum length of the word.
Use 2000 as the maximum number of word in a given sentence.
Step 1: Import the modules
Let us import the necessary modules.
from keras.preprocessing import sequence from keras.models import Sequential from keras.layers import Dense, Embedding from keras.layers import LSTM from keras.datasets import imdb
Step 2: Load data
Let us import the imdb dataset.
(x_train, y_train), (x_test, y_test) = imdb.load_data(num_words = 2000)
Here,
imdb is a dataset provided by Keras. It represents a collection of movies and its reviews.
num_words represent the maximum number of words in the review.
Step 3: Process the data
Let us change the dataset according to our model, so that it can be fed into our model. The data can be changed using the below code −
x_train = sequence.pad_sequences(x_train, maxlen=80) x_test = sequence.pad_sequences(x_test, maxlen=80)
Here,
sequence.pad_sequences convert the list of input data with shape, (data) into 2D NumPy array of shape (data, timesteps). Basically, it adds timesteps concept into the given data. It generates the timesteps of length, maxlen.
Step 4: Create the model
Let us create the actual model.
model = Sequential() model.add(Embedding(2000, 128)) model.add(LSTM(128, dropout = 0.2, recurrent_dropout = 0.2)) model.add(Dense(1, activation = 'sigmoid'))
Here,
We have used Embedding layer as input layer and then added the LSTM layer. Finally, a Dense layer is used as output layer.
Step 5: Compile the model
Let us compile the model using selected loss function, optimizer and metrics.
model.compile(loss = 'binary_crossentropy', optimizer = 'adam', metrics = ['accuracy'])
Step 6: Train the model
LLet us train the model using fit() method.
model.fit( x_train, y_train, batch_size = 32, epochs = 15, validation_data = (x_test, y_test) )

Test score: 1.145306069601178 Test accuracy: 0.81292
Keras - Applications
Keras applications module is used to provide pre-trained model for deep neural networks. Keras models are used for prediction, feature extraction and fine tuning. This chapter explains about Keras applications in detail.
Pre-trained models
Trained model consists of two parts model Architecture and model Weights. Model weights are large file so we have to download and extract the feature from ImageNet database. Some of the popular pre-trained models are listed below,
- ResNet
- VGG16
- MobileNet
- InceptionResNetV2
- InceptionV3
Loading a model
Keras pre-trained models can be easily loaded as specified below −
import keras import numpy as np from keras.applications import vgg16, inception_v3, resnet50, mobilenet #Load the VGG model vgg_model = vgg16.VGG16(weights = 'imagenet') #Load the Inception_V3 model inception_model = inception_v3.InceptionV3(weights = 'imagenet') #Load the ResNet50 model resnet_model = resnet50.ResNet50(weights = 'imagenet') #Load the MobileNet model mobilenet_model = mobilenet.MobileNet(weights = 'imagenet')
Once the model is loaded, we can immediately use it for prediction purpose. Let us check each pre-trained model in the upcoming chapters.
Real Time Prediction using ResNet Model
ResNet is a pre-trained model. It is trained using ImageNet. ResNet model weights pre-trained on ImageNet. It has the following syntax −
keras.applications.resnet.ResNet50 ( include_top = True, weights = 'imagenet', input_tensor = None, input_shape = None, pooling = None, classes = 1000 )
Here,
include_top refers the fully-connected layer at the top of the network.
weights refer pre-training on ImageNet.
input_tensor refers optional Keras tensor to use as image input for the model.
input_shape refers optional shape tuple. The default input size for this model is 224x224.
classes refer optional number of classes to classify images.
Let us understand the model by writing a simple example −
Step 1: import the modules
Let us load the necessary modules as specified below −
>>> import PIL >>> from keras.preprocessing.image import load_img >>> from keras.preprocessing.image import img_to_array >>> from keras.applications.imagenet_utils import decode_predictions >>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt >>> import numpy as np >>> from keras.applications.resnet50 import ResNet50 >>> from keras.applications import resnet50
Step 2: Select an input
Let us choose an input image, Lotus as specified below −
>>> filename = 'banana.jpg' >>> ## load an image in PIL format >>> original = load_img(filename, target_size = (224, 224)) >>> print('PIL image size',original.size) PIL image size (224, 224) >>> plt.imshow(original) <matplotlib.image.AxesImage object at 0x1304756d8> >>> plt.show()
Here, we have loaded an image (banana.jpg) and displayed it.
Step 3: Convert images into NumPy array
Let us convert our input, Banana into NumPy array, so that it can be passed into the model for the purpose of prediction.
>>> #convert the PIL image to a numpy array >>> numpy_image = img_to_array(original) >>> plt.imshow(np.uint8(numpy_image)) <matplotlib.image.AxesImage object at 0x130475ac8> >>> print('numpy array size',numpy_image.shape) numpy array size (224, 224, 3) >>> # Convert the image / images into batch format >>> image_batch = np.expand_dims(numpy_image, axis = 0) >>> print('image batch size', image_batch.shape) image batch size (1, 224, 224, 3) >>>
Step 4: Model prediction
Let us feed our input into the model to get the predictions

Keras - Pre-Trained Models
In this chapter, we will learn about the pre-trained models in Keras. Let us begin with VGG16.
VGG16
VGG16 is another pre-trained model. It is also trained using ImageNet. The syntax to load the model is as follows −
keras.applications.vgg16.VGG16( include_top = True, weights = 'imagenet', input_tensor = None, input_shape = None, pooling = None, classes = 1000 )
The default input size for this model is 224x224.
MobileNetV2
MobileNetV2 is another pre-trained model. It is also trained uing ImageNet.
The syntax to load the model is as follows −
keras.applications.mobilenet_v2.MobileNetV2 ( input_shape = None, alpha = 1.0, include_top = True, weights = 'imagenet', input_tensor = None, pooling = None, classes = 1000 )
Here,
alpha controls the width of the network. If the value is below 1, decreases the number of filters in each layer. If the value is above 1, increases the number of filters in each layer. If alpha = 1, default number of filters from the paper are used at each layer.
The default input size for this model is 224x224.
InceptionResNetV2
InceptionResNetV2 is another pre-trained model. It is also trained using ImageNet. The syntax to load the model is as follows −
keras.applications.inception_resnet_v2.InceptionResNetV2 ( include_top = True, weights = 'imagenet', input_tensor = None, input_shape = None, pooling = None, classes = 1000)
This model and can be built both with ‘channels_first’ data format (channels, height, width) or ‘channels_last’ data format (height, width, channels).
The default input size for this model is 299x299.
InceptionV3
InceptionV3 is another pre-trained model. It is also trained uing ImageNet. The syntax to load the model is as follows −
keras.applications.inception_v3.InceptionV3 ( include_top = True, weights = 'imagenet', input_tensor = None, input_shape = None, pooling = None, classes = 1000 )
Here,
The default input size for this model is 299x299.
Conclusion
Keras is very simple, extensible and easy to implement neural network API, which can be used to build deep learning applications with high level abstraction. Keras is an optimal choice for deep leaning models.
