Overview of this book

AI and Deep Learning are transforming the way we understand software, making computers more intelligent than we could even imagine just a decade ago. Deep Learning algorithms are being used across a broad range of industries – as the fundamental driver of AI, being able to tackle Deep Learning is going to a vital and valuable skill not only within the tech world but also for the wider global economy that depends upon knowledge and insight for growth and success. It’s something that’s moving beyond the realm of data science – if you’re a Java developer, this book gives you a great opportunity to expand your skillset. Starting with an introduction to basic machine learning algorithms, to give you a solid foundation, Deep Learning with Java takes you further into this vital world of stunning predictive insights and remarkable machine intelligence. Once you’ve got to grips with the fundamental mathematical principles, you’ll start exploring neural networks and identify how to tackle challenges in large networks using advanced algorithms. You will learn how to use the DL4J library and apply Deep Learning to a range of real-world use cases. Featuring further guidance and insights to help you solve challenging problems in image processing, speech recognition, language modeling, this book will make you rethink what you can do with Java, showing you how to use it for truly cutting-edge predictive insights. As a bonus, you’ll also be able to get to grips with Theano and Caffe, two of the most important tools in Deep Learning today. By the end of the book, you’ll be ready to tackle Deep Learning with Java. Wherever you’ve come from – whether you’re a data scientist or Java developer – you will become a part of the Deep Learning revolution!

Machine learning application flow

We have looked at the methods that machine learning has and how these methods recognize patterns. In this section, we'll see which flow is taken, or has to be taken, by data mining using machine learning. A decision boundary is set based on the model parameters in each of the machine learning methods, but we can't say that adjusting the model parameters is the only thing we have to care about. There is another troublesome problem, and it is actually the weakest point of machine learning: feature engineering. Deciding which features are to be created from raw data, that is, the analysis subject, is a necessary step in making an appropriate classifier. And doing this, which is the same as adjusting the model parameters, also requires a massive amount of trial and error. In some cases, feature engineering requires far more effort than deciding a parameter.

Thus, when we simply say "machine learning," there are certain tasks that need to be completed in advance...
