Python Deep Learning Cookbook

By: Indra den Bakker

Overview of this book

Deep Learning is revolutionizing a wide range of industries. For many applications, deep learning has proven to outperform humans by making faster and more accurate predictions. This book provides a top-down and bottom-up approach to demonstrate deep learning solutions to real-world problems in different areas. These applications include Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Time Series, and Robotics. The Python Deep Learning Cookbook presents technical solutions to the issues presented, along with a detailed explanation of the solutions. Furthermore, a discussion on corresponding pros and cons of implementing the proposed solution using one of the popular frameworks like TensorFlow, PyTorch, Keras and CNTK is provided. The book includes recipes that are related to the basic concepts of neural networks. All techniques s, as well as classical networks topologies. The main purpose of this book is to provide Python programmers a detailed list of recipes to apply deep learning to common and not-so-common scenarios.

Chapter 12. Hyperparameter Selection, Tuning, and Neural Network Learning

This chapter provides a collection of recipes on the many aspects involved in the learning process of a neural network. The overall objective of the recipes is to provide very neat and specific tricks to boost networks' performances.

  • Visualizing training with TensorBoard and Keras
  • Working with batches and mini-batches
  • Using grid search for parameter tuning
  • Learning rates and learning rate schedulers
  • Comparing optimizers
  • Determining the depth of the network
  • Adding dropouts to prevent overfitting
  • Making a model more robust with data augmentation
