Deep Learning with Keras

By: Antonio Gulli, Sujit Pal

Overview of this book

This book starts by introducing you to supervised learning algorithms such as simple linear regression, the classical multilayer perceptron and more sophisticated deep convolutional networks. You will also explore image processing with recognition of handwritten digit images, classification of images into different categories, and advanced objects recognition with related image annotations. An example of identification of salient points for face detection is also provided. Next you will be introduced to Recurrent Networks, which are optimized for processing sequence data such as text, audio or time series. Following that, you will learn about unsupervised learning algorithms such as Autoencoders and the very popular Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). You will also explore non-traditional uses of neural networks as Style Transfer. Finally, you will look at reinforcement learning and its application to AI game playing, another popular direction of research and application of neural networks.

Installing Keras on Microsoft Azure

One way to install Keras on Azure is to install the support for Docker and then get a containerized version of TensorFlow plus Keras. Online, it is also possible to find a detailed set of instructions on how to install Keras and TensorFlow with Docker, but this is essentially what we have seen already in a previous section (for more information, refer to

If you use Theano as the only backend, then Keras can run with just a click by loading a pre-built package available on Cortana Intelligence Gallery (for more information, refer to The following sample shows how to import Theano and Keras into Azure ML directly as a ZIP file and use them in the Execute Python Script module. This example is due to Hai Ning (for more information, refer to, and it essentially...
