Overview of this book

Machine learning is transforming the way we understand and interact with the world around us. This book is the perfect guide for you to put your knowledge and skills into practice and use the Python ecosystem to cover key domains in machine learning. This second edition covers a range of libraries from the Python ecosystem, including TensorFlow and Keras, to help you implement real-world machine learning projects. The book begins by giving you an overview of machine learning with Python. With the help of complex datasets and optimized techniques, you’ll go on to understand how to apply advanced concepts and popular machine learning algorithms to real-world projects. Next, you’ll cover projects from domains such as predictive analytics to analyze the stock market and recommendation systems for GitHub repositories. In addition to this, you’ll also work on projects from the NLP domain to create a custom news feed using frameworks such as scikit-learn, TensorFlow, and Keras. Following this, you’ll learn how to build an advanced chatbot, and scale things up using PySpark. In the concluding chapters, you can look forward to exciting insights into deep learning and you'll even create an application using computer vision and neural networks. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to analyze data seamlessly and make a powerful impact through your projects.

Create a Custom Newsfeed

I read a lot. Some might even say compulsively. I've been known to consume more than a hundred articles on some days. But despite this, I frequently find myself searching for more to read. I suffer from this sneaking suspicion that I have missed something interesting, and will forever suffer a gap in my knowledge!

If you suffer from similar symptoms, fear not, because in this chapter, I'm going to reveal one simple trick to finding all the articles you want to read without having to dig through the dozens that you don't.

By the end of this chapter, you'll have learned how to build a system that understands your taste in news, and will send you a personally tailored newsletter each day.

Here's what we'll cover in this chapter:

  • Creating a supervised training set with the Pocket app
  • Leveraging the Pocket API to retrieve stories...
