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.

Setting up your daily personal newsletter

In order to set up a personal email with news stories, we're going to utilize IFTTT again. As before, in Chapter 3, Build an App to Find Cheap Airfares, we'll use the Webhooks channel to send a POST request. But this time, the payload will be our news stories. If you haven't set up the Webhooks channel, do so now. Instructions can be found in Chapter 3, Build an App to Find Cheap Airfares. You should also set up the Gmail channel. Once that is complete, we'll add a recipe to combine the two. Follow the steps to set up IFTTT:

  1. First, click New Applet from the IFTTT home page and then click +this. Then, search for the Webhooks channel:
  1. Select that, and then select Receive a web request:
  1. Then, give the request a name. I'm using news_event:
  1. Finish by clicking Create trigger. Next, click on +that to set up...
