Overview of this book

TensorFlow is an open source software library for Machine Intelligence. The independent recipes in this book will teach you how to use TensorFlow for complex data computations and allow you to dig deeper and gain more insights into your data than ever before. With the help of this book, you will work with recipes for training models, model evaluation, sentiment analysis, regression analysis, clustering analysis, artificial neural networks, and more. You will explore RNNs, CNNs, GANs, reinforcement learning, and capsule networks, each using Google's machine learning library, TensorFlow. Through real-world examples, you will get hands-on experience with linear regression techniques with TensorFlow. Once you are familiar and comfortable with the TensorFlow ecosystem, you will be shown how to take it to production. By the end of the book, you will be proficient in the field of machine intelligence using TensorFlow. You will also have good insight into deep learning and be capable of implementing machine learning algorithms in real-world scenarios.

Parallelizing TensorFlow

To extend our reach for parallelizing TensorFlow, we can also perform separate operations from our graph on entirely different machines in a distributed manner. This recipe will show you how.

Getting ready

A few months after the release of TensorFlow, Google released Distributed TensorFlow, which was a big upgrade to the TensorFlow ecosystem, and one that allowed a TensorFlow cluster to be set up (on separate worker machines) and share the computational task of training and evaluating models. Using Distributed TensorFlow is as easy as setting up parameters for workers and then assigning different jobs to different workers.

In this recipe, we will set up two local workers and assign them to different...
