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.

Combining everything together

In this section, we will combine everything we have illustrated so far and create a classifier for the iris dataset.

Getting ready

The iris dataset is described in more detail in the Working with data sources recipe in Chapter 1, Getting Started with TensorFlow. We will load this data and make a simple binary classifier to predict whether a flower is the species Iris setosa or not. To be clear, this dataset has three species, but we will only predict whether a flower is a single species, I. setosa or not, giving us a binary classifier. We will start by loading the libraries and data, then transform the target accordingly.
