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.

Nearest-Neighbor Methods

This chapter will focus on nearest-neighbor methods, and how to implement them in TensorFlow. We will start with an introduction to the methods, and we will illustrate how to implement various forms. The chapter will end with examples of address matching and image recognition.

In this chapter, we will cover the following:

  • Working with nearest-neighbors
  • Working with text based distances
  • Computing mixed distance functions
  • Using an address matching example
  • Using nearest-neighbors for image recognition
Note that all of the latest code is available at: and at the Packt repository:
