Artificial Intelligence with Python Cookbook

By: Ben Auffarth

Overview of this book

Artificial intelligence (AI) plays an integral role in automating problem-solving. This involves predicting and classifying data and training agents to execute tasks successfully. This book will teach you how to solve complex problems with the help of independent and insightful recipes ranging from the essentials to advanced methods that have just come out of research. Artificial Intelligence with Python Cookbook starts by showing you how to set up your Python environment and taking you through the fundamentals of data exploration. Moving ahead, you’ll be able to implement heuristic search techniques and genetic algorithms. In addition to this, you'll apply probabilistic models, constraint optimization, and reinforcement learning. As you advance through the book, you'll build deep learning models for text, images, video, and audio, and then delve into algorithmic bias, style transfer, music generation, and AI use cases in the healthcare and insurance industries. Throughout the book, you’ll learn about a variety of tools for problem-solving and gain the knowledge needed to effectively approach complex problems. By the end of this book on AI, you will have the skills you need to write AI and machine learning algorithms, test them, and deploy them for production.

Technical requirements

You really should have a GPU available in order to run some of the recipes in this book, or you would better off using Google Colab. There are some extra steps required to make sure you have the correct NVIDIA graphics drivers installed, along with some additional libraries. Google provides up-to-date instructions on the TensorFlow website at https://www.tensorflow.org/install/gpu. Similarly, PyTorch versions have minimum requirements for NVIDIA driver versions (which you'd have to check manually for each PyTorch version). Let's see how to use dockerized environments to help set this up.

You can find the recipes in this chapter in the GitHub repository of this book at https://github.com/PacktPublishing/Artificial-Intelligence-with-Python-Cookbook.
