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.

Faking videos

A deep fake is a manipulated video produced by the application of deep learning. Potential unethical uses have been around in the media for a while. You can imagine how this would end up in the hands of a propaganda mechanism trying to destabilize a government. Please note that we are advising against producing deep fakes for nefarious purposes.

There are ethical applications of the deep fake technology, and some of them are a lot of fun. Have you ever wondered how Sylvester Stallone may have looked in Terminator? Today you can!

In this recipe, we'll learn how to create a deep fake with Python. We'll download public domain videos of two films, and we'll produce a deep fake by replacing one face with another. Charade was a 1963 film directed by Stanley Donen in a style reminiscent of a Hitchcock film. It pairs off Cary Grant in his mid-fifties and Audrey Hepburn in her early 30s. We thought we'd make the pairing more age-appropriate. After some searching...
