Hands-On Python Deep Learning for the Web

By: Anubhav Singh, Sayak Paul

Overview of this book

When used effectively, deep learning techniques can help you develop intelligent web apps. In this book, you'll cover the latest tools and technological practices that are being used to implement deep learning in web development using Python. Starting with the fundamentals of machine learning, you'll focus on DL and the basics of neural networks, including common variants such as convolutional neural networks (CNNs). You'll learn how to integrate them into websites with the frontends of different standard web tech stacks. The book then helps you gain practical experience of developing a deep learning-enabled web app using Python libraries such as Django and Flask by creating RESTful APIs for custom models. Later, you'll explore how to set up a cloud environment for deep learning-based web deployments on Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Next, you'll learn how to use Microsoft's intelligent Emotion API, which can detect a person's emotions through a picture of their face. You'll also get to grips with deploying real-world websites, in addition to learning how to secure websites using reCAPTCHA and Cloudflare. Finally, you'll use NLP to integrate a voice UX through Dialogflow on your web pages. By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to deploy intelligent web apps and websites with the help of effective tools and practices.

Getting started in AWS

Before using any AWS services or APIs, you will have to create your AWS account. In this section, we will quickly go through the steps to create an account in AWS:

  1. The first step is to go to You should land on a page that resembles the following:

  1. Then click on the Create an AWS Account button, which should take you to the following page:

  1. Fill in the fields and click on Continue.
  2. The portal will ask for some more mandatory information from you. It will also ask you to register a payment method in order to verify your details.
If you do not provide this, you will not be entitled to use the free tier of AWS facilities.
  1. Towards the very last step of your registration, you will be asked to choose between three plans—Free, Developer, and Business. Choose whichever is relevant to your needs and proceed.
