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.

Deep Learning on Microsoft Azure Using Python

We are going to end our cloud API exploration journey with this chapter. So far, we have gently introduced ourselves to the wonderful world of APIs, specifically the APIs that let us carry out deep learning with ease. We have seen how to consume REST APIs and use them programmatically. Like Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft also offers its own cloud service platform, which is called Azure. As in previous chapters, we will only be focusing on the deep learning-based solutions that Azure has to offer. We will be shifting gears a bit and will also take a look at Microsoft's Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK), which is a deep learning framework like Keras.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Setting up your account in Azure
  • A quick walk-through of the deep learning solutions offered by Azure...
