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.

A brief introduction to Django web development

Django is one of the most popular frameworks for web development using Python. The framework is lightweight, robust, and actively maintained by the community, which quickly patches security holes and adds new features. In this book, we've covered the Flask framework, which is essentially a bare-bones framework for Python web development. However, Django comes with a lot of built-in features that implement state-of-the-art methods and practices.

A Django project is initially structured in the following manner:

These files are auto-generated when you create a new Django project using the django-admin tool. The top-level directory, mysite, represents the name of the Django project. Each Django project contains apps. Apps are similar to the concept of modules in software development. They are usually independent pieces of the complete...
