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.

Defining the problem statement

Any project should start with a well-defined problem statement or the project development is bound to suffer. The problem statement governs all the major steps involved in an overall project development pipeline, starting from project planning to project cost.

In a DL-based web project, for example, the problem statement will direct us to the following:

  • Determine what kind of data we would need.
  • How much complexity there would be in terms of code, planning, and other resources.
  • What kind of user interface we would develop.
  • How much human involvement there would be so that an estimate can be prepared on the project’s manpower and so on.

Hence, a well-defined problem statement is really required in order for us to get started with further project development.
