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.

As a general overview, web applications that hone the power of DL have a few set methods to do so via APIs, in-browser JavaScript, or by silently embedding DL models in the backend of the application. In this chapter, we saw how to use the most common of these methods—an API-based DL web application—while at the same time, we saw a rough overview of how to design similar solutions. We covered the thought process that goes into the identification of the problem statement and a subsequent solution, along with the pitfalls and pain points to avoid during the design of a web application that integrates DL models.

In the next chapter, we will cover an end to end project that integrates DL on web applications for security purposes. We will see how DL can help us recognize suspicious activity and block spam users.
