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.

Revisiting the fundamentals of ML

We have already seen what is meant by ML. In this section, we will focus on several terminologies such as supervised learning and unsupervised learning, and we will be taking a look at the steps involved in a standard ML workflow. But you may ask: why ML? We are supposed to learn about the applications of DL in this book. We just learned that DL is a type of ML only. Therefore, a quick overview of the basic ML-related concepts will certainly help. Let's start with several types of ML and how they differ from each other. 

Types of ML

ML encompasses a multitude of algorithms and topics. While every such algorithm that makes up an ML model is nothing but a mathematical computation on...
