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.

Some widely known deep learning APIs

In this section, we are going to take a look at some of the most widely used APIs, which are deployed for a variety of deep learning tasks, such as image recognition, sentiment detection from an image, sentiment classification, speech-to-text conversion, and so on. To limit our discussion in this section, we will divide deep learning tasks into two broad groups:

  • Computer vision and image processing
  • Natural language processing

We will then list some of the common tasks related to each of these groups and discuss the APIs that can be used to accomplish those tasks.

Let's now quickly list some common deep learning tasks and assign them to their categories:

  • Computer vision and image processing:
    • Image search: Just like Google Search, image search engines allow us to search for images similar to a particular image.
    • Image detection:...
