Overview of this book

This Learning Path is your complete guide to quickly getting to grips with popular machine learning algorithms. You'll be introduced to the most widely used algorithms in supervised, unsupervised, and semi-supervised machine learning, and learn how to use them in the best possible manner. Ranging from Bayesian models to the MCMC algorithm to Hidden Markov models, this Learning Path will teach you how to extract features from your dataset and perform dimensionality reduction by making use of Python-based libraries. You'll bring the use of TensorFlow and Keras to build deep learning models, using concepts such as transfer learning, generative adversarial networks, and deep reinforcement learning. Next, you'll learn the advanced features of TensorFlow1.x, such as distributed TensorFlow with TF clusters, deploy production models with TensorFlow Serving. You'll implement different techniques related to object classification, object detection, image segmentation, and more. By the end of this Learning Path, you'll have obtained in-depth knowledge of TensorFlow, making you the go-to person for solving artificial intelligence problems This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products: • Mastering Machine Learning Algorithms by Giuseppe Bonaccorso • Mastering TensorFlow 1.x by Armando Fandango • Deep Learning for Computer Vision by Rajalingappaa Shanmugamani

Chapter 20. Getting Started

Computer vision is the science of understanding or manipulating images and videos. Computer vision has a lot of applications, including autonomous driving, industrial inspection, and augmented reality. The use of deep learning for computer vision can be categorized into multiple categories: classification, detection, segmentation, and generation, both in images and videos. In this book, you will learn how to train deep learning models for computer vision applications and deploy them on multiple platforms. We will use TensorFlow, a popular python library for deep learning throughout this book for the examples. In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • The basics and vocabulary of deep learning
  • How deep learning meets computer vision?
  • Setting up the development environment that will be used for the examples covered in this book
  • Getting a feel for TensorFlow, along with its powerful tools, such as TensorBoard and TensorFlow Serving
