Overview of this book

Are you fascinated by how deep learning powers intelligent applications such as self-driving cars, virtual assistants, facial recognition devices, and chatbots to process data and solve complex problems? Whether you are familiar with machine learning or are new to this domain, The Deep Learning Workshop will make it easy for you to understand deep learning with the help of interesting examples and exercises throughout. The book starts by highlighting the relationship between deep learning, machine learning, and artificial intelligence and helps you get comfortable with the TensorFlow 2.0 programming structure using hands-on exercises. You’ll understand neural networks, the structure of a perceptron, and how to use TensorFlow to create and train models. The book will then let you explore the fundamentals of computer vision by performing image recognition exercises with convolutional neural networks (CNNs) using Keras. As you advance, you’ll be able to make your model more powerful by implementing text embedding and sequencing the data using popular deep learning solutions. Finally, you’ll get to grips with bidirectional recurrent neural networks (RNNs) and build generative adversarial networks (GANs) for image synthesis. By the end of this deep learning book, you’ll have learned the skills essential for building deep learning models with TensorFlow and Keras.

Introduction

In the previous chapter, we learned how to implement basic mathematical concepts such as quadratic equations, linear algebra, and matrix multiplication in TensorFlow. Now that we have learned the basics, let's dive into Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs), which are central to artificial intelligence and deep learning.

Deep learning is a subset of machine learning. In supervised learning, we often use traditional machine learning techniques, such as support vector machines or tree-based models, where features are explicitly engineered by humans. However, in deep learning, the model explores and identifies the important features of a labeled dataset without human intervention. ANNs, inspired by biological neurons, have a layered representation, which helps them learn labels incrementally—from the minute details to the complex ones. Consider the example of image recognition: in a given image, an ANN would just as easily identify basic details such as light and...
