Are you a data analyst, data scientist, or a researcher looking for a guide that will help you increase the speed and efficiency of your machine learning activities? If yes, then this course is for you!
Google's brainchild TensorFlow, in its first year, has more than 6000 open source repositories online. It has helped engineers, researchers, and many others make significant progress with everything from voice/sound recognition to language translation and face recognition. It has also proved to be useful in the early detection of skin cancer and preventing blindness in diabetics. TensorFlow is designed to make distributed machine and deep learning easy for everyone, but using it requires understanding some general principles and algorithms. Furthermore, the latest release of TensorFlow comes with lots of exciting features. It’s incredibly fast, flexible, and more production-ready than ever!
The aim of this course is to help you tackle common commercial machine learning and deep learning problems that you’re facing in your day-to-day activities.
What is included?
Let’s take a look at the learning journey. The course begins with an introduction to machine learning and deep learning. You will explore the main features and capabilities of TensorFlow such as a computation graph, data model, programming model, and TensorBoard. The key highlight here is that this course will teach you how to upgrade your code from TensorFlow 0.x to TensorFlow 1.x. Next, you will learn the different techniques of machine learning such as clustering, linear regression, and logistic regression with the help of real-world projects and examples. You will also learn the concepts of reinforcement learning, the Q-learning algorithm, and the OpenAI Gym framework. Moving ahead, you will dive into neural networks and see how convolution, recurrent, and deep neural networks work and the main operation types used in building them. Next, you will learn advanced concepts such as GPU computing and multimedia programming. Finally, the course will demonstrate an example on deep learning on Android using TensorFlow.
By the end of this course, you will have a solid knowledge of the all-new TensorFlow and be able to implement it efficiently in production.
