The Deep Learning with Keras Workshop: Learn how to define and train neural network models with just a few lines of code
Moocarme, Matthew, Abdolahnejad, Mahla, Bhagwat, Ritesh
Discover how to leverage Keras, the powerful and easy-to-use open source Python library for developing and evaluating deep learning models
- Get to grips with various model evaluation metrics, including sensitivity, specificity, and AUC scores
- Explore advanced concepts such as sequential memory and sequential modeling
- Reinforce your skills with real-world development, screencasts, and knowledge checks
New experiences can be intimidating, but not this one This beginner's guide to deep learning is here to help you explore deep learning from scratch with Keras, and be on your way to training your first ever neural networks.
What sets Keras apart from other deep learning frameworks is its simplicity. With over two hundred thousand users, Keras has a stronger adoption in industry and the research community than any other deep learning framework.
The Deep Learning with Keras Workshop starts by introducing you to the fundamental concepts of machine learning using the scikit-learn package. After learning how to perform the linear transformations that are necessary for building neural networks, you'll build your first neural network with the Keras library. As you advance, you'll learn how to build multi-layer neural networks and recognize when your model is underfitting or overfitting to the training data. With the help of practical exercises, you'll learn to use cross-validation techniques to evaluate your models and then choose the optimal hyperparameters to fine-tune their performance. Finally, you'll explore recurrent neural networks and learn how to train them to predict values in sequential data.
By the end of this book, you'll have developed the skills you need to confidently train your own neural network models.

Matthew Moocarme is a director and senior data scientist in Viacom's advertising science team. As a data scientist at Viacom, he designs data-driven solutions to help Viacom gain insights, streamline workflows, and solve complex problems using data science and machine learning. Matthew lives in New York City and outside of work enjoys combining deep learning with music theory. He is a classically-trained physicist, holding a Ph.D in physics from The Graduate Center of CUNY and is an active artificial intelligence developer, researcher, practitioner, and educator.
Mahla Abdolahnejad is a Ph.D. candidate in systems and computer engineering with Carleton University, Canada. She also holds a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in biomedical engineering, which first exposed her to the field of artificial intelligence and artificial neural networks, in particular. Her Ph.D. research is focused on deep unsupervised learning for computer vision applications. She is particularly interested in exploring the differences between a human's way of learning from the visual world and a machine's way of learning from the visual world, and how to push machine learning algorithms toward learning and thinking like humans.
Ritesh Bhagwat has a master's degree in applied mathematics with a specialization in computer science. He has over 14 years of experience in data-driven technologies and has led and been a part of complex projects ranging from data warehousing and business intelligence to machine learning and artificial intelligence.
