Machine learning from scratch in TensorFlow
What you'll learn, and how you can apply it
- Understand machine learning, neural networks, deep learning, and artificial intelligence basic concepts
- Learn what TensorFlow is and what applications it's good for
- Discover how to create deep learning models for classification and regression using TensorFlow
- Evaluate the benefits and disadvantages of using TensorFlow over other machine learning software
Who is this presentation for?
- You're a software engineer or programmer who wants to develop a basic understanding of machine learning.
- You have experience modeling or have a background in data science, and you want to learn TensorFlow.
- A working knowledge of Python
- Familiarity with matrices, modeling, and statistics
Hardware and/or installation requirements:
- A WiFi-enabled laptop (You'll be given a cloud instance with TensorFlow.)
The TensorFlow library provides for the use of computational graphs with automatic parallelization across resources. This architecture is ideal for implementing neural networks. Dylan Bargteil explores TensorFlow’s capabilities in Python, demonstrating how to build machine learning algorithms piece by piece and how to use TensorFlow’s Keras API with several hands-on applications.
- Introduction to TensorFlow
- Iterative algorithms
- Machine learning
