Description

Many problems deemed “impossible” only five years ago have now been solved by deep learning—from playing Go to recognizing what’s in an image to translating languages. Software engineers are eager to adopt these new technologies as soon as they come out of research labs. And now you can learn how.

Martin Gorner leads a hands-on introduction to recurrent neural networks and TensorFlow. You’ll explore the basics of stateless and stateful RNNs and discover how they can be used in time series analysis. Along the way, you’ll learn tips, engineering best practices, and pointers to apply in your own projects—no PhD required. Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) accelerators are used to speed up training times.

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Familiarity with basic neural network concepts such as fully connected layers, activation functions, and so on

Materials or downloads needed in advance

  • A WiFi-enabled laptop

What you'll learn

  • Learn to build recurrent neural networks in Keras
  • Understand stateless versus stateful RNNs and how to train on TPUs
