Course Description

Not long ago, cutting edge computer vision algorithms couldn’t differentiate between images of cats and dogs. Today, a skilled data scientist equipped with nothing more than a laptop can classify tens of thousands of objects with greater accuracy than the human eye. In this course, you will use TensorFlow 2.0 to develop, train, and make predictions with the models that have powered major advances in recommendation systems, image classification, and FinTech. You will learn both high-level APIs, which will enable you to design and train deep learning models in 15 lines of code; and low-level APIs, which will allow you to move beyond off-the-shelf routines. You will also learn to accurately predict house prices, credit card borrower defaults, and images of sign-language gestures.

  1. 1

    Introduction to TensorFlow

    Free

    What is graph-based computation? In this chapter, you'll learn about the engine that powers TensorFlow and what makes it such an attractive choice for data science projects. We will talk about constants and variables, basic operations, such as addition and multiplication, and advanced operations, such as differentiation. By the end of the chapter, you'll know how to construct and solve graph-based computational models.

  2. Neural Networks in TensorFlow

    In this chapter, you'll learn how to predict credit card default using neural networks defined and trained in TensorFlow. You will define dense layers, apply activation functions, select an optimizer, and apply regularization to reduce overfitting. You will take advantage of TensorFlow's flexibility by using both low-level linear algebra and high-level Keras API operations to define and train models.

  3. Linear Regression in TensorFlow

    Here, you'll use TensorFlow to create a linear model that can predict house prices. You will start by learning how to load and manipulate data in TensorFlow. You'll then learn how to construct loss functions and minimize them to find the optimal parameter values for a linear model. Finally, you'll learn how to reduce the resource constraints of your program by using batch training.

  4. High Level APIs in TensorFlow

    In the final chapter, you'll use high-level APIs in TensorFlow to train a sign language letter classifier. You will use both the sequential and functional Keras APIs to train, validate, and evaluate models. You will also learn how to use the Estimators API to streamline the model definition and training process and to avoid errors.
