Google's TensorFlow is a game changer in the world of machine learning. It has made machine learning faster, simpler, and more accessible than ever before. This book will teach you how to easily get started with machine learning using the power of Python and TensorFlow 1.x.

Firstly, you’ll cover the basic installation procedure and explore the capabilities of TensorFlow 1.x. This is followed by training and running the first classifier, and coverage of the unique features of the library including data flow graphs, training, and the visualization of performance with TensorBoard—all within an example-rich context using problems from multiple industries. You’ll be able to further explore text and image analysis, and be introduced to CNN models and their setup in TensorFlow 1.x. Next, you’ll implement a complete real-life production system from training to serving a deep learning model. As you advance you’ll learn about Amazon Web Services (AWS) and create a deep neural network to solve a video action recognition problem. Lastly, you’ll convert the Caffe model to TensorFlow and be introduced to the high-level TensorFlow library, TensorFlow-Slim.

By the end of this book, you will be geared up to take on any challenges of implementing TensorFlow 1.x in your machine learning environment.

  • Enter the new era of second-generation machine learning with Python with this practical and insightful guide
  • Set up TensorFlow 1.x for actual industrial use, including high-performance setup aspects such as multi-GPU support
  • Create pipelines for training and using applying classifiers using raw real-world data
