About

Developers struggle to find an easy-to-follow learning resource for implementing Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) models. RNNs are the state-of-the-art model in deep learning for dealing with sequential data. From language translation to generating captions for an image, RNNs are used to continuously improve results. This book will teach you the fundamentals of RNNs, with example applications in Python and the TensorFlow library. The examples are accompanied by the right combination of theoretical knowledge and real-world implementations of concepts to build a solid foundation of neural network modeling.

Your journey starts with the simplest RNN model, where you can grasp the fundamentals. The book then builds on this by proposing more advanced and complex algorithms. We use them to explain how a typical state-of-the-art RNN model works. From generating text to building a language translator, we show how some of today's most powerful AI applications work under the hood.

After reading the book, you will be confident with the fundamentals of RNNs, and be ready to pursue further study, along with developing skills in this exciting field.

Simeon Kostadinov

Simeon Kostadinoff works for a startup called Speechify which aims to help people go through their readings faster by converting any text into speech. Simeon is Machine Learning enthusiast who writes a blog and works on various projects on the side. He enjoys reading different research papers and implement some of them in code. He was ranked number 1 in mathematics during his senior year of high school and thus he has deep passion about understanding how the deep learning models work under the hood. His specific knowledge in Recurrent Neural Networks comes from several courses that he has taken at Stanford University and University of Birmingham. They helped in understanding how to apply his theoretical knowledge into practice and build powerful models. In addition, he recently became a Stanford Scholar Initiative which includes working in a team of Machine Learning researchers on a specific deep learning research paper.
