About this book
PyTorch is gaining the attention of deep learning researchers and data science professionals due to its accessibility and efficiency, along with the fact that it's more native to the Python way of development. This book will get you up and running with this cutting-edge deep learning library, effectively guiding you through implementing deep learning concepts.
In this second edition, you'll learn the fundamental aspects that power modern deep learning, and explore the new features of the PyTorch 1.x library. You'll understand how to solve real-world problems using CNNs, RNNs, and LSTMs, along with discovering state-of-the-art modern deep learning architectures, such as ResNet, DenseNet, and Inception. You'll then focus on applying neural networks to domains such as computer vision and NLP. Later chapters will demonstrate how to build, train, and scale a model with PyTorch and also cover complex neural networks such as GANs and autoencoders for producing text and images. In addition to this, you'll explore GPU computing and how it can be used to perform heavy computations. Finally, you'll learn how to work with deep learning-based architectures for transfer learning and reinforcement learning problems.
By the end of this book, you'll be able to confidently and easily implement deep learning applications in PyTorch.
