Beginning Application Development with TensorFlow and Keras

This Beginning Application Development with TensorFlow and Keras training class covers the development of a real-world application powered by TensorFlow and Keras. TensorFlow is popular software created by Google (and open source contributors) to facilitate the development of machine learning applications, particularly those that use deep learning. Keras is an interface that facilitates the development of deep learning models.

The course starts with a hands-on introduction to TensorFlow and Keras. Then we move to the architecture of an example model, selecting the right layers to solve an example problem (predicting Bitcoin prices). Then we move on to the training and evaluation of the model. We will finish by deploying the model as a real-world product: a web-application (with an HTTP API) that uses Flask to make our model predictions available to the world.

This is a 2-day course packaged with the right balance of theory and hands-on activities that will help you easily learn TensorFlow and Keras from scratch.

This course is designed for developers, analysts, and data scientists interested in developing applications using TensorFlow and Keras.

Goals
