Deep Learning for Beginners (Packt)
Wednesday, 07 October 2020

Intended as "A beginner's guide to getting up and running with deep learning from scratch using Python", this book is for those who already have the basic mathematical and programming knowledge required to get started. Dr. Pablo Rivas begins with a basic overview of machine learning, setting up popular Python frameworks, and preparing data by cleaning and preprocessing it for deep learning, before going on to explore neural networks. Later sections cover hands-on training single and multiple layers of neurons, as well as popular neural network architectures such as CNNs, RNNs, AEs, VAEs, and GANs with the help of simple examples.
