Overview

Become a machine learning pro! 

Google TensorFlow has become the darling of financial firms and research organizations, but the technology can be intimidating and the learning curve is steep. Luckily, TensorFlow For Dummies is here to offer you a friendly, easy-to-follow book on the subject. Inside, you’ll find out how to write applications with TensorFlow, while also grasping the concepts underlying machine learning—all without ever losing your cool!

Machine learning has become ubiquitous in modern society, and its applications include language translation, robotics, handwriting analysis, financial prediction, and image recognition. TensorFlow is Google's preeminent toolset for machine learning, and this hands-on guide makes it easy to understand, even for those without a background in artificial intelligence. 

  • Install TensorFlow on your computer
  • Learn the fundamentals of statistical regression and neural networks
  • Visualize the machine learning process with TensorBoard
  • Perform image recognition with convolutional neural networks (CNNs)
  • Analyze sequential data with recurrent neural networks (RNNs)
  • Execute TensorFlow on mobile devices and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

If you’re a manager or software developer looking to use TensorFlow for machine learning, this is the book you’ll want to have close by.

TensorFlow For Dummies Cheat Sheet

TensorFlow is Google’s premier framework for machine learning, and each new version brings a wide range of capabilities and features. After you’ve ascended the learning curve, you can write sophisticated machine-learning applications and execute them at high speed. But rising up the learning curve isn’t easy — with great power comes great complexity. To help you in your climb, you need to be aware of TensorFlow’s data types, the TensorBoard utility, and the deployment of applications to Google’s Machine Learning Engine.
