Written by three experts in the field Deep Learning is the only comprehensive book on the subject -- Elon Musk cochair of OpenAI cofounder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceXDeep learning is a form of machine learning that enables computers to learn from experience and understand the world in terms of a hierarchy of concepts Because the computer gathers knowledge from experience there is no need for a human computer operator to formally specify all the knowledge that the computer needs The hierarchy of concepts allows the computer to learn complicated concepts by building them out of simpler ones a graph of these hierarchies would be many layers deep This book introduces a broad range of topics in deep learning The text offers mathematical and conceptual background covering relevant concepts in linear algebra probability theory and information theory numerical computation and machine learning It describes deep learning techniques used by practitioners in industry including deep feedforward networks regularization optimization algorithms convolutional networks sequence modeling and practical methodology and it surveys such applications as natural language processing speech recognition computer vision online recommendation systems... bioinformatics and videogames Finally the book offers research perspectives covering such theoretical topics as linear factor models autoencoders representation learning structured probabilistic models Monte Carlo methods the partition function approximate inference and deep generative models Deep Learning can be used by undergraduate or graduate students planning careers in either industry or research and by software engineers who want to begin using deep learning in their products or platforms A website offers supplementary material for both readers and instructors more
Graphics in this book are printed in black and white Through a series of recent breakthroughs deep learning has boosted the entire field of machine learning Now even programmers who know close to nothing about this technology can use simple efficient tools to implement programs capable of learning from data This practical book shows you how By using concrete examples minimal theory and two production-ready Python frameworks scikit-learn and TensorFlow author Aur lien G ron helps you gain an intuitive understanding of the concepts and tools for building intelligent systems You ll learn a range of techniques starting with simple linear regression and progressing to deep neural networks With exercises in each chapter to help you apply what you ve learned all you need is programming experience to get started Explore the machine learning landscape particularly neural netsUse scikit-learn to track an example machine-learning project end-to-endExplore several training models including support vector machines decision trees random forests and ensemble methodsUse the TensorFlow library to build and train neural netsDive into neural net architectures including convolutional nets recurrent nets and deep reinforcement learningLearn... techniques for training and scaling deep neural netsApply practical code examples without acquiring excessive machine learning theory or algorithm detailsmore
Foreword by Steven Pinker author of Thr Better Angels of our Nature Blending the informed analysis of The Signal and the Noise with the instructive iconoclasm of Think Like a Freak a fascinating illuminating and witty look at what the vast amounts of information now instantly available to us reveals about ourselves and our world provided we ask the right questions By the end of an average day in the early twenty-first century human beings searching the internet will amass eight trillion gigabytes of data This staggering amount of information unprecedented in history can tell us a great deal about who we are the fears desires and behaviors that drive us and the conscious and unconscious decisions we make From the profound to the mundane we can gain astonishing knowledge about the human psyche that less than twenty years ago seemed unfathomable Everybody Lies offers fascinating surprising and sometimes laugh-out-loud insights into everything from economics to ethics to sports to race to sex gender and more all drawn from the world of big data What percentage of white voters didn t vote for Barack Obama because he s black Does where you go to school effect how successful you are in life Do parents secretly favor boy children over... girls Do violent films affect the crime rate Can you beat the stock market How regularly do we lie about our sex lives and who s more self-conscious about sex men or women Investigating these questions and a host of others Seth Stephens-Davidowitz offers revelations that can help us understand ourselves and our lives better Drawing on studies and experiments on how we really live and think he demonstrates in fascinating and often funny ways the extent to which all the world is indeed a lab With conclusions ranging from strange-but-true to thought-provoking to disturbing he explores the power of this digital truth serum and its deeper potential revealing biases deeply embedded within us information we can use to change our culture and the questions we re afraid to ask that might be essential to our health both emotional and physical All of us are touched by big data everyday and its influence is multiplying Everybody Lies challenges us to think differently about how we see it and the world more
