About the course
Recipes for Computer vision, Natural Language Processing, Reinforcement Learning, Finance, and more.
This course is all about some of the most exciting applications of Deep Learning and how to implement them in TensorFlow. You will learn how to build models to solve problems in different domains such as Computer vision, Natural Language Processing, Reinforcement Learning, Finance, and more.
Taking a Cookbook approach, this course presents you with easy-to-follow recipes to show the use of advanced Deep Learning techniques and their implementation in TensorFlow. After taking this tutorial you will be able to start building advanced Deep Learning models with TensorFlow for applications with a wide range of fields.
All the code and supporting files for this course are available on Github at https://github.com/PacktPublishing/-TensorFlow-1.X-Deep-Learning-Recipes-for-Artificial-Intelligence-Applications-v-

Alvaro Fuentes is a Data Scientist with an M.S. in Quantitative Economics and a M.S. in Applied Mathematics with more than 10 years' experience in analytical roles. He worked in the Central Bank of Guatemala as an Economic Analyst, building models for economic and financial data. He founded Quant Company to provide consulting and training services in Data Science topics and has been a consultant for many projects in fields such as: Business, Education, Psychology and Mass Media. He also has taught many (online and on-site) courses to students from around the World in topics such as Data Science, Mathematics, Statistics, R programming, and Python.
Alvaro Fuentes is a big Python fan; he has been working with Python for about 4 years and uses it routinely to analyze data and make predictions. He also has used it in a couple of software projects. He is also a big R fan, and doesn't like the controversy between what is the “best” R or Python; he uses them both. He is also very interested in the Spark approach to big data, and likes the way it simplifies complicated topics. He is not a software engineer or a developer but is generally interested in web technologies. He also has technical skills in R programming, Spark, SQL (PostgreSQL), MS Excel, machine learning, statistical analysis, econometrics, and mathematical modeling. Predictive Analytics is a topic in which he has both professional and teaching experience. He has solved practical problems in his consulting practice using Python tools for predictive analytics and the topics of predictive analytics are part of a more general course on Data Science with Python that he teaches online.
