Deep learning, hydroponics, and medical marijuana

In today’s blog post we will investigate a practical use case of applying deep learning to hydroponics, a type of method used to grow plants without soil using mineral-rich nutrient solutions in a water solvent. Specifically, you will learn how to train a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) using Keras to automatically classify root health without […]

Keras vs. TensorFlow – Which one is better and which one should I learn?

Should I be using Keras vs. TensorFlow for my project? Is TensorFlow or Keras better? Should I invest my time studying TensorFlow? Or Keras? The above are all examples of questions I hear echoed throughout my inbox, social media, and even in-person conversations with deep learning researchers, practitioners, and engineers. I even receive questions related […]

Keras Tutorial: How to get started with Keras, Deep Learning, and Python

Inside this Keras tutorial, you will discover how easy it is to get started with deep learning and Python. You will use the Keras deep learning library to train your first neural network on a custom image dataset, and from there, you’ll implement your first Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) as well. The inspiration for this […]

An interview with Francois Chollet

In today’s blog post, I interview arguably one of the most important researchers and practitioners in modern day deep learning, Francois Chollet. Francois is not only the creator of the Keras deep learning library, but he’s also a Google AI researcher. He will also be speaking at PyImageConf 2018 in August of this year. Inside this interview Francois discusses: […]

A scalable Keras + deep learning REST API

In today’s blog post we are going to create a deep learning REST API that wraps a Keras model in an efficient, scalable manner. Our Keras + deep learning REST API will be capable of batch processing images, scaling to multiple machines (including multiple web servers and Redis instances), and round-robin scheduling when placed behind […]
