## What You Know About Deep Learning Is A Lie

Getting started in deep learning is a struggle. It’s a struggle because deep learning is taught by academics, for academics. If you’re a developer (or practitioner), you’re different. You want results. The way practitioners learn new technologies is by developing prototypes that deliver value quickly. This is a top-down approach to learning, but it is not the way […]

## What is Deep Learning?

Deep Learning is a subfield of machine learning concerned with algorithms inspired by the structure and function of the brain called artificial neural networks. If you are just starting out in the field of deep learning or you had some experience with neural networks some time ago, you may be confused. I know I was confused […]

## 5 Step Life-Cycle for Neural Network Models in Keras

Deep learning neural networks are very easy to create and evaluate in Python with Keras, but you must follow a strict model life-cycle. In this post you will discover the step-by-step life-cycle for creating, training and evaluating deep learning neural networks in Keras and how to make predictions with a trained model. After reading this […]

## How to Grid Search Hyperparameters for Deep Learning Models in Python With Keras

Hyperparameter optimization is a big part of deep learning. The reason is that neural networks are notoriously difficult to configure and there are a lot of parameters that need to be set. On top of that, individual models can be very slow to train. In this post you will discover how you can use the grid […]

## Text Generation With LSTM Recurrent Neural Networks in Python with Keras

Recurrent neural networks can also be used as generative models. This means that in addition to being used for predictive models (making predictions) they can learn the sequences of a problem and then generate entirely new plausible sequences for the problem domain. Generative models like this are useful not only to study how well a […]

## Understanding Stateful LSTM Recurrent Neural Networks in Python with Keras

A powerful and popular recurrent neural network is the long short-term model network or LSTM. It is widely used because the architecture overcomes the vanishing and exposing gradient problem that plagues all recurrent neural networks, allowing very large and very deep networks to be created. Like other recurrent neural networks, LSTM networks maintain state, and […]

## Sequence Classification with LSTM Recurrent Neural Networks in Python with Keras

Sequence classification is a predictive modeling problem where you have some sequence of inputs over space or time and the task is to predict a category for the sequence. What makes this problem difficult is that the sequences can vary in length, be comprised of a very large vocabulary of input symbols and may require […]

## Time Series Prediction with LSTM Recurrent Neural Networks in Python with Keras

Time series prediction problems are a difficult type of predictive modeling problem. Unlike regression predictive modeling, time series also adds the complexity of a sequence dependence among the input variables. A powerful type of neural network designed to handle sequence dependence is called recurrent neural networks. The Long Short-Term Memory network or LSTM network is […]

## Time Series Prediction With Deep Learning in Keras

Time Series prediction is a difficult problem both to frame and to address with machine learning. In this post, you will discover how to develop neural network models for time series prediction in Python using the Keras deep learning library. After reading this post you will know: About the airline passengers univariate time series prediction […]
