Deep Learning – Introducción práctica con Keras En este libro el lector encontrará una guía para adentrarse de manera práctica al Deep Learning con la ayuda de la librería Keras. Aunque el Deep Learning se sustenta en fascinantes matemáticas, estas no son estrictamente necesarias para poder iniciarse e incluso crear proyectos que generen valor a la empresa gracias a librerías Python cómo la de Keras. Este libro es la primera parte de uno completo que espero poder acabar y publicar a principios del próximo año.   www.JordiTorres.Barcelona/DeepLearning    

New release of TensorFlow with distributed computing support

2017-08-08T22:45:33+00:00 April 13th, 2016|

Few hours ago Google announced his TensorFlow 0.8 that includes distributed computing support. As we already presented in this blog, distributed TensorFlow is powered by the high-performance gRPC library, which supports training on hundreds of machines in parallel according Google post. It complements the recent announcement of Google Cloud Machine Learning, which enables us to use the Google Cloud Platform. The post also announces that they have published a distributed trainer for the Inception image classification neural network in the TensorFlow models repository. The distributed trainer also enables us to scale out training using a cluster management system like Kubernetes from Google. Furthermore, once we have trained our model, we can deploy to production and speed up inference using TensorFlow Serving on Kubernetes. Beyond distributed Inception, the 0.8 release includes new libraries for defining our own distributed models. Using the distributed trainer, they trained the Inception network to 78% [...]

Calçotada season and the new Deep Learning book

The calçotada season is coming to an end. Keep this excellent recipe from Tampa Bay Times for next year. Now it is time to read First contact with TensorFlow book. Already available a paper version, PDF version and Kindle version. Also this book is going to be freely available on-line in my web page (html version) next April 23th , Saint George's day  (Sant Jordi Day).

Cognitive Computing: Issues & Challenges

2017-08-08T22:46:11+00:00 April 7th, 2016|

  (copy of a post appeared on BSC-CNS blog) Our last newsletter issue presents the BSC view about the challenges of Cognitive Computing. Some of you asked us a more extensive explanation. Here we go! Cognitive Computing? Intelligent systems are mainstream now in most industries [1]. They use artificial intelligence, natural language processing, machine learning, artificial neural networks, streaming analytics, unstructured data and Internet of Things, among many other techniques and technologies. Many of the technologies and events of the every day’s life are directly or indirectly influenced by these intelligent systems. Furthermore, the use of these intelligent systems will impact our society massively: new medical models for personalized medicine, cars with cruise control, drones or robots of all types, etc. We are at the dawn of a new [...]
