Configuring a Deep Learning Environment

Before we finish this lesson, we want you to interact with a real neural network. We will start by covering the main software components used throughout this book and make sure that they are properly installed. We will then explore a pre-trained neural network and explore a few of the components and operations discussed earlier in the What are Neural Networks? section.

Software Components for Deep Learning

We'll use the following software components for deep learning:

Python 3

We will be using Python 3 in this book. Python is a general-purpose programming language which is very popular with the scientific community—hence its adoption in deep learning. Python 2 is not supported in this book but can be used to ...
