Chapter 3. Getting started with neural networks

This chapter covers

  • Core components of neural networks
  • An introduction to Keras
  • Setting up a deep-learning workstation
  • Using neural networks to solve basic classification and regression problems

This chapter is designed to get you started with using neural networks to solve real problems. You’ll consolidate the knowledge you gained from our first practical example in chapter 2, and you’ll apply what you’ve learned to three new problems covering the three most common use cases of neural networks: binary classification, multiclass classification, and scalar regression.

In this chapter, we’ll take a closer look at the core components of neural networks that we introduced in chapter 2: layers, networks, ...
