Case study 3 – using tensorflow

I would like to finish off our time together by looking at a somewhat more modern module that was only recently introduced by Google's machine learning division called tensorflow.

Tensorflow is an open-source machine learning module that is used primarily for its simplified deep learning and neural network abilities. I would like to take some time to introduce the module and solve a few quick problems using tensorflow. The syntax for tensorflow (like PyBrain in Chapter 12, Beyond the Essentials) is a bit different than our normal scikit-learn syntax so I will be going over it step by step. Let's start with some imports:

from sklearn import datasets, metrics import tensorflow as tf import numpy as np from sklearn.cross_validation ...
