Use Java and Deeplearning4j to build robust, scalable, and highly accurate AI models from scratch
Install and configure Deeplearning4j to implement deep learning models from scratch
Explore recipes for developing, training, and fine-tuning your neural network models in Java
Model neural networks using datasets containing images, text, and time-series data
Java is one of the most widely used programming languages in the world. With this book, you will see how to perform deep learning using Deeplearning4j (DL4J) – the most popular Java library for training neural networks efficiently.
This book starts by showing you how to install and configure Java and DL4J on your system. You will then gain insights into deep learning basics and use your knowledge to create a deep neural network for binary classification from scratch. As you progress, you will discover how to build a convolutional neural network (CNN) in DL4J, and understand how to construct numeric vectors from text. This deep learning book will also guide you through performing anomaly detection on unsupervised data and help you set up neural networks in distributed systems effectively. In addition to this, you will learn how to import models from Keras and change the configuration in a pre-trained DL4J model. Finally, you will explore benchmarking in DL4J and optimize neural networks for optimal results.
By the end of this book, you will have a clear understanding of how you can use DL4J to build robust deep learning applications in Java.
