Big Data and Business Intelligence

Deep Learning is making waves at the highest levels of the tech industry. But one of the biggest challenges for rolling out deep learning in smaller organisations is getting it to deploy on your company’s IT infrastructure. Hands-On Serverless Deep Learning with TensorFlow and AWS Lambda shows you how to change the rules of the game with the power of serverless architecture. Instead of thinking about cluster management, scalability, and query processing, going serverless allows you to focus specifically on training the model. By the end of the book, you will have implemented your own project that demonstrates how to use AWS Lambda effectively so as to serve your TensorFlow models in the best possible way.

Need to improve the performance of your machine learning methods? Ensemble machine learning combines two or more similar or dissimilar machine learning algorithms to deliver superior intellectual powers. New release Ensemble Machine Learning Cookbook helps you to implement popular machine learning algorithms to cover different paradigms of ensemble machine learning such as boosting, bagging, and stacking.
