Deep learning is often viewed as the exclusive domain of math PhDs and big tech companies. But as this hands-on guide demonstrates, programmers comfortable with Python can achieve impressive results in deep learning with little math background, small amounts of data, and minimal code. How? With fastai, the first library to provide a consistent interface to the most frequently used deep learning applications.

Authors Jeremy Howard and Sylvain Gugger, the creators of fastai, show you how to train a model on a wide range of tasks using fastai and PyTorch. You’ll also dive progressively further into deep learning theory to gain a complete understanding of the algorithms behind the scenes.

  • Train models in computer vision, natural language processing, tabular data, and collaborative filtering
  • Learn the latest deep learning techniques that matter most in practice
  • Improve accuracy, speed, and reliability by understanding how deep learning models work
  • Discover how to turn your models into web applications
  • Implement deep learning algorithms from scratch
  • Consider the ethical implications of your work
  • Gain insight from the foreword by PyTorch cofounder, Soumith Chintala.
The author Jeremy Howard has the following credentials.

  • Prominent person behind Perl programming language: Perl is a family of two high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming languages. "Perl" refers to Perl 5, but from 2000 to 2019 it also referred to its redesigned "sister language", Perl 6, before the latter's name was officially changed to Raku in October 2019.

  • Prominent person behind Cyrus IMAP server: The Cyrus IMAP server is electronic mail server software developed by Carnegie Mellon University. It differs from other Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) server implementations in that it is generally intended to be run on sealed servers, where normal users cannot log in.
