Ultimate Step by Step Guide to Deep Learning Using Python by Daneyal Anis is the perfect book for those looking to take the leap into a career of artificial intelligence, data mining, and deep machine learning. With so many careers impacted by Covid-19, switching careers into something more stable can be a good choice. This book lays out the field of data mining in easy-to-understand terms. Even if you are unfamiliar with artificial intelligence, Anis helps you get a solid understanding of the concepts. This is a good introduction for those who may be curious about the field, have an interest but don't know where to start, or are ready to jump in with both feet. When you start reading the book, the text may seem like a foreign language, but as you keep reading, the terms, concepts, and techniques become clearer. You will learn about regularization value, hyperparameters, data cleaning, and much more. From the beginning, Anis defines each idea, like artificial intelligence, which is basically a computer/machine that learns to think and interpret based on the information it is fed by humans. The author likens it to a child learning as he/she grows older. Did you know there is good data and bad data? What exactly is a neural network layer? How do algorithms work? And how does a computer read or understand the concept of colors? Anis explains it all.
If you've ever learned a new skill, from fishing, working on computers, or using a sewing machine, then you know that at first, the task can be daunting, but if you have a good teacher, everything makes sense. This book is that teacher. Python is a programming language that you can learn and the bonus material found in the book, like how to use Cloud Technologies, is even more impressive. If you're looking for a new career in computer technology, data mining, or modeling, and are looking to become financially successful, Data Science is the next big area to get into. The title alone can sound intimidating, but this author has a way of simplifying it so that you can grasp whether you want to pursue this as your next-level career choice. His use of images, graphs, charts, and examples is impressive, which helps the reader understand the material. The glossary at the end is extremely useful as well. It may help to read it first, and then again at the end. Ultimate Step by Step Guide to Deep Learning Using Python by Daneyal Anis is the premier primer for those brave enough to make a big career change.
