How to create an AWS Lambda Layer

At re:Invent 2018 a few new amazing features for Lambda are announced. One of them was the Layers.Layers let you keep your deployment package small, which makes development easier. You can avoid errors that can occur when you install and package dependencies with your function code. For Node.js, Python, and Ruby functions, you can develop your … Continue reading How to create an AWS Lambda Layer

A Simsons Chatbot (Keras and SageMaker) – Part 1: Introduction

I was thinking of creating a series, instead of individual posts, for Deep Learning projects, for some time now and I concluded that they are more lightheaded and easy to follow, so here I am! In this series, we are going to create a chatbot using Keras and SageMaker. I will try to explain the … Continue reading A Simsons Chatbot (Keras and SageMaker) – Part 1: Introduction

Digit Recognizer (Kaggle), 0.991 Accuracy with Keras

Recently, I got addicted to Kaggle and I started playing with all kinds of competitions. My first one it was the default (way to go) on Deep Learning. None other than the classifying handwritten digits using the MNIST dataset. I managed to hit a good 99.1% accuracy in the validation round! I figured to share … Continue reading Digit Recognizer (Kaggle), 0.991 Accuracy with Keras

Review: Machine Learning with Python Cookbook

Recently, I purchased the book Machine Learning with Python Cookbook by Chris Albon (@chrisalbon). I finished it in one week, while I followed each piece of code on my computer. In this post, I will review this book and at the end, I will conclude with my proposition to buy or not to buy. Contents … Continue reading Review: Machine Learning with Python Cookbook

Convolutional NN with Keras and SageMaker

In today’s post, I am going to show you how you can use Amazon’s SageMaker to classify images from the CIFAR-10 dataset using Keras with MXNet backend. For this tutorial, you do not need the GPU version of Tensorflow. This tutorial is a continuation of my previous one, Convolutional NN with Keras Tensorflow on CIFAR-10 Dataset, … Continue reading Convolutional NN with Keras and SageMaker

Convolutional NN with Keras Tensorflow on CIFAR-10 Dataset, Image Classification

In today's post, I am going to show you how to create a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) to classify images from the dataset CIFAR-10. This tutorial is the backbone to the next one, Image Classification with Keras and SageMaker. This post mainly shows you how to prepare your custom dataset to be acceptable by Keras. … Continue reading Convolutional NN with Keras Tensorflow on CIFAR-10 Dataset, Image Classification
