- Discover practical recipes for distributed deep learning with Apache Spark
- Learn to use libraries such as Keras and TensorFlow
- Solve problems in order to train your deep learning models on Apache Spark
With deep learning gaining rapid mainstream adoption in modern-day industries, organizations are looking for ways to unite popular big data tools with highly efficient deep learning libraries. As a result, this will help deep learning models train with higher efficiency and speed.
With the help of the Apache Spark Deep Learning Cookbook, you’ll work through specific recipes to generate outcomes for deep learning algorithms, without getting bogged down in theory. From setting up Apache Spark for deep learning to implementing types of neural net, this book tackles both common and not so common problems to perform deep learning on a distributed environment. In addition to this, you’ll get access to deep learning code within Spark that can be reused to answer similar problems or tweaked to answer slightly different problems. You will also learn how to stream and cluster your data with Spark. Once you have got to grips with the basics, you’ll explore how to implement and deploy deep learning models, such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) and Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) in Spark, using popular libraries such as TensorFlow and Keras.
Who this book is for
If you’re looking for a practical and highly useful resource for implementing efficiently distributed deep learning models with Apache Spark, then the Apache Spark Deep Learning Cookbook is for you. Knowledge of the core machine learning concepts and a basic understanding of the Apache Spark framework is required to get the best out of this book. Additionally, some programming knowledge in Python is a plus.

This book is a great introduction to Kotlin in the context of Android development. I really enjoyed the hands-on approach, and the author has done an amazing job of showcasing the advantages of Kotlin over Java 7. The example application includes most of the components that a real-world Android app would usually have: UI, REST, database, SharedPreferences, unit and instrumentation tests, and working with all of those can be greatly improved with Kotlin, as was demonstrated by this book. Would highly recommend it to anybody interested in Android development.
