Develop industrial solutions based on deep learning models with Apache Spark
Deep learning has solved tons of interesting real-world problems in recent years. Apache Spark has emerged as the most important and promising machine learning tool and currently a stronger challenger of the Hadoop ecosystem. In this course, you’ll learn about the major branches of AI and get familiar with several core models of Deep Learning in its natural way.
You’ll begin with building deep learning networks to deal with speech data and explore tricks to solve NLP problems and classify video frames using RNN and LSTMs. You’ll also learn to implement the anomaly detection model that leverages reinforcement learning techniques to improve cyber security.
Moving on, you’ll explore some more advanced topics by performing prediction classification on image data using the GAN encoder and decoder. Then you’ll configure Spark to use multiple workers and CPUs to distribute your Neural Network training. Finally, you’ll track progress, solve the most common problems in your neural network, and debug your models that run within the distributed Spark engine.
