A variety of plots and interaction methods are used in each analysis, often starting with brushing linked low-dimensional views and working up to manual manipulation of tours of several variables. The book is augmented by a wealth of online material.
Deep learning is one of today´s hottest fields. This approach to machine learning is achieving breakthrough results in some of today´s highest profile applications, in organizations ranging from Google to Tesla, Facebook to Apple. Thousands of technical professionals and students want to start leveraging its power, but previous books on deep learning have often been non-intuitive, inaccessible, and dry. In Deep Learning Illustrated, three world-class instructors and practitioners present a uniquely visual, intuitive, and accessible high-level introduction to the techniques and applications of deep learning. Packed with vibrant, full-color illustrations, it abstracts away much of the complexity of building deep learning models, making the field more fun to learn and accessible to a far wider audience. Part I´s high-level overview explains what Deep Learning is, why it has become so ubiquitous, and how it relates to concepts and terminology such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Artificial Neural Networks, and Reinforcement Learning. These opening chapters are replete with vivid illustrations, easy-to-grasp analogies, and character-focused narratives. Building on this foundation, the authors then offer a practical reference and tutorial for applying a wide spectrum of proven deep learning techniques. Essential theory is covered with as little mathematics as possible and is illuminated with hands-on Python code. Theory is supported with practical ´´run-throughs´´ available in accompanying Jupyter notebooks, delivering a pragmatic understanding of all major deep learning approaches and their applications: machine vision, natural language processing, image generation, and videogaming. To help readers accomplish more in less time, the authors feature several of today´s most widely used and innovative deep learning libraries, including TensorFlow and its high-level API, Keras; PyTorch; and the recently released, high-level Coach, a TensorFlow API that abstracts away the complexity typically associated with building Deep Reinforcement Learning algorithms. * Ideal for software developers, data scientists, and analysts at all levels of experience * Teaches through simple visuals, accessible Python code examples, character-driven narratives, and intuitive analogies * Covers today´s leading applications, including machine vision, natural language processing, image generation, and videogames * Introduces four powerful Deep Learning libraries: TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch, and Coach * Carefully designed to minimize mathematical formulae and avoid unnecessary complexity The first full-color, illustrated, hands-on guide to the fundamentals of modern, deep-learning AI: simply the most intuitive, practical way to get started * Ideal for software developers, data scientists, and analysts at all levels of experience * Teaches through simple visuals, accessible Python code examples, character-driven narratives, and intuitive analogies * Covers today´s leading applications, including machine vision, natural language processing, image generation, and videogames * Introduces four powerful Deep Learning libraries: TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch, and Coach * Carefully designed to minimize mathematical formulae and avoid unnecessary complexity

In The Functional Art, instructor Alberto Cairo explains how information graphics and visualizations are cognitive tools that extend our perception and how we can use them to see beyond lists of numbers, variables, and phenomena to identify patterns and trends that would be invisible otherwise. The book also includes a DVD-ROM containing 90+ minutes of video tutorials that expand on the concepts explained in the book as well as exercises that viewers can use to put their newly found skills to the test. Product Description Unlike any time before in our lives, we have access to vast amounts of free information. With the right tools, we can start to make sense of all this data to see patterns and trends that would otherwise be invisible to us. By transforming numbers into graphical shapes, we allow readers to understand the stories those numbers hide. In this practical introduction to understanding and using information graphics, you´ll learn how to use data visualizations as tools to see beyond lists of numbers and variables and achieve new insights into the complex world around us. Regardless of the kind of data you´re working with-business, science, politics, sports, or even your own personal finances-this book will show you how to use statistical charts, maps, and explanation diagrams to spot the stories in the data and learn new things from it. You´ll also get to peek into the creative process of some of the world´s most talented designers and visual journalists, including Condé Nast Traveler´s John Grimwade , National Geographic Magazine´s Fernando Baptista, The New York Times´ Steve Duenes, The Washington Post´s Hannah Fairfield, Hans Rosling of the Gapminder Foundation, Stanford´s Geoff McGhee, and European superstars Moritz Stefaner, Jan Willem Tulp, Stefanie Posavec, and Gregor Aisch. The book also includes a DVD-ROM containing over 90 minutes of video lessons that expand on core concepts explained within the book and includes even more inspirational information graphics from the world´s leading designers. The first book to offer a broad, hands-on introduction to information graphics and visualization, The Functional Art reveals: . Why data visualization should be thought of as ´´functional art´´ rather than fine art .
