Deep Learning Cookbook

Deep Learning Cookbook: Practical Recipes to Get Started Quickly by Douwe Osinga
Deep learning doesn’t have to be intimidating. Until recently, this machine-learning method required years of study, but with frameworks such as Keras and Tensorflow, software engineers without a background in machine learning can quickly enter the field. With the recipes in this cookbook, you’ll learn how to solve deep-learning problems for classifying and generating text, images, and music.
Each chapter consists of several recipes needed to complete a single project, such as training a music recommending system. Author Douwe Osinga also provides a chapter with half a dozen techniques to help you if you’re stuck. Examples are written in Python with code available on GitHub as a set of Python notebooks.
You’ll learn how to:
* Create applications that will serve real users
* Use word embeddings to calculate text similarity
* Build a movie recommender system based on Wikipedia links
* Learn how AIs see the world by visualizing their internal state
* Build a model to suggest emojis for pieces of text
* Reuse pretrained networks to build an inverse image search service
* Compare how GANs, autoencoders and LSTMs generate icons
* Detect music styles and index song collections

Deep Green Resistance

For years, Derrick Jensen has asked his audiences, “Do you think this culture will undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of life?” No one ever says yes.
*Deep Green Resistance* starts where the environmental movement leaves off: industrial civilization is incompatible with life. Technology can’t fix it, and shopping – no matter how green – won’t stop it. To save this planet, we need a serious resistance movement that can bring down the industrial economy. *Deep Green Resistance* evaluates strategic options for resistance, from nonviolence to guerrilla warfare, and the conditions required for those options to be successful. It provides an exploration of organizational structures, recruitment, security, and target selection for both aboveground and underground action. *Deep Green Resistance* also discusses a culture of resistance and the crucial support role that it can play.
*Deep Green Resistance* is a plan of action for anyone determined to fight for this planet – and win.

The Deeds of the Disturber

SUMMARY: Can fear kill? There are those who believe so–but Amelia Peabody is skeptical. A respected Egyptologist and amateur sleuth, Amelia has foiled felonious schemes from Victoria’s England to the Middle East. And she doubts that it was a Nineteenth-Dynasty mummy’s curse that caused the death of a night watchman in the British Museum. The corpse was found sprawled in the mummy’s shadow, a look of terror frozen on the guard’s face. What–or who–killed the unfortunate man is a mystery that seems too intriguingly delicious for Amelia to pass up, especially now that she, her dashing archaeologist husband, Emerson, and their precocious son, Ramses, are back on Britain’s shores. But a contemporary curse can be as lethal as one centuries old–and the foggy London thoroughfares can be as treacherous as the narrow, twisting alleyways of Cairo after dark–when a perpetrator of evil deeds sets his murderous sights on his relentless pursuer…Amelia Peabody!
