Educational materials for Frontend Masters course "A Practical Guide to Deep Learning with TensorFlow 2.0 and Keras"


Prerequisite: Python

To use Jupyter Notebooks on your computer - please follow the installation instructions. Note: Anaconda installation is recommended if you are not familiar with other Python package management systems.

Guided Steps

  • Install dependencies

    pip install -r requirements.txt
  • Run jupyter notebook

    jupyter notebook
