Live Coding to predict handwritten digits using TensorFlow

Live Coding to predict handwritten digits using TensorFlow


Neural networks are used as a method of deep learning, one of the many subfields of artificial intelligence. They were first proposed around 70 years ago as an attempt at simulating the way the human brain works, though in a much more simplified form. Individual ‘neurons’ are connected in layers, with weights assigned to determine how the neuron responds when signals are propagated through the network. Previously, neural networks were limited in the number of neurons they were able to simulate, and therefore the complexity of learning they could achieve. But in recent years, due to advancements in hardware development, we have been able to build very deep networks, and train them on enormous datasets to achieve breakthroughs in machine intelligence.

In this live coding session, you will implement a small subsection of object recognition—digit recognition. Using TensorFlow, an open-source Python library developed by the Google Brain labs for deep learning research, you will take hand-drawn images of the numbers 0-9 and build and train a neural network to recognize and predict the correct label for the digit displayed.

While you won’t need prior experience in practical deep learning or TensorFlow to follow along with this tutorial, we’ll assume some familiarity with machine learning terms and concepts such as training and testing, features and labels, optimization, and evaluation.
