Tensorflow | Introduction Image

What is Tensorflow?

TensorFlow is a helpful open-source library tool for machine learning. Machine learning by definition, is a subfield of AI, which enables a computer to learn to perform tasks.Footnote 1

Created by the Google Brain team to speed up the learning process for complex tasks, Tensorflow is used when creating artificial brain-like networks, called neural networks. The end goal is for it to gather and use data for training purposes easier.Footnote 2

By using the universal code Python, prompt commands are sent to its inbuilt system calculator, and in turn, the calculator (which runs on super speed C++ code) does the heavy math equations for the user in minimal time.

Tensorflow course curriculum

An online course in TensorFlow can cover a range of topics related to the Google machine learning library. An online course may cover:

  • Introduction to machine learning and TensorFlow: Understand what machine learning is, and how TensorFlow fits into this field.

  • TensorFlow basics: Learn how to install and set up a development environment.

  • Deep learning and neural networks: Learn how to build and train deep neural networks.

  • Data preparation: Discover techniques to preprocess and manipulate data to make it suitable for training models.

  • Model building: Construct machine learning models using TensorFlow, covering topics like model architecture, layers, and optimization techniques.

  • Model training: Understand how to define loss functions, set up training loops, and monitor model performance.

These courses are designed to equip learners at different levels with the required skills to work with TensorFlow and build machine learning models. edX offers a variety of educational opportunities for learners interested in studying machine learning, data analysis, and more. You can also choose from many different learning formats. For example, a boot camp can provide flexible hands-on learning for those who want to upskill quickly, while executive education programs are designed for busy professionals. Additionally, you can pursue a more comprehensive curriculum in a bachelor’s degree program or, for more advanced learners, a master’s degree program. Find the right learning path for you.
