Although the book is currently in pre-order status, it is highly anticipated by readers and has long been ranked the first on Amazon’s Computer Science book list.

Book content

The draft of the book has published 22 chapters (including introduction and conclusion). The content starts with the most well known AI “Hello Word problem”, the MNIST image classification, then NLP, recurrent neural network, convolutional neural network, and interpretability.

This course is not for beginner and the prerequisites are knowledge of Python and PyTorch.

To run the code in Jupyter Notebook, you need to install:

fastai v2、Graphviz、ipywidgets、matplotlib、nbdev、pandas、scikit-learn、Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services Image Search

They can all be installed directly via PyPI.

This fastbook is not only a textbook, but also an AI community resource. In the final message, the author hopes that everyone who has completed this book will exchange successful experiences with everyone.
