Written in Python, Keras is a high-level neural networks API that can be run on top of TensorFlow. This API was designed to provide machine learning enthusiasts with a tool that enables easy and fast prototyping, supports both convolutional and recurrent neural networks (and a combination of the two), while running on a CPU or GPU.

At the recent webinar, the attendees learned how to build an image classifier from scratch using Keras on top of TensorFlow, how containerization can help, how to fight data overfitting and reach 90% of accuracy, etc.
