The Deep Learning Masterclass: Make a Keras Image Classifier

Welcome to this epic masterclass on Keras (and so much more) with our #1 data scientist and app developer Nimish Narang, creator of over 20 Mammoth Interactive courses and webinars.

This course was funded by a wildly successful Kickstarter

Anyone can take this course. No experience is required. If you already have experience using PyCharm and running Python files and programs on the interface, you can simply skip ahead to whatever section best suits your needs. Or, you can follow the progression of this meticulously curated course especially designed to take any absolute beginner off the street and make them a data modeler.

This course is divided into days, but of course you can learn at your own pace. In Day 2 we teach you all the fundamentals of the Python programming language. If you already have experience coding in this popular language, brushing up on the fundamentals and fixing bad coding habits is a great exercise. If you are a beginner this section ensures you don’t get lost with the rest of the crowd.

At Day 3 we dive into machine learning and neural networks.

You also get an introduction to convolutions. These are hot topics that are in high demand in the market. If you can use this new technology to your advantage you are pretty much guaranteed a job! Everyone is desperate for employees with these skills.

In Day 4 we go headfirst into Keras and understanding the API and Syntax.

Hyperloop Tunnels from SpaceX, Tesla, and Elon Musk

Picture this: You drop your bag on the counter of your Los Angeles apartment. It’s a regular Tuesday, but you feel like going out for dinner in New York. Sound impossible? Not in the world of Hyperloop One.
 
You leave your apartment and wander down the street. Not far away on a car-park sized platform sits an electric pod-like vehicle. This is a bus stop like no other.
 

How the Hyperloop Works

 
You enter the vehicle alongside a few neighbors. There’s no schedule. It shoots below the street to a subterranean tunnel.
 
The pod? Pressurized. The tunnel? Depressurized. It’s rush hour, so the pod speeds up to a max of approximately 600 miles per hour.
 
Your pod isn’t alone. Hundreds of others whiz by like fish swimming underwater under a moon’s pale glow.
 
You’re travelling on the Hyperloop.
 
21 minutes later you’re in New York City. Let the shopping begin!
 

What is the Hyperloop?

 
I bet you thought breezing across the USA in such short a time was science fiction. Think again.
 
It’s exactly what Elon Musk has in mind.
 

Meet The Boring Company

 
Musk’s Company originated with a drive to reduce city congestion. CEO Musk’s initial idea was to transport cars through the tunnels on electric sleds.
 
As of 2018, that focus has shifted. Elon Musk Tweeted to announce that The Boring Company’s focus would shift to mass transportation. This is a shift from its interest in individual vehicle usage.
 
Musk didn’t rule out tunnels ever supporting cars. But Musk said his
 
Musk described the system as “a 150 mph (241 km/h), underground, autonomous, electric bus that automatically switches between tunnels and lifts.”
 

The Hyperloop’s Origin

 
Making use of underutilized space underground isn’t a new idea. In 1972 physicist R.M. Salter wrote a paper describing a scarily similar concept.
 
Salter worked for the RAND Corporation, an American nonprofit created to improve policy with research.
 
He named his innovation The Very High Speed Transit System. He proposed electromagnetic levitation propelling cars travelling via vacuum tunnels.
 
The Very High Speed Transit System doesn’t conjure the same excitement as Hyperloop. Still, more than 4 decades ago Salter concluded that such a system was no far-out dream. The system would need no new scientific breakthroughs. All that needed addressing were the physical construction and political issues.
 
That’s precisely where Elon Musk and the Boring Company are at today.
 

The Boring Company’s Transportation Tunnels

 
Reportedly, work has already been completed on a 305-feet (100 meter) tunnel. The tunnel’s entrance is at Musk’s SpaceX HQ in Hawthorne, California. SpaceX has the green light to increase this tunnel by 2 miles toward LAX.
 
SpaceX plans to build a grid of low-cost, fast-to-dig tunnels. The city “Loop” will consist of pressurized tunnels with pods on electric skates traveling over 125 mph. The “Hyperloop” will be for long-distance travel in straight lines, such as NYC to DC. The Hyperloop will use pressurized pods in a depressurized tunnel to permit speeds of over 600 mph .
 
Whether the project comes to fruition comes back to cost. Radical improvements can come to tunneling technology. Still, building infrastructure size will be expensive. Really expensive. That means a successful Hyperloop will need government subsidy, and thus political will.
 

Benefits of the Hyperloop

 
Who wouldn’t want to be whisked from A to B at 600 mph in a vacuum tube? 29-minutes between the US capital of Washington, D.C. and New York City!
 
Experts from NASA, the US Department of Transport, and Hamburg University theorized the possibilities. The technology could be cheaper and greener in comparison to short-haul flights. The Hyperloop could be more environmentally friendly than long truck journeys, too.
 

Other Hyperloops

 
Musk’s company isn’t the only one thinking of Hyperloops.
 
In 2017, Richard Branson’s company partly funded Virgin Hyperloop. Virgin Hyperloop successfully tested full-scale pods with speeds reaching 190 miles per hour.
 
Hyperloops are a global phenomenon. Hyperloop lines are proposed to link Abu Dhabi and Dubai, two of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates. More projects are proposed for European capitals Bratislava, Vienna, and Budapest, and several cities in Mexico.
 

The Future of Transportation

 
What made The Boring Company’s system different from a conventional subway? Some argue it was their transporting cars via electric sleds. With The Boring Company’s new concept of public transport, some envisioned a fancy subway train.
 
Unscheduled high-speed transport promises more than simply an enhanced subway. It promises with smaller entrances and exits taking up surface area.
 
The Hyperloop can reinvent transport and forever change the obstacles of time. Tunnels can provide greener travel alternatives. Soon we all might rethink our perception of distance.

Our thanks to everyone who shares their story with us at Mammoth Interactive! We always get inspired when we hear your experience.

“This course helped me a lot for programming, convinced me to do programming and made me understand programming with some fun in it! Overall I don’t need to go back and watch any of the courses vids since its explained in detail! Love it!!!”

Amar on Kids Coding -Introduction to HTML, CSS and JavaScript

“Before this course I only knew basic coding. During this course, mostly due to the great explanations, I learned so much about coding. Looking forward to taking more courses of Mammoth after I make this game shine for my 2 daughters who loved to play every bit of the game during the course.”

Roel on Build The Legend of Zenda Game in Unity® and Blender (CC)

“I teach university students game development, mainly using the Unreal Engine 4, the six different games give a good insight into using C++ to create functionality with Unreal Engine 4. This area of development is a minefield with basic issues like intellisense not integrating with UE4 C++ projects and the vastness and complexity of UE4, these tutorials have helped me create course material, which in turn has helped all levels of students; to get the most from UE4.”

Jason on Learn how to make 6 games in the Unreal Engine

“Moves fast but really does teach good character design. I learned more in a half hour than I have in months on my own.”

Kevin on Create Low Poly Game Characters in Blender3D

“This course has made clear to me many obscure concepts about JS. I’ve tried to learn it for years. This makes it easy.”

Igor on Beginner’s ES6 Programming. Code for the Web in JavaScript.

“It was very easy to understand. I wasn’t sure if I should be intimidated by coding or if I should see it as something that is easy, but this course makes it understandable and fun. Thanks.”

Rotating Objects Around a Point in Unity

Question answered by student Jay from Mammoth Interactive’s Legend of Zenda game development course

When I follow the steps to make the sword it still rotates around the center of the object and not near the handle.

You didn’t do anything wrong, the solution is quite simple. Check your settings. Next to the modifiers of the objects, you’ll find a button that switches between Pivot and Center:

If you have “Center” active, your sword will rotate around the center. When you click on “Center”, you’ll change to “Pivot” and the sword in the editor finally behaves as you want it.
