Keras

KerasKeras is an open source neural network library written in Python. Keras was conceived to be an interface rather than a standalone machine-learning framework. It offers a higher-level, more intuitive set of abstractions that make it easy to develop deep learning models regardless of the computational backend used. It is capable of running on top of TensorFlow, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit or Theano.

Designed to enable fast experimentation with deep neural networks, it focuses on being user-friendly, modular, and extensible. It was developed as part of the research effort of project ONEIROS (Open-ended Neuro-Electronic Intelligent Robot Operating System), and its primary author and maintainer is François Chollet, a Google engineer.

Keras contains numerous implementations of commonly used neural network building blocks such as layers, objectives, activation functions, optimizers, and a host of tools to make working with image and text data easier.

Keras allows use of distributed training of deep learning models on clusters of Graphics Processing Units (GPU). Keras allows users to productize deep models on smartphones (iOS and Android), on the web, or on the Java Virtual Machine.

TensorFlow

TensorFlowTensorFlow was originally developed by the Google Brain Team within Google’s Machine Intelligence research organization for machine learning and deep neural networks research.

TensorFlow is a Python-friendly open source machine learning framework for numerical computation that makes acquiring data, training models, serving predictions, and refining future results easier. TensorFlow bundles together a slew of machine learning and deep learning(neural networking) models and algorithms.

TensorFlow computations are expressed as stateful dataflow graphs. The name TensorFlow derives from the operations that such neural networks perform on multidimensional data arrays. These arrays are referred to as “tensors”.

TensorFlow is cross-platform. It runs on nearly everything: GPUs and CPUs—including mobile and embedded platforms—and even tensor processing units (TPUs), which are specialized hardware to do tensor math on.

Keras is a popular high level interface to TensorFlow.

LAMP Stack

LAMP StackLAMP is an acronym for “Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python”.

LINUX Operating System

The reason they call it a stack is because each level derives off it’s base layer. Your Operating system, Linux, is the base layer. Then Apache, your web daemon sits on top of your OS. Then your database stores all the information served by your web daemon, and PHP (or any P* scripting language) is used to drive and display all the data, and allow for user interaction.


Linux

LinuxLinux is a family of free and open-source software operating systems built around the Linux kernel. The development of Linux is one of the most prominent examples of free and open-source software collaboration. The underlying source code may be used, modified and distributed—commercially or non-commercially—by anyone under the terms of its respective licenses, such as the GNU General Public License.

Typically, Linux is packaged in a form known as a Linux distribution (or distro for short) for both desktop and server use. The defining component of a Linux distribution is the Linux kernel. Distributions include the Linux kernel, supporting utilities and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project, and usually a large amount of application software to fulfil the distribution’s intended use.

Linux is the most widely used operating system due to its marketing leading position on servers, mobile devices, and ebmeded systems. It has over 60% market share of web servers. The Android operating system (which runs on the Linux kernel) is the most used operating system worldwide, with its market share reaching 81.7 percent in the last quarter of 2016.

Apache HTTP Server

Apache HTTP ServerThe Apache HTTP Server, typically called simply “Apache”, is a free and open-source cross-platform web server. Apache is the most widely used web server. As of March 2018, the Apache web server was estimated to serve 43% of all active websites and 37% of the top million websites.

The Apache web server supports virtual hosting. This allows one Apache installation to serve many different Web sites.

Apache uses compiled modules to extend the core functionality. These can range from authentication schemes, popular compression methods, to supporting server-side programming languages such as Perl, Python, Tcl and PHP.

Instead of implementing a single architecture, Apache provides a variety of MultiProcessing Modules (MPMs), which allow it to run in either a process-based mode, a hybrid (process and thread) mode, or an event-hybrid mode, in order to better match the demands of each particular infrastructure.

MySQL

MySQLMySQL is an open-source relational database management system (RDBMS). MySQL is a central component of the LAMP open-source web application software stack (and other “AMP” stacks). LAMP is an acronym for “Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python”.

MySQL performs extremely well for most uses. It has been tested to be a fast, stable and true multi-user, multi-threaded sql database server. There are numerous developer interfaces, and the documentation is very good. It has been tested to be a fast, stable and true multi-user, multi-threaded sql database server.

PHP

PHPPHP: Hypertext Preprocessor (or simply PHP) is a server-side scripting language designed for Web development, but also used as a general-purpose programming language.

PHP code may be embedded into HTML code, or it can be used in combination with various web template systems, web content management systems(like WordPress), and web frameworks. PHP code is usually processed by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module in the web server or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable. The web server combines the results of the interpreted and executed PHP code, which may be any type of data, including images, with the generated web page. PHP code may also be executed with a command-line interface (CLI) and can be used to implement standalone graphical applications.

WordPress

WordPress

WordPress powers 31% of the Internet.

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. WordPress is the most popular website management system. It is used by more than 60 million websites, including 30.6% of the top 10 million websites.

Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. It is most associated with blogging, but supports other types of web content including more traditional mailing lists and forums, media galleries, and online stores.

WordPress has to be installed on a web server, either part of an Internet hosting service like WordPress.com or a computer running the software package WordPress.org in order to serve as a network host in its own right. A local computer may be used for single-user testing and learning purposes.
