I understand pyhton has been de facto standard for all machine learning algorithms.
Does your book cover general algorithm concepts or too much details about implementing that in Python language. Can I build a chatbot type of app after reading this book in Java as well ?

Hi Sourabh,

The concepts are covered in general terms.  Its is completely reasonable to assume you could recreate any of the examples in Java, but we do rely heavily on existing Python libraries that abstract a lot of the boilerplate processes away.  I'm sure there are parallel libraries for a good deal of the tools in Java though.  

The deep learning libraries such as Keras haven't made there way to Java yet, as far as I know, so those sections may be a little extra slow-going.  But we do endeavor to express the concepts in general terms there as well.
I didn't do it. You can't prove it. Nobody saw me. The sheep are lying! This tiny ad is my witness!
