Google JAX Essentials

Quick practical learning of blazing-fast library for machine learning and deep learning projects

About the Book

"Google JAX Essentials" is a comprehensive guide designed for machine learning and deep learning professionals aiming to leverage the power and capabilities of Google's JAX library in their projects. Over the course of eight chapters, this book takes the reader from understanding the challenges of deep learning and numerical computations in the existing frameworks to the essentials of Google JAX, its functionalities, and how to leverage it in real-world machine learning and deep learning projects.

The book starts by emphasizing the importance of numerical computing in ML and DL, demonstrating the limitations of traditional libraries like NumPy, and introducing the solution offered by JAX. It then guides the reader through the installation of JAX on different computing environments like CPUs, GPUs, and TPUs, and its integration into existing ML and DL projects. Moving further, the book details the advanced numerical operations and unique features of JAX, including JIT compilation, automatic differentiation, batched operations, and custom gradients. It illustrates how these features can be employed to write code that is both simpler and faster.

The book also delves into parallel computation, the effective use of the vmap function, and the use of pmap for distributed computing. Lastly, the reader is walked through the practical application of JAX in training different deep learning models, including RNNs, CNNs, and Bayesian models, with an additional focus on performance-tuning strategies for JAX applications.
