Look inside
Create your own generative AI models for text, images, music, and more!

Generative AI tools like ChatGPT, Bard, and DALL-E have transformed the way we work. Learn Generative AI with PyTorch takes you on an incredible hands-on journey through creating and training AI models using Python, the free PyTorch framework and the hardware you already have in your office. Along the way, you’ll master the fundamentals of General Adversarial Networks (GANs), Transformers, Large Language Models (LLMs), variational autoencoders, diffusion models, LangChain, and more!

In Learn Generative AI with PyTorch you’ll build these amazing models:

  • A simple English-to-French translator
  • A text-generating model as powerful as GPT-2
  • A diffusion model that produces realistic flower images
  • Music generators using GANs and Transformers
  • An image style transfer model
  • A zero-shot know-it-all agent

All you need is Python and the fundamentals of machine learning to get started. You’ll learn the rest as you go!

about the book

Learn Generative AI with PyTorch teaches the underlying mechanics of generative AI by building working AI models from scratch. Every model you’ll create is fun and fascinating, in projects that include generating color images of anime faces, changing the hair color in a photograph, training a model to write like Hemingway, and generating music in the style of Mozart.

Throughout, you’ll use the intuitive PyTorch framework that’s instantly familiar to anyone who’s worked with Python data tools. You’ll begin by creating simple content like shapes, numbers, and images using Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). Then, each chapter introduces a new project as you work towards building your own LLMs.
