Machine Learning with Core ML
Machine Learning with Core ML

Core ML is a popular framework by Apple, with APIs designed to support various machine learning tasks. It allows you to train your machine learning models and then integrate them into your iOS apps. Machine Learning with Core ML is a fun and practical guide that not only demystifies Core ML but also sheds light on machine learning. In this book, you'll walk through realistic and interesting examples of machine learning in the context of mobile platforms (specifically iOS). You'll learn to implement Core ML for visual-based applications using the principles of transfer learning and neural networks. Having got to grips with the basics, you'll discover a series of seven examples, each providing a new use-case that uncovers how machine learning can be applied along with the related concepts. By the end of the book, you will have the skills required to put machine learning to work in their own applications, using the Core ML APIs. ...

Xamarin in Action
Xamarin in Action

Rewriting the same app for iOS and Android is tedious, error-prone, and expensive. Microsoft's Xamarin drastically reduces dev time by reusing most application code - typically 70% or more. The core of your iOS and Android app is shared; you write platform-specific code only for the UI layer. And because Xamarin uses C#, your apps benefit from everything this modern language and the .NET ecosystem have to offer. Xamarin in Action teaches you to build cross-platform mobile apps using Xamarin and C#. You'll explore all the layers of a Xamarin app, from design to deployment. Xamarin expert Jim Bennett teaches you design practices that maximize code reuse and isolate device-specific code, making it a snap to incorporate the unique features of each OS. ...
