TensorFlow is an open-source software Python-based library developed by Google. It has high popularity in machine learning and deep learning area due to its simplicity, flexibility, and compatibility. In this chapter, we introduce the basic syntax of the TensorFlow and its main operations required to construct an artificial neural network. We briefly introduce the codes for building a recurrent neural network and convolutional neural network for example of MNIST based handwritten digits classification problem.
