Commonly Asked TensorFlow Interview Questions for Fresher

Q1. What is TensorFlow?

TensorFlow is the machine learning library developed by Google’s brain team, it supports multiple abstraction levels, and we can choose the right level according to our need. We can build and train the models of machine learning with the help of keras, the high-level API. These types of API makes accessible to the TensorFlow and machine learning both. We don’t need to change the model definition in tensor flow, when we want flexibility and the eager execution which allows for the next iteration and intuitive debugging for large machine learning tasks and use the circulation strategy API for circulated training on the various hardware configuration.

Q2.   What do you understand by Tensors?

The Tensor is a vector or matrices of the n-dimension array that represents all type of data.  A graph can conduct all operations in the Tensor, or we can say that the edge of the node is known as Tensor. We need a feature vector as the initial input to implement a Tensor. The models are feed with the list of objects in the machine learning; those objects are called feature vectors.

We can understand the Tensors with the help of the diagram given below:

Some key features of Tensorflow are as follows:

  • Scalable
  • Open source.
  • Easily trainable on both CPU as well as GPU for circulated computing.
  • It has auto differentiate capabilities.
  • It provides threads, asynchronous computation, and queues
  • Multi-platform Programming interface.
  • TensorFlow has platform flexibility.
  • Categorical vocabulary column: It is the most crucial feature of TensorFlow, we cannot input String directly to the model, we have to convert the String into numeric or categorical value. So, the Categorical vocabulary column supports String as one vector which is a numeric value.

The ROC curve is used in regards to the rate and reflects something significant, and these rates are classified as accurate positive and false positive rates. This curve represents all the information in the form of a graph. It can be mainly used as a  proxy for the trade-off operations, which are related to different algorithms.

Q23. How can you Handle that situation which is indicating an unbalanced dataset?

This type of unbalanced datasets situation occurs due to the majority of data that is kept in one class only.  We should resampling the dataset that is the best solution for this, and users also need to confirm that the data set is not damaged.

Q24. Have you any idea about the working of ROC curve?

There are three main tasks of ROC and AUC in TensorFlow, which are the following:

  1. We have to create ROC plots for the binary classifiers, which is applied for the cross-validation.

The type I error is the false positive value, that type of error shows that something happens, but actually, it does not.

Type II Error:

The type II error represents false negative value, this type of error is used to show the machine that there is nothing wrong, but actually, something exists, which is not good.
