This book illustrates a method of using the traditional deep learning-based multi-class classification techniques to hide messages in a matrix of seemingly random numbers. This book is definitely a niche topic and is more of a fun project than something you would want to do for work. The premise is that you can represent characters as a sequence of random numbers you uniquely generate, and with the help of a neural network, a message can be embedded in a matrix of numbers. In the book, I also describe how this method can be used to embed messages in images.

I wrote this book for people who primarily use other statistical software like SPSS or SAS, and want to get started in deep learning with Keras. With this idea in mind, a sizable chuck of the book is giving people the prerequisite information they need to start using Keras. I start from the very beginning of assigning variables and end with multi-class classification with deep learning models.
