To create a basic neural network in TensorFlow, you will need to follow the following steps:

  1. Import the necessary libraries:
import tensorflow as tf

  1. Define the architecture of your neural network:
model = tf.keras.models.Sequential([
    tf.keras.layers.Dense(units=64, activation='relu', input_shape=(input_size,)),
    tf.keras.layers.Dense(units=64, activation='relu'),
    tf.keras.layers.Dense(units=output_size, activation='softmax')

Here, you define your model using the Sequential class from tf.keras.models. This allows you to stack multiple layers on top of each other. In this example, we have used three dense layers. The first two layers have a 'relu' activation function, while the last layer has a 'softmax' activation function.

  1. Compile the model:
model.compile(optimizer='adam', loss='categorical_crossentropy', metrics=['accuracy'])

To compile the model, you need to specify the optimizer, loss function, and metrics you want to use. In this case, we are using 'adam' optimizer, 'categorical_crossentropy' loss, and 'accuracy' metric.

  1. Train the model:
1, train_labels, epochs=num_epochs, batch_size=batch_size)

To train the model, you need to provide the training dataset (train_data) and the corresponding labels (train_labels). Specify the number of epochs and the batch size for training.

  1. Evaluate the model:
test_loss, test_acc = model.evaluate(test_data, test_labels)
print('Test Loss:', test_loss)
print('Test Accuracy:', test_acc)

Use the evaluate method to evaluate the trained model on the test dataset (test_data) and the corresponding labels (test_labels).

  1. Make predictions:
predictions = model.predict(test_data)

You can use the predict method to make predictions using the trained model for new/unseen data (test_data).

Note: Make sure to replace input_size, output_size, train_data, train_labels, num_epochs, batch_size, test_data, and test_labels with your actual data and parameters.

These steps will allow you to create a basic neural network using TensorFlow. Feel free to modify the architecture, optimizer, loss function, and other parameters according to your specific needs and problem statement.
