Implementing AI
Location: Westminster Suite Level: Intermediate
Jonathan Hung (LinkedIn), Keqiu Hu (LinkedIn), Anthony Hsu (LinkedIn)
Jonathan Hung, Keqiu Hu, and Anthony Hsu offer an overview of TensorFlow on YARN (TonY), a framework to natively run TensorFlow on Hadoop. TonY enables running TensorFlow distributed training as a new type of Hadoop application. Its native Hadoop connector, together with other features, aims to run TensorFlow jobs as reliably and flexibly as other first-class objects on Hadoop. Read more.

Location: Westminster Suite Level: Intermediate
Anmol Jagetia (Media.net)
Machine learning and object recognition have matured to the point that exciting applications are now possible. Anmol Jagetia demonstrates how to create a Pokédex that uses a camera phone to recognize the Pokémon it's looking at in real time. You'll see how to gather data, prepare your dataset, tune models, and deploy it to a mobile device, using the same tech that is used in self-driving cars. Read more.
