The machine learning revolution is powered by open source! The developers of TensorFlow believe machine learning should be available to all, so we’re holding a day at OSCON to talk about the project, and explore collaboration.

We’ll have a full day of talks from TensorFlow contributors, great demos, and an open hacking room where you can get hands-on with TensorFlow, and learn how you can be a part of the project.

Attendance is open to any registered OSCON attendee, including expo hall passes. Register here.

Hacking Room

Alongside the session room, we’ll have a room set for groups to collaboratively work on TensorFlow-related projects. Drop in for as long as you want to collaborate and meet like-minded TensorFlow developers. At the end of the day, each group will get the chance to report back to the main presentation room. Read more ...

We typically interact with a web app by clicking and typing information. However, there are situations when this interaction is not convenient or possible. Voice is a much more common and convenient method for interaction. Ton Ngo and Yi-Hong Wang explain how TensorFlow.js can help a web-based electronic health record system leverage deep learning models to make this voice interface possible. Read more.

Average rating: *****
(5.00, 3 ratings)
Developing deep learning models with TensorFlow is often only half of the story. To be useful to the public, the model needs to be deployed. Hannes Hapke explains how to deploy your TensorFlow model easily with TensorFlow Serving, introduces an emerging project called Kubeflow, and highlights some deployment pitfalls like model versioning and deployment flow.

Machine learning offers a powerful toolkit for building complex predictive systems. These models can provide immense business value and are often deployed in high-consequence environments, but it can be extremely dangerous to think of those quick wins as coming for free. Paige Bailey explains what happens when your data changes over time and fresh models must be produced continuously. Read more.

Data scientists and model developers routinely trade off data size or model complexity in order to fit within limited GPU memory resources. Scott Soutter and Jason Furmanek discuss IBM's updates to TensorFlow, which dramatically increase memory and model size. This technique, which is being upstreamed to the open source community, provides the ability to load the entire model in system memory. Read more.
