Average rating: *****
(5.00, 2 ratings)
Join Jonathon Manning, Tim Nugent, and Paris Buttfield-Addison to get up to speed with the new machine learning features of iOS and learn how to apply the Vision and Core ML frameworks to solve practical problems in object detection, face recognition, and more. These frameworks run on-device, so they work quickly with no network access, making them cost effective and user-privacy conscious. Read more.

Matt Ellis (TIBCO Software), Rei Kurokawa (Hitachi High-Tech Solutions)
Average rating: *****
(5.00, 1 rating)
By the year 2020, the world will have an estimated 20 billion IoT devices. Storing, processing, reasoning with, and extracting business value out of this data will require huge computational and financial resources. Matt Ellis and Rei Kurokawa share an approach that uses TensorFlow and Project Flogo to make predictions directly on edge devices without depending on cloud computing. Read more.
