Who is this presentation for?

  • ITDMs, IT architects, and developers

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Cloud computing basics

What you'll learn

  • Understand how Google's machine intelligence is changing the IT business by solving real-world problems with the power of deep neural networks and the scalability of cloud computing


TensorFlow, the open source library from Google, has been democratizing the world of machine intelligence since its launch last year. With TensorFlow, combined with the scalability of Google’s Cloud Machine Learning platform, now anyone can leverage deep learning technology cheaply and without much expertise. Kazunori Sato explores three examples of business that have adopted TensorFlow and Cloud ML to solve their real-world problems: a cucumber farmer in Japan who was able to build a deep learning-based cucumber sorter by himself, a used car auction service using TF for classifying car models and parts with 100x better training performance, and a global insurance company that has been able to increase prediction accuracy significantly on accident cases.
