Presentation: TensorFlow: Pushing the ML Boundaries

Track: Hardware Frontiers: Changes Affecting Software Developers Today

Location: Pacific LMNO

Duration: 2:55pm - 3:45pm

Day of week: Tuesday

Persona: General Software

What You’ll Learn

  • Inspire audience with the latest astonishing advancements in DL, achieved by Google and partners by showcasing real examples
  • Show the need for simplification & scale, and what Google together with the community is doing to advance the field
  • Give devs a call-to-action to develop tools already available and what they can expect in the near future

Abstract

In this talk, you will see how Google uses Machine Learning to address problems that were not solvable just a year ago. We will look at some of the latest models we’ve developed and where the opportunities & challenges are, for example how we can automize the machine learning process. We will also describe latest advancements in TensorFlow to deal with model complexity and how developers can get start building complex models today. Finally, we will talk about the need for compute power & scale, using hardware accelerators like the TPU.
