Introduction to Extending Google Assistant
Deep Convolutional Neural Networks using TensorFlow and TensorFlow Serving
Talk: Introduction to Extending Google Assistant
Description: Learn about the latest dynamic in technology -- Voice User Interface (VUI). Learn how Google Assistant works and how you can leverage the platform to add an additional layer of access and interactivity to your users.
Talk: Deep Convolutional Neural Networks using TensorFlow and TensorFlow Serving
Description: TensorFlow is a powerful open-source library from Google for machine intelligence. It is used by researchers, engineers, students, and others. It has been key in the democratization of deep learning across multiple domains. In this talk, Shruti will walk through the process of training an image classification model using TensorFlow in Keras, and then using TensorFlow Serving to serve the model and run prediction on images. After building your own application, Shruti will show how this looks in a real production environment - how the Machine Learning team at VSCO leverages TensorFlow and TensorFlow Serving for real-time image classification.
