In December 1964, over a single evening session in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, John Coltrane and his quartet recorded the entirety of A Love Supreme. This jazz album is considered Coltrane’s masterpiece – the culmination of his spiritual awakening – and sold a million copies. What it represents is all too human: a climb out …

We are in the era of automation. Each year, robots are becoming more and more visible in our cities. At this point, it isn’t that difficult to think of a future where we will be in a full-blown cohabitation set-up with robots. The question is, are cities prepared for a robot-filled future? What can we do …

Artificial intelligence developer DeepMind has just announced its latest milestone: a bot called AlphaStar that plays the popular real-time strategy game StarCraft II at Grandmaster level. This isn’t the first time a bot has outplayed humans in a strategy war game. In 1981, a program called Eurisko, developed by artificial intelligence (AI) pioneer Doug Lenat, …

TF Dev Summit ‘19 | TensorFlow Federated (TFF): Machine Learning on Decentralized Data TensorFlow Federated (TFF) is an open-source framework for machine learning and other computations on decentralized data. TFF has been developed to facilitate open research and experimentation with Federated Learning (FL), an approach to machine learning where a shared global model is trained …

TF Dev Summit ‘19 | Exascale Deep Learning for Climate Analytics Climate change will have fundamental socio-economic impact and it is imperative for us to understand it better. This talk will show how TensorFlow was utilized on the world’s fastest supercomputer in order to extract pixel level segmentation masks of extreme weather phenomena in climate …

TF Dev Summit ‘19 | AI Experiments: Making AI Accessible through Play Learn about recently open-sourced creative tools and projects built on top of Tensorflow.js, and how they are being used by makers, developers, and communities around the world. Speaker: Irene Alvarado, Google

Many advanced artificial intelligence projects say they are working toward building a conscious machine, based on the idea that brain functions merely encode and process multisensory information. The assumption goes, then, that once brain functions are properly understood, it should be possible to program them into a computer. Microsoft recently announced that it would spend …

TF Dev Summit ’19 | TensorFlow.jl: A Julia Front End to the TensorFlow World Julia is a new dynamic scientific programming language that’s as fast as C while maintaining an easy-to-use syntax with powerful metaprogramming. In this talk, we’ll explore how the TensorFlow.jl package lets you seamlessly combine Julia with TensorFlow, TensorBoard, and your existing …

TF Dev Summit ’19 | What’s new in TensorBoard TensorBoard provides the visualization needed for machine learning experimentation. This talk will cover some exciting new functionality on using TensorBoard within Colab, an improved hyperparameter tuning with TensorFlow, and more. Speaker: Gal Oshri, Product Manager

Financial institutions that implement AI early have the most to gain from its use, but also face the largest risks. The often-opaque nature of AI decisions and related concerns of algorithmic bias, fiduciary duty, uncertainty, and more have left implementation of the most cutting-edge AI uses at a standstill. However, a newly released report from …
