Title: MLKit on Mobile

In the year 2018 the powers of silicon and electricity combined to create something amazing: a machine that could schedule salon appointments! You too can harness this technology, thanks to Google's (beta) release of ML Kit! Whether it's extracting text from images, scanning bar codes or even performing some complex TensorFlow Lite custom evaluations — ML Kit has something for the individual looking for machines to do the heavy lifting!

This talk will go over all the Machine Learning functionality that is available to you through ML Kit, providing code samples along the way. As an added bonus, each feature will be demonstrated live on a real Android device!

Speaker: Adam Thompson from Nvidia
