Deep Learning with Tensorflow 2.0


Developed by Google and written in python, Tensorflow is the most popular deep learning framework. However, it is not perfect. To improve the developer experience, consolidate functionality, and expand on the ability to be deployed, Tensorflow 2 was developed. As of September 30th 2019, Tensorflow 2 is out of alpha and has been given a full release. This talk will address the motivations behind Tensorflow 2 and how it fixes some of the pain points of its predecessor. I will also include a practical example of how to effectively develop deep learning models using some of Tensorflow 2's features.
