Hello Makers!

Oswald Campesato is back with another great presentation - Tensorflow 2. Following is a brief agenda for the evening:

6:00 - 6:30 PM: Doors open for networking and pizza

6:30 - 7:30 PM: Oswald's talk

7:30 - 8:00 PM: Q&A

8:00 PM - Event Ends


A fast-paced introduction to TensorFlow 2 about some important new features (such as generators and the @tf.function decorator) and TF 1.x functionality that's been removed from TF 2 (yes, tf.Session() has retired).

Concise code samples are presented to illustrate how to use new features of TensorFlow 2.

You'll also get a quick introduction to lazy operators (if you know FRP this will be super easy), along with a code comparison between TF 1.x/iterators with and TF 2/generators with

Finally, we'll look at some tf.keras code samples that are based on TensorFlow 2.

Although familiarity with TF 1.x is helpful, newcomers with an avid interest in learning about TensorFlow 2 can benefit from this session.
