Building a graphics engine in TensorFlow
TensorFlow is a generic computational framework, and by leveraging it to build graphics applications, we can start to see common structure between neural networks and other disparate fields
Speaker: Andrew Taber, Software Engineer at Intact Solutions
Andrew studied mathematics in college, and now he builds automated stress-testing simulation software on the web at Intact Solutions.
TensorFlow for Makers, some Autodesk Case Studies
This talk will cover 4 use cases of how TensorFlow is being used at Autodesk to learn predictive and generative models for working with 3D data, designing new shapes and controlling robots to assemble structures.
Speaker: Mike Haley, Senior Director of Machine Intelligence at Autodesk
Mike leads the Machine Intelligence group at Autodesk focused on ground breaking machine learning technologies for the future of making things which includes everything from 3D digital design to how physical creation or assembly occurs. His team develops the strategies for applying machine learning as well as performing research and development on techniques unique to designing and making. For the last several years Mike’s team has been focused on bringing geometric shape-analysis and high scale machine-learning techniques to 3D design information with the intent to make software a true partner in the design process.
