TensorFlow.js with Nick Kreeger and Ping Yu
Join us for an evening of TensorFlow.js talks at SFHTML5! Speakers Nick Kreeger (@nkreeger) and Ping Yu (@pyu10055) will share their TensorFlow.js expertise and answer your questions. Talk #1—Intro to TensorFlow.js with Nick Kreeger This talk will dive into the origins of TensorFlow.js and what the platform delivers to developers today. Runtimes for browser and server side will be highlighted through demos, concepts, and sample APIs. About the speaker Nick Kreeger (@nkreeger) is a Senior Engineer at Google Brain TL for TensorFlow.js - previously TL on the Google Store, Strava, Rdio, and Songbird (Mozilla) Talk #2—Audio Model with TenorFlow.js TensorFlow.js is the recently-released JavaScript version of TensorFlow that runs in the browser and Node.js. In this talk, we want to introduce the TensorFlow.js ML framework, and show how to perform the complete machine-learning workflow, including the training, client-side deployment, and transfer learning. We focused on the machine-learning task of word recognition using audio inputs, utilizing the Speech Command Dataset (Warden, 2017). A convolutional neural network (CNN) is defined using the Keras-like high-level API of TensroFlow.js. The input to the CNN are the spectrograms generated from the web browser’s WebAudio API. The training process occurs in Node.js, which binds directly to the CUDA-accelerated kernels of TensorFlow. The trained model is converted into a browser-friendly format and deployed in the web browser for low-latency, real-time on-device inference accelerated by WebGL. In addition, we will show that the deployed model can be fine-tuned and saved at client side, achieving recognition of words outside the original vocabulary. Thanks to the cross-platform nature of the browser, the deployment and fine-tuning can occur in supported web browsers on a wide range of devices. About the speaker Ping Yu (@pyu10055) is a Senior Engineer at Google Brain, a core team member of TensorFlow.js, and previously the TL for Google Attribution.
