Highlights from the TensorFlow Developer Summit, 2018

    Comment(0)

Today, we’re holding the second TensorFlow Developer Summit at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA! The event brings together over 500 TensorFlow users in-person and thousands tuning into the livestream at TensorFlow events around the world. The day is filled with new product announcements along with technical talks from the TensorFlow team and guest speakers.

Machine learning is solving challenging problems that impact everyone around the world. Problems that we thought were impossible or too complex to solve are now possible with this technology. Using TensorFlow, we’ve already seen great advancements in many different fields. For example:

Astrophysicists are using TensorFlow to analyze large amounts of data from the Kepler mission to discover new planets.
Medical researchers are using ML techniques with TensorFlow to assess a person’s cardiovascular risk of a heart attack and stroke.
Air Traffic Controllers are using TensorFlow to predict flight routes through crowded airspace for safe and efficient landings.
Engineers are using TensorFlow to analyze auditory data in the rainforest to detect logging trucks and other illegal activities.
Scientists in Africa are using TensorFlow to detect diseases in Cassava plants to improving yield for farmers.

Rainforest Connection is using Google’s TensorFlow to curb illegal deforestation

    Comment(0)

TensorFlow is Google’s open source framework for machine learning. Rainforest Connection is using this framework to protect the rainforests, such as the Amazon. The method is ingenious and representative of a utilitarian society that we should all be lurching towards.

It’s pretty much impossible to expect investments in human guards across the entirety of the Amazon rainforest. So what’s the next best thing? The people living in the rainforest themselves. Collaborating with local tribes in the Amazon, such as the Tembé tribe from central Amazon, Rainforest Connection has come up with a solution that combines the best of the old world with the new.
