01011100      COMPUTING AND SEMICONDUCTORS      10100101

2017DeepLearing1On July 13, in Santa Clara, a full-day course is offered which will provide you with the hands-on knowledge you need to develop deep learning computer vision applications – both on embedded systems and in the cloud – with TensorFlow, one of today’s most popular frameworks for deep learning.

TensorFlow, the open-source framework for deep learning created by Google, has experienced explosive growth in popularity. Its powerful syntax allows for:


* Distributed computation
* Improved efficiency
* Modularization

enabling developers to turn high-level designs into the low-level mathematical operations required for machine learning algorithms.
