tensorflow.js – Why the Browser and Machine Learning are a perfect match

Oliver Zeigermann

tensorflow.js (https://js.tensorflow.org/) brings TensorFlow style machine learning to the browser. You define Machine Learning problems using JavaScript and push them over for fast computation to any GPU using WebGL. Or you train your model on a standard TensorFlow stack using high performance GPUs, convert the model and use it in the browser for prediction or transfer learning.

This might not sound like a big deal, but tight integration of Machine Learning with all the things that make the web great opens up a whole new world of applications in the areas of education, deployment, visualization, gaming, development, and overall UX. You will also learn how to do your own experiments.
