Machine learning in the browser

Machine learning has really come of age thanks to ever increasing compute power and access to troves of data, what if we could respect the privacy of the users and run it on their device without sending data to a central server. Introducing tensorflow.js a JavaScript implementation of the very popular ML library from google, you can run it in inference mode or even train a model if you’d like.

In this talk we’ll explore what’s currently possible and some potential use cases.
