Training your TensorFlow models in the cloud


TensorFlow is an open-source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. TensorFlow was originally developed by researchers and engineers working on the Google Brain Team within Google’s Machine Intelligence research organization for the purposes of conducting machine learning and deep neural networks research, but the system is general enough to be applicable in a wide variety of other domains as well.

In this talk we’ll cover the R interface to TensorFlow, a suite of packages that provide high-level interfaces to both deep learning models (Keras) and standard regression and classification models (Estimators), as well as tools for cloud training, experiment management, and production deployment.
