TensorFlow with Greg Corrado


“You don’t mind if failures slow things down, but its very important that failures do not stop forward progress.”

TensorFlow is an open source machine learning library intended to bring large-scale, distributed machine learning and deep learning to everyone. Google recently released the framework to the public as a second-generation API, having learned from the successes and failures of DistBelief.

Greg Corrado is a senior research scientist and tech lead at Google, where he focuses on the research areas of machine intelligence, machine perception and natural language processing.
