Rajat Monga is a director of engineering at Google where he works on TensorFlow. TensorFlow is a framework for numerical computation developed at Google.
The majority of TensorFlow users are building machine learning applications such as image recognition, recommendation systems, and natural language processing–but TensorFlow is actually applicable to a broader range of scientific computation than just machine learning. TensorFlow has APIs for decision trees, support vector machines, and linear algebra libraries.
The current focus of the TensorFlow team is usability. There are thousands of engineers building data intensive applications with TensorFlow, but Rajat and the rest of the TensorFlow team would like to see millions more. In today’s show, Rajat and I discussed how TensorFlow is becoming more usable, as well as some of the developments in TensorFlow around edge computing, TensorFlow Hub, and TensorFlow.js, which allows TensorFlow to run in the browser.
