Q&A with TensorFlow Expert Sam Abrahams
By Emily Wilson • February 01, 2017
"I've worked with some really amazing companies and projects over the past couple of years. I've created object detection mechanisms, I've created chat bots, I've created many robots that can self-drive themselves. I've even created real-time analytics for mobile game companies. All of this using TensorFlow, Google's latest and greatest machine learning library," said Sam Abrahams, TensorFlow expert and consultant.
Based on this experience and expertise, Sam developed a new course called Deep Learning with TensorFlow, which he'll start teaching at Metis in San Francisco later this month.
"TensorFlow is really powerful for a number of reasons," he continued during a recent interview. "It's more than just a deep learning or machine learning framework. It's a mathematical computation library. That means that it has the flexibility to be able to create and experiment with brand new models instead of just being stuck with out of the box models that some other libraries provide."
He expressed excitement about the upcoming course, which starts February 20th.
"I think everyone who takes the course is going to feel like they're right there on the edge of modern research and won't be intimidated by deep learning," he said. "More than that, I think everyone who takes this course is going to be thrilled with their ability to really take these incredible amounts of data and create brand new solutions for problems that are out there."
Watch the full interview above. Interested in hearing more from Sam? RSVP for his upcoming webinar, which takes place Wednesday, February 8th at 12:30 pm PDT. He will demonstrate how to load one of TensorFlow's pre-trained state-of-the-art image classification models, prepare it for deployment, and use it as part of a simple Flask web application.
Yes, SQL is an old language developed in the 70’s. But many great and lasting technological advances came about in that same decade. For this post, we sat down with Jonathan Balaban, a Metis Sr. Data Scientist who helped develop our Live Online SQL Fundamentals part-time course. He discusses how he and others on the team came to develop this course based on bootcamp graduate feedback, why SQL is important to know, and why it’s likely to continue standing the test of time.
Paul Trowbridge, instructor of our upcoming Live Online Statistical Foundations for Data Science & Machine Learning course, discussed the need for a firm stats foundation, talked about his career, and more during a recent Q&A.
As Viacom's Vice President of Analytics and Measurement Sciences, Sergey Fogelson uses machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques almost every day. In this Q&A, he discusses why he's excited to share his knowledge with students in our upcoming Live Online Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence Principles course.
