TensorFlow is an open source machine learning platform that can be used with Apache Kafka® for deep learning. Chris Mattmann, author of Machine Learning with TensorFlow, introduces us to TensorFlow as a Google technology that teaches computers how to think and make connections like humans do. For example, when there is a signifier that the mind processes, out comes a label to the object in front of you. TensorFlow is Google's version of wrangling various technologies to help group them together and work smoothly as large amounts of data flow through.
Chris also breaks down neural networks, how technology simulates cerebral processes that take place when our visual cortex receives a new image, plus a use case that involves Apache Kafka and event streaming to achieve TensorFlow's goals.
