Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning powering swarms of cloud containers talking to browsers running apps originally written in C++, now compiled to JS. Augmented and Virtual Reality are happening in your browser! Join Scott Hanselman as he explores the relationship between the Cloud and the Browser, many Languages and one Language, how it might all fit together and what might come next in this upbeat and edutaining talk.

Deep Learning has led to impressive results in image classification, but can also be used to explore new possibilities in art. In this talk, I'll introduce Deep Learning using examples in TensorFlow, and demo open source code you can use to train your own image classifier, and create your own artwork. At the end, I'll share my favorite educational resources you can use to learn more about machine learning, and of course all about TensorFlow.
