Nowadays, Machine Learning has become a major component in large business operations that are utilizing the technological advancements of artificial intelligence. The term, ‘Machine Learning’ was coined back in 1959 by IBM but hasn’t seen any significant progression until 2016. ML is considered a subset of artificial intelligence, as it provides the systems needed for an AI to learn, improve upon, and apply what it experiences without explicit programming to tell it to do so. To put it simply, machine learning focuses on developing frameworks for computers to access data, use data, and learn from said data on their own. Although complex in its own right, machine learning frameworks such as Google’s TensorFlow, have simplified the process, refining down results, training models, and analytic predictions. This has caused a massive ripple across all industries that use information technology, including healthcare, automotive, gaming, and aviation to name a few.

About TensorFlow and its Purpose

TensorFlow is an open-source machine learning framework or software library, created by the Google Brain team. It makes use of observation skills and reasoning skills through the combination of machine learning, deep learning, and efficiency algorithms that speed up the learning and application process. The framework has a seamless front-end API, courtesy of programming language Python, which is useful for building all sorts of applications, and it utilizes C++ (programming language) for high-performance purposes.

Although categorized as a software library, it is actually a set of APIs, that allow programmers to have full control over the models they build, meaning that they do not have to hand over low-level algorithms each time they want to use the codebase. Plus, TensorFlow works as a visual learning tool through TensorBoard, which gives programmers real-time visualizations of all machine learning work done within the framework.

What are some  Key Highlights of TensorFlow?

TensorFlow allows programmers to exclusively focus in on the overall logic of the application they are building rather than having to deal with or program every micro detail into the application (this is a process called abstraction). This means less time is spent on incorporating in multiple algorithms that result in one actionable function.

TensorFlow has an eager execution mode, which is a method that allows programmers to modify and evaluate each individual graph operation rather than requiring them to develop one whole graph as a single object. The TensorBoard visualization tool also allows programmers to profile and inspect these graphs in a similar way you would on an interactive dashboard, making it quite user-friendly.

The flexible nature of the TensorFlow architecture allows its computation to be deployed across a large variety of platforms. This can be used to make these platforms more efficient; allow developers to create in-browser incarnations for shared developmental models, and allow performance to be amplified.

TensorFlow brings machine learning to everyone as programmers can use it to build deep neural networks that can then be run across thousands of computers through data centers. Due to the fact that it is open-source software, industry sectors and associated companies can leverage TensorFlow for natural language processing, image recognition, and video/audio message scanning.  Currently, TensorFlow is being widely used to prevent blindness in patients with diabetic retinopathy.

What Can TensorFlow Do Exactly?

Due to the fact that almost all modern living amenities are powered through data, such as Netflix’s recommendations list and Siri’s answers on the iPhone, major businesses and companies are using machine learning through TensorFlow to improve upon internal processes. Things like conversion rates are getting boosted as companies are now able to use predictive analysis to make more accurate decisions. Beyond this, companies are looking for new ways to enhance customer service by using chatbots, voice activated devices, and text-based applications. TensorFlow impacts these by providing the prediction, perception, understanding, and classification require to make these types of applications work.

What Are The Real World Applications of TensorFlow?

  1. It can be used with voice and sound recognition based applications such as voice search, voice recognition in IoT, security, and automotive sectors and in sentiment analysis.  More commonly known, TensorFlow algorithms (models) perform as customer service agents in voice-activated assistants like Google Now.
  2. It can be used in text-based applications for threat detection, sentimental analysis, emotion recognition and fraud detection. Common examples of these include Smart replies, a popular framework that uses sequence-to-sequence learning to automatically generate email responses, and Google translate. Using neural networks tensorflow can be very useful to develop conversational chatbot.
  3. It can be used for face recognition, photo clustering, machine vision, and image search applications often found in the aviation, automotive, and healthcare industries. These applications are commonly used to identify individuals or understand an object’s context. TensorFlow algorithms are being used in the healthcare industry to spot patterns, identify information, and scan diseases in humans.
  4. The TensorFlow Time Series uses algorithms to extra significant statistics, forecasting non-specific time periods. Common examples of this type of use are in Netflix’s customer analysis statistics that state how much time was spent on the platform across a specific time period and relate that to what a customer may like to watch in the future.
  5. TensorFlow can be used with real-time thread detection in gaming, at airports, and the security sector. An example of this would be the use of TensorFlow for video classification datasets as a way to accelerate the understanding of transfer learning, representation learning, and noisy data modeling.

TensorFlow is categorized as a second generation machine learning system and is currently being used by Google itself due to the wide-ranging capabilities and implications it has. Beyond making a ripple across the entire IT sector, TensorFlow is best known for its capability at handling unstructured data, dealing with large-scale problems, and conveying images with high accuracy. This is what makes this open-source library a must-have framework companion for companies who are adopting artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, and machine learning.
