Introduction to TensorFlow in Perl

Google’s TensorFlow software is considered to be the world’s most advanced open source neural network library.
If you want to stay relevant in the coming AI-powered economy, then you need to learn how to utilize TensorFlow in your Perl code now!

Sponsored by The Perl Foundation, a small team of programmers has succeeded in implementing the first phase of TensorFlow support for the Perl programming language. Zakariyya Mughal, John Napiorkowski, and Will Braswell have released the AI::TensorFlow distribution on CPAN, along with two impressive demos of neural network capabilities.
The first demo is image classification, using a neural model which accepts images as input and generates as output the most likely categories which describe each image. Is it smart enough to recognize new images that it has never seen before? Can it be fooled or tricked into giving the wrong answer? You decide!
The second demo is genetic expression, using a neural model which can predict whether or not a specific gene will “express”, which is when the gene’s information is used to create a new protein molecule. The amazing thing is the neural model can accomplish this prediction without the need for either real-life laboratory experiments, or virtual biology simulations… Imagine the time and money saved!
Join us for live interactive sessions with the latest in cutting-edge machine learning in Perl. We predict that you won’t be sorry!
