A little over a month into the AI TensorFlow Challenge and we have 130 participants who've tried out the AI TensorFlow Tutorial, and about 80 who've successfully completed all 5 steps of the tutorial - way to go! The first 100 participants to complete the entire tutorial will win themselves a $25 Amazon.com gift card, and we also have $2,500 in article prizes up for grabs. Early Christmas shopping anyone?
Also, if you found the tutorial useful and are looking to learn more about TensorFlow, Packt Publishing is offering a free Getting Started with TensorFlow eBook. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
Did you say 40 years? Wow I applaud your persistent effort to try to understand it! I'm going to second what Peter and Carlos said i.e. go with the flow and try our tutorial - it's simple and fun and the CP team would be happy to help you if you have any questions. Cheers.
I've grabbed the book, and I will definitely study it. But from what I see at the moment, it has nothing to do with tensors. I suspect that the internal implementation of the machine learning algorithms depend upon tensor theory, but there is nothing of the sort visible at a user level. Still, it looks like fun, and I will definitely spend some time playing with it. For now, though, I need to prepare for hunting elk next week in unfamiliar territory, covered in snow, and in temperatures below 20 ° F. Though I've had a hunting license since I was 16, just to help support game preservation and management, I've never been hunting. Once I get through the hunt, I'll be getting through the book.
Thanks for that feedback Roger, and look forward to hearing your thoughts on the book or any other TensorFlow resource that you find useful and insightful. I've never been hunting before, and don't know what it's like, but I imagine it's exciting to try something new. Good luck and stay warm!
Never mind, I just popped by to give you the tip of the decade regarding salad: You should always dress your salad in plenty of oil! It makes it a lot easiere to scrape it into the trash can before you send out for pizza!
