Getting started with TensorFlow

TensorFlow is an open source software library from Google for numerical computation using data flow graphs. It provides a flexible platform for defining and running machine-learning algorithms and is particularly well suited for building deep neural networks. This workshop will offer some practical, hands-on experience with TensorFlow. We'll start by start by providing some background and motivation for problems in machine learning, introduce some core TensorFlow concepts, and play with some fun demos. Then, we'll dive into a deeper exploration of TensorFlow, and build and train several different neural nets. In the process we'll use some of TensorFlow's high-level libraries and tooling.
