Google Releases TensorFlow 1.0 With New Machine Learning Tools (venturebeat.com) 20

An anonymous reader shares a VentureBeat report: At Google's inaugural TensorFlow Dev Summit in Mountain View, California, today, Google announced the release of version 1.0 of its TensorFlow open source framework for deep learning, a trendy type of artificial intelligence. Google says the release is now production-ready by way of its application programing interface (API). But there are also new tools that will be part of the framework, which includes artificial neural networks that can be trained on data and can then make inferences about new data. Now there are more traditional machine learning tools, including K-means and support vector machines (SVMs), TensorFlow's engineering director, Rajat Monga, said at the conference. And there's an integration with the Python-based Keras library, which was originally meant to ease the use of the Theano deep learning framework. And there are now "canned estimators," or models, Monga said, including simple neural networks to start using quickly.

    I was experimenting with sentiment analysis in tensorflow, and the other day I started receiving segfaults. Turns out that multiple changes, one of which was in a malloc implementation, had broken my build, and probably all the people using python tensorflow on ubuntu (which is probably like half of all tensorflow users). Not the first time this has happened.

    This thing is marvelous, but it's sitting on a high-rise of magic that's a floor too high.

    • I agree, but now that we have a 1.0 release we should have a choice between a release version and a working version.

  • The problem is that intelligence is ill defined. Based on how the term is used, the best conclusion is that anything that calculates has at least a slight bit of intelligence.

      I'd go further than that. In my opinion anything that has an active switch (say a mechanical thermostat) has the intelligence equivalent of a single bit. Note that while this can be represented by a single bit, it is a bit more complex than that, because it takes some action based on that bit. (Some action here is just allowing or forbidding current to flow, but that counts.)

    I have been a contributer on Slashdot for over 15 years. There have been things to complain about over the years, but FOR GOD SAKE don't let the banner adds chase everyone away. What's more annoying than a Banner Ad? A banner add that doesn't scroll away as you read.

    Serious, I will never visit Slashdot again if this isn't fixed ASAP.

    Don't be like the thousands of other crap sites that are doing this now. I don't care if it is in the advertisers JavaScript, find somewhat to stop that shit OR I AM GONE!

    • It's bad enough that the banner ads stay visible for some time mo matter what you do, but some of them never go away forcing you to refresh and hope you get an ad that will eventually go away,

      Train tensorflow to remove ads. It must be useful for something.

    • I use uBlock Origin in Firefox and I don't see any ads.

      Is there a way that tensorflow can fix the banner ad problem?

    • Sorry about misspelling Ad as Add so many times. I was a bit aggravated and in a hurry posting my rant. I have AdBlock on several other browsers and machines, but the one I'm on now is a company box and I don't use it for as much random surfing as my home box. That said, I've installed AdBlock now and all is well again, though I'm still a little unhappy about having to do this to continue to use Slashdot in a a sane manner. It reminds me of having to specifically choose classic mode when they changed th

    • Another ad strategy that burns me up is the screen goes dark and an ad pops up before you can read the page. I barely get to read a few words!! These sites get me so angry that I leave.. I understand you need revenue and I do click on some ads that address my needs or wants, or are simply interesting.. I don't mind side ads that scroll up together with each page. I don't mind a well placed long partition ad.
    • Just use AdBlock. I've been using it for years and when I see a Slashdot page loaded by someone NOT using adblock it looks absolutely horrifying!!! Install AdBlock, and enjoy a nice clean UI on just about every website anywhere. It really is refreshing not to see all that crap.
  • why would I want a machine to learn with programming it? even when everyone stops programming due to technology evolution, I'll still program for the sake and fun of it. Right now I just got started but I know that programming is for me. Unless this helps programmer to get to coding the stuff that matters or something. but you still have to code a program like this

You are in a maze of little twisting passages, all different.
