TensorFlow is a Machine Learning cross-platform that has started to be adopted widely worldwide. Even though TensorFlow was just released by Google in 2015, it has grown from a software library of machine learning to an entire ecosystem to support different types of Machine Learning, such as deep learning, complex neural networks, AI, just to mention some examples.
The TensorFlow 2.0 Alpha is available today. The newest features include the introduction of Keras, a high-level and user-friendly API standard for Machine Learning that simplifies the process of building and training models to be used by beginners and experts. With TensorFlow 2.0, Google is pursuing to improve usability and clarity, at the same time, they had listened to the developers who claimed for more documentation of the library.
During the Google I/O 2019, Google announced the introduction of TensorFlow Lite, a Machine learning framework released for mobile development (Android, iOS, Firebase) using an Apache 2.0 license.
The areas of application for this technology are undoubtedly amazing. Some companies have started to use Tensor Flow to improve the customer experience; eBay, Dropbox, and Airbnb are some examples. On the research field, some of the areas of application of the platform include projects that go from the detection of breast cancer to the forecast of earthquake aftershocks.
