TensorFlow has a strong developer community in India with 13 TensorFlow User Groups and 20+ Google Developer Experts. In September, these groups came together to organise the “ TFUG India Summit”, a 4-day online event with four tracks. You can check out the recordings for these talks below.


In today’s competitive environment, firms seek to increase their growth opportunities, improve their client experience, reduce costs and enhance operational efficiency.

To solve this common problem and get moving faster, APIs (Application Programming interface) have opened new opportunities in the fintech industry to offer innovative Banking and Financial solutions for companies to integrate financial functions within existing operations seamlessly.

Currently, there are more than 75 TFUGs around the globe, on 6 continents, with…

We see it contributing to cutting-edge innovations: precision medicine, injury prediction, use-cases like predicting diabetic retinopathy and autonomous cars.

By allowing machines to learn, reason, act and adapt in the real world, artificial intelligence and machine learning are helping businesses unlock deeper levels of knowledge and insights from massive amounts of data. Most AI algorithms need huge computing power to accomplish tasks from the huge amounts of data. For this reason, they rely on cloud servers to perform their computations, and aren’t…


Glad you like it! Thanks for the feedback. I will think of coming up with another article on your suggestions.
