Book DescriptionAs a developer, you always need to keep an eye out and be ready for what will be trending soon, while also focusing on what's trending currently. So, what's better than learning about the integration of the best of both worlds, the present and the future? Artificial Intelligence (AI) is widely regarded as the next big thing after mobile, and Google's TensorFlow is the leading open source machine learning framework, the hottest branch of AI. This book covers more than 10 complete iOS, Android, and Raspberry Pi apps powered by TensorFlow and built from scratch, running all kinds of cool TensorFlow models offline on-device: from computer vision, speech and language processing to generative adversarial networks and AlphaZero-like deep reinforcement learning. You'll learn how to use or retrain existing TensorFlow models, build your own models, and develop intelligent mobile apps running those TensorFlow models. You'll learn how to quickly build such apps with step-by-step tutorials and how to avoid many pitfalls in the process with lots of hard-earned troubleshooting tips.

Who this book is forIf you're an iOS/Android developer interested in building and retraining others' TensorFlow models and running them in your mobile apps, or if you're a TensorFlow developer and want to run your new and amazing TensorFlow models on mobile devices, this book is for you. You'll also benefit from this book if you're interested in TensorFlow Lite, Core ML, or TensorFlow on Raspberry Pi.
Jeff Tang fell in love with classical AI more than two decades ago. After his MS in CS, he worked on Machine Translation for 2 years and then, to survive the long AI winter, he worked on enterprise apps, voice apps, web apps, and mobile apps at startups, AOL, Baidu, and Qualcomm. He developed a top-selling iOS app with millions of downloads and was recognized by Google as a Top Android Market Developer. He reconnected with modern AI in 2015 and knew that AI will be his passion and commitment for the next two decades. One of his favorite topics is to make AI available anytime anywhere and hence the book.
