Machine Learning is rapidly gaining traction from image classifiers to image filters to face recognition and beyond. Machine Learning and Mobile puts you at the forefront for the next frontier. This talk will be designed for experienced Android Developers who want to learn how to build and train their first model for mobile use. The talk will focus on the starting point of building and training a model using Python rather than using a predefined one. Expect this talk to cover less about Android internals and focus more on machine learning for beginners.
