J.J. Allaire, RStudio Ihaka Lecture Series 2019 speaker
J.J. Allaire

TensorFlow is an open-source software library for numerical computation and machine intelligence developed by researchers and engineers working on the Google Brain Team.

In this talk J.J. Allaire will cover the R interface to TensorFlow, a suite of packages that provide high-level interfaces to both deep learning models (Keras) and standard regression and classification models (Estimators), as well as tools for cloud training, experiment management and production deployment.

The talk will also discuss deep learning more broadly (what it is, how it works, and where it might be relevant to users of R in the years ahead).

About the speaker

J.J. Allaire is the founder and CEO of RStudio, and the creator of the RStudio IDE. J.J. is the author of the R interfaces to TensorFlow and Keras.
