Come along for a quick introduction to the basics of TensorFlow, Google's open source machine learning library.
We will go through how to implement a simple model in TensorFlow and then look at how we can train it to successfully classify handwritten digits.
The only prior knowledge required is a basic understanding of Python, and vague memories of first year maths. Feel free to bring a laptop with TensorFlow installed to follow along.
