Hands on with TensorFlow.js

Attended the TensorFlow.js 101 talk and feeling inspired? Come check out our workshop which will walk you through 3 common journeys when using TensorFlow.js. We will start with demonstrating how to use one of our pre-made models - super easy to use JS classes to get you working with ML fast. We will then look into how to retrain one of these models in minutes using in browser transfer learning via Teachable Machine and how that can be then used on your own custom website, and finally end with a hello world of writing your own model code from scratch to make a simple linear regression to predict fictional house prices based on their square footage.


Workshop requires some working knowledge of using HTML / CSS / JS to get the most out of it. No Machine Learning background is assumed.

Attending TensorFlow.js 101 talk is highly recommended to get the most out of the session.

Workshop level

Great for beginners or researchers looking to get the reach and scale of web technologies so more people can use their models. No ML knowledge is assumed.

Workshop schedule & location

The schedule will be announced later. The workshop will be recorded.

AI Assistant with DeepPavlov

Simple chatbots can be built with a number of simple rules, but their UX will be very narrow and limited. Building complex AI assistants, in contrast, requires a lot of effort. To make your users happy, you have to master many things at once: rules, intents, finite state machines, chit-chat tech, dialog flow management, and many other things. It's a job for an entire team. Fortunately, you don't have to hire it. Instead, you can rely upon your trusty software from DeepPavlov.ai. With it, you can offload the complexity of managing the entire infrastructure to DeepPavlov Agent – an open-source Conversational AI orchestrator. Next, you can pick state-of-the-art NLP components from DeepPavlov Library to decode human emotions and understand their intents. Finally, you can pick some of the available skills from DeepPavlov Dream to avoid reinventing the wheel like chit-chat.

In this workshop, you'll be guided through the entire process, from an overview of the platform to building a sample AI assistant that you'll be able to re-use later in your own work.

By the end of this workshop you'll be able to use the provided components from the DeepPavlov family of projects to build simple AI assistant:

  • work with existing NLP components from DeepPavlov Library like sentiment and emotion classifiers
  • build simple goal-oriented skill with DeepPavlov Go-Bot
  • combine them together with the DeepPavlov Agent into a simple AI assistant
  • augment your simple AI assistant with some of the DeepPavlov Dream pre-built skills
Workshop level
