Workshop: “Machine Learning on Android”
Android Community Influencer at Softvision
AI Team Lead at Softvision
Why is Machine Learning important for smartphones, especially in this era when mobile took over?
Traditionally, machine learning has been associated with huge storage space and high-powered GPU machines. However, it can be expensive and time-consuming to send the data to such a device through a network connection. Running on mobile makes it possible to deliver interactive and real time applications in a way that’s not possible when depending on the internet connection.
This workshop aims to help attendees understand how machine learning works beyond the scene and learn how to integrate models into your mobile apps effectively and efficiently. We will go together through all the steps required to build a custom model of object detection in Tensorflow, from gathering and labeling data to training and testing the model. Finally, we will set up the model to run on your personal mobile devices using Tensorflow Lite, which is currently the most common deep learning solution for mobile platforms.
Bring your laptop and your own Android testing device!
Software requirements: Android Studio and a git client installed before the workshop starts.
