Web Directions Year round learning for web and digital professionals

Web Directions Code ’21 session spotlight–What could you do with a neural network in your browser?

What could you do with a neural network in your browser?

Ningxin Hu, Principal Engineer Intel

Neural Networks are an approach to machine learning (specifically Deep Learning) that are now widely used from supercomputers to your smartphone (via APIs like CireML in iOS and Neural Networks API on Android).
The Web Neural Network API (WebNN) in development at the W3C aims to bring Neural Networks natively to the browser, and with them solutions to a range of common use cases including Face Recognition, Facial Feature Detection, image captioning, and much more.
And best of all you can start exploring it today with the WebNN polyfill.

In this presentation Ningxin Hu, one of the editors of the WebNN specification, takes us through its features and aims, and how we can get started using WebNN right now.
