Real world applications of Machine Learning
Developers are helping to transform businesses with the help of AI tools – TensorFlow.
TensorFlow is an open-source machine learning library for research and production. TensorFlow offers APIs for beginners and experts to develop for desktop, mobile, web, and cloud.
With APIs, it makes life simpler for software developers.
One such company that uses it is KEWPIE. KEWPIE is a baby food producer. They use Tensor Flow to help detect bad ingredients and thus make baby food safe.
In the past, Kewpie depends on manual visual detection and inspection of our raw ingredients. With TensorFlow, algorithms that are announced in papers get implemented quickly, and there’s a low threshold for trying out new approaches. Thus, this could save manpower and redeploy the workers for more important tasks.
In healthcare, it is also use to help in diabetic retinopathy. With regular screening, it can help to reduce blindness. According to statistics, the results are promising and is way above generalists.
Using AI, it can also be used to protect plants and make food safer. For example, farmers can now use technology to diagnose the plants when they are attacked by diseases. Immediate action can be taken then waiting to send samples to the nearest lab. Time saved would have saved plots of vegetables.
The short session gave attendees a better understanding of how these technologies will affect our life in the near future. I find them especially useful in life sciences. Will it eventually replace a lot of the front desk workers or even doctors with AI. There seems to be the case and there is a growing trend towards that.
