January: Forem Twitch Events Roundup πŸ‘Ύ

In January Nick Taylor and I kicked off a new month of Twitch streams. This is a round up of all the wonderful guests who joined us.

Walkthrough Wednesday with Gant Laborde

We talked to Gant Laborde, CIO at Infinite Red, about AI and shared TensorFlow demos.

Be sure to check out some of the demos Gant shared.

AI Trainable Tic Tac Toe
Train this AI to play the best game of Tic Tac Toe.

Enjoying The Show
This demo is an experiment for connecting speakers and audiences using AI. It uses webcams to share the dominant facial expression in the audience with the speaker. This helps the speaker gauge feedback from the audience just as they would by looking out at the faces in the crowd.

The AI Sorting Hat
Sketch on the canvas to see which house your sketch is sorted in to. Watch out for the β€œeaster egg” you can find by drawing a certain mark πŸ’€.
