TensorFlow Community Spotlight program update

Posted by Marcus Chang, TensorFlow Program Manager

In June we started the TensorFlow Community Spotlight Program to offer the developer community an opportunity to showcase their hard work and passion for ML and AI by submitting their TensorFlow projects for the chance to be featured and recognized on Twitter with the hashtag #TFCommunitySpotlight.

Olesya Chernyavskaya, a Community Spotlight winner, created a tool in TensorFlow to track posture and blur the screen if a person is sitting poorly.

Now a little over four months in, we’ve received many great submissions and it’s been amazing to see all of the creative uses of TensorFlow across Python, JavaScript, Android, iOS, and many other areas of TensorFlow.

We’d like to learn about your projects, too. You can share them with us using this form. Here are our previous Spotlight winners:

Pranav Natekar

Pranav used TensorFlow to create a tool that identifies patterns in Indian Classical music to help students learn the Tabla. Pranav’s GitHub → http://goo.gle/2Z5f7Op
