Google has made extraordinary advances in Machine Learning (ML) over the past few years. These breakthroughs requires enormous amounts of computation, both to train as well as run the underlying machine learning models. That's why we've built and deployed the Tensor Processing Unit (TPU), to allow us to support larger and larger amounts of ML workloads. In this talk, we'll look at the architecture of the TPU, how you write effective TensorFlow code to utilize its power, and how Google is using it to break new frontiers in Machine Learning.
