An AI system for editing music in videos

Amateur and professional musicians alike may spend hours pouring over YouTube clips to figure out exactly how to play certain parts of their favorite songs. But what if there were a way to play a video and isolate the only instrument you wanted to hear?

A project based introduction to TensorFlow.js

In this post we introduce how to use TensorFlow.js by demonstrating how it was used in the simple project Neural Titanic. In this project, we show how to visualize the evolution of the predictions of a single layer neural network as it is being trained on the tabular Titanic Dataset for the task of binary classification of passenger survival.

Pandas on Ray – Early Lessons from Parallelizing Pandas

In our last blog post, we introduced Pandas on Ray with some preliminary progress for making Pandas workflows faster by requiring only a single line of code change.
