✨💡 This is an ace idea from @sarah_edo! 💕

👩‍💻 Be on the lookout for a @TensorFlow Advent Calendar tomorrow, as well, highlighting meaningful, high-impact projects and papers from our community. If you'd like for yours to be considered, please shoot me an @-mention!
#TFadvent begins today! 😄

For our first project, I'd like to highlight this accessibility example from @shekitup that uses @TensorFlowJS to interpret sign language—and then translates those signs into input that can be used by a home assistant! 🗣️✨

🎁 Day #2 of #TFadvent:

🤖 Check out this project from a recent hackathon at @ColbyCollege! The team trained a @TensorFlow model to learn muscle movements, then used that model to send signals to a prosthetic arm, controlling one finger at a time. ✨

👉: m.facebook.com/notes/daviscon…
🎉 Day #3 of #TFadvent:

#Creatability, a collection of experiments exploring ways to make creative tools more accessible. The team: @AbilityNYU @JAZDeafMusical @openupmusic @ChanceyFleet @BerkeleyBlink, and more.

😁 Many are built with @TensorFlowJS!

👉 g.co/creatability
🧙‍♂️ Day #4 of #TFadvent:

A #VR app from @jamesckane made with @unity3d, @LeapMotion hand-tracking, and @TensorFlow! Predicts 3D glyph drawings and casts specific magic spells in response. ✨

👉 Learn more about the project and how to make your own magic: jamesckane.com/case-study/app…
✨🎹 Day #5 of @TFadvent:

Check out Latent Cycles from @teropa! Each of the four corners in this space is a little melodic pattern generated using ImprovRNN and #Magenta.

🖊️ Run this example in a browser with @CodePen: codepen.io/teropa/full/rd…

📰 Blog: magenta.tensorflow.org/blog/2018/05/0…
✨🥔 Day #6 of #TFadvent:

Inspecting and sorting good ingredients from bad is one of the most important tasks in food processing—but that task can be time consuming and prone to error.

👉 Learn how @TensorFlow+@KewpieUSA are partnering for food quality:

#TFadvent Day #7

From the "Machine Learning for Creativity and Design" Workshop at #NeurIPS2018 tomorrow:

🖼️ SpaceSheets: a general-purpose @TensorFlowJS spreadsheet interface designed to support the experimentation and exploration of latent spaces.

#TFadvent Day #8

👩‍🔬 CASP is a virtual protein-folding Olympics, where the aim is to predict 3D structures of proteins based on genetic sequence data.

This has huge implications for health-related research (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's, etc.).

✨🧪 Last week, @DeepMindAI's AlphaFold SUMZ score of 127.99 was 20 points higher than the 2nd-ranked team - achieving what CASP called “unprecedented progress in the ability of computational methods to predict protein structure.”

👉 Read more here: medium.com/syncedreview/d…
✨👩‍🔬 "We are especially excited about how it might improve our understanding of the body and how it works, enabling scientists to design new, effective cures for diseases [like Parkinson's] more efficiently."


🧠 @DeepMindAI's #AlphaFold write-up: deepmind.com/blog/alphafold/
#TFadvent Day #9

👫 Autism impacts >1 million children in the US alone, and can make developing friendships + understanding social cues *extremely* difficult.

👉 Learn how @Stanford is using @TensorFlow to help children understand emotions in real-time: med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/…
⚕️ An additional note:

If you have a child who is between 3 - 17yo with a clinical diagnosis of ASD, and you live within driving distance to @Stanford: the research team would love to connect with you / have you join their study!

👉 Get involved here: autismglass.stanford.edu
#TFadvent #10

✨🌎 This @MDPIOpenAccess paper uses @TensorFlow Hub to classify landscapes from satellites, aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and fixed camera installations. Exciting impacts for geoscientists!


🙏 Thanks @JeremiahHarmsen for sharing!
🧠 Learn more about how you can *reuse* model components (like LEGO bricks!) for free on #TFHub: tfhub.dev

#TFHub uses transfer learning to bootstrap model creation: which means you can achieve higher accuracy with less data, minimal hardware, and in record time.
✨🌎 A friend asked about implications of this research, so am sharing the answer here, too.

❤️ There are many reasons to get excited about object segmentation applied to satellite imagery: but having the ability to create *MASSIVE* new time-series geo data sets is my favorite.
#TFadvent Day #11

@Allegorithmic announced #ProjectAlchemist at #SIGGRAPH18: a new standalone tool that combines several @TensorFlow-enabled methods for creating augmented materials.

🎬 Blog post + keynote: animationmagazine.net/technology/the…

And check out the #SubstanceAlchemist hashtag!

🍞 Kasha is often contaminated with wheat grains, which are difficult to spot and can be disastrous for folks who suffer from #celiac (est. 3 million in the US alone!).

🔍 Have you ever wanted your own, personal "ENHANCE" button? (tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.…)

You can get relatively close with #SRGAN: a generative adversarial network that gives pixelated images super-resolution.
