    AI + JS: Building “Not Hotdog” with React Native

    The HBO show Silicon Valley released a real AI app that identifies hotdogs — and not hotdogs — like the one shown on season 4’s 4th episode. To achieve this, we designed a bespoke neural architecture that runs directly on your phone, and trained it with Tensorflow, Keras & Nvidia GPUs. We wrapped it all up in a React Native app, available for both iOS & Android. In this talk, we’ll talk about how it all happened, quickly discuss other ways to build AI applications with JavaScript, and answer all your hotdog questions.
