George Mandis


Self-Portraits in JavaScript

In this talk we'll explore three different approaches to facial recognition in the browser to help us ""draw"" a self-portrait using JavaScript. We'll explore appraoches that run entirely on the client-side using TensorFlow.js & other libraries, via web-based services (AWS, Googel Cloud & Azure) and using the new, experimental Shape Detection API.

We'll explore what it's like to work with each approach and what the advantages and trade-offs are. Finally, we'll discuss long-term security implications and ramificiations we should consider as we introduce ourselves to basic machine-learning concepts through this creative exploration.
