What is TensorFlow?

TensorFlow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional data arrays (tensors) communicated between them. The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API.
TensorFlow is a tool in the Machine Learning Tools category of a tech stack.
TensorFlow is an open source tool with 162.1K GitHub stars and 86.2K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to TensorFlow's open source repository on GitHub

Who uses TensorFlow?

464 companies reportedly use TensorFlow in their tech stacks, including Uber, Delivery Hero, and Hepsiburada.

2197 developers on StackShare have stated that they use TensorFlow.

TensorFlow Integrations

JavaScript, Jupyter, Keras, Databricks, and Kubeflow are some of the popular tools that integrate with TensorFlow. Here's a list of all 47 tools that integrate with TensorFlow.

Decisions about TensorFlow

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose TensorFlow in their tech stack.

I am going to send my website to a Venture Capitalist for inspection. If I succeed, I will get funding for my StartUp! This website is based on Django and Uses Keras and TensorFlow model to predict medical imaging. Should I use Heroku or PythonAnywhere to deploy my website ?? Best Regards, Adarsh.

Hello All, I have concerns about which framework to use in my case. I'm working on a project that uses TensorFlow for implementing CNN and image processing, it also deals with a huge dataset. Shall I implement the rest APIs in Phalcon because of its speed and great performance or Falcon since I'm working with TensorFlow and doing image processing steps?

PS: APIs are to receive the image from the user, and call *.py files to execute image processing steps and CNN Thanks In Advance :D

I am working on a data collection project which requires processing images of playing cards for a deck-building game called StarRealms (https://www.starrealms.com/). I need to be able to read in a database of images or videos and recognize each card as a game is played. I believe this would involve some computer vision for image recognition and TensorFlow modeling to ensure an accurate prediction. Which technology stack would be the best for this job? Thank you for the help!

Need your kind suggestion if I should choose TensorFlow.js or TensorFlow with Python for ML models. As I don't want to go and have not gone too deep in JavaScript, I need your suggestion.

I am trying to get started with using TensorFlow. I have a few projects that mainly focus on image classifiers in mind but I have a question on a project that I'm trying to possibly do. The problem that I am hoping to solve is to find the orientation of an object. I was wondering if I have an object such as a cylinder and the problem is to find the orientation to insert into a machine via an arm. I am working with others who are more familiar with python but I don't know if TensorFlow would have the capabilities for my project. I think it would be able to identify the object but a solution I ponder is if it would be possible to run one image classifier to find and box the cylinder and another to find the orientation since the input would be the boxed image, and then to find a rudimentary orientation based off of many pictures with them at various angles. Or if this level is too complicated to run accurately with reasonable speeds. Possibly there is a much simpler solution or is a very hard problem. Though I thought I would ask to see if there is something else that would better suit my needs before taking the time to learn TensorFlow and try to make it only to be told it won't work.

TensorFlow Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to TensorFlow?
Theano is a Python library that lets you to define, optimize, and evaluate mathematical expressions, especially ones with multi-dimensional arrays (numpy.ndarray).
PyTorch is not a Python binding into a monolothic C++ framework. It is built to be deeply integrated into Python. You can use it naturally like you would use numpy / scipy / scikit-learn etc.
OpenCV was designed for computational efficiency and with a strong focus on real-time applications. Written in optimized C/C++, the library can take advantage of multi-core processing. Enabled with OpenCL, it can take advantage of the hardware acceleration of the underlying heterogeneous compute platform.
Deep Learning library for Python. Convnets, recurrent neural networks, and more. Runs on TensorFlow or Theano. https://keras.io/
Apache Spark
Spark is a fast and general processing engine compatible with Hadoop data. It can run in Hadoop clusters through YARN or Spark's standalone mode, and it can process data in HDFS, HBase, Cassandra, Hive, and any Hadoop InputFormat. It is designed to perform both batch processing (similar to MapReduce) and new workloads like streaming, interactive queries, and machine learning.
