About this event

In November we have a talk on AutoML a way to do machine learning without any coding and Speech Synthesis with Tensorflow and Wavenet ! 🤖

17:45 - 18:10 - Food and Drinks are served, get comfy and prepare yourself to learn some new things!

18:10 - 18:15 - Welcome to GDG!

18:15 - 18:40 - AutoML FTW - Peter-John Welcome

This will be an introduction to a Google Cloud Product called AutoML. This products gives people the ability to create custom machine learning models without any coding or coding experience.

We will look at what AutoML has to offer and some examples of how it could be useful.

18:40 - 18:45 - Small Breather

18:45 - 19:30 - Speech Synthesis with Tensorflow and Wavenet - Vusi Moyo

A brief intro to how speech is generated using a machine learning library like Tensorflow, with reference to Wavenet. From preparing your model data to training, then generating some samples.

I will also show how to get that model to work with TFLite for Android for your own sample voice synthesis app.

19:30 - 19:45 - Giveaways and Thanks!
