Would you like to preview a new programming exercise the TensorFlow team is developing? 

Come to this 60 minute workshop to experiment with a Recurrent Neural Network to generate paint colors. We'll give a short talk (say, 10 mins) to introduce the exercise, then you'll dive in with your laptop.

Please bring a laptop with TensorFlow version 1.2 or higher installed, and run through the "Beginning MNIST" sample on tensorflow.org (http://tensorflow.org/) to make sure everything is working ahead of time. We'll be around afterwards to answer any questions you might have as well. Thanks!
