Inference and training
GPU accelerated via WebGL
API mimics Tensorflow and NumPy

Here’s the announcement:


I think this is incredibly cool. It’s funny how Javascript eventually takes over everything. Maybe deep learning isn’t as immune as we thought.

One thing about DL in the browser I’m struggling to figure out is what are the useful projects/applications this allows that isn’t possible with server-side code or mobile deployments?
