TensorFlow Machine Learning is now Available
Teams participating in the FIRST® Tech Challenge can now use Google’s TensorFlow Machine Learning technology to detect and track Gold and Silver game elements. Teams can access Google’s TensorFlow technology through Blocks or Java programming. TensorFlow can identify Gold and Silver game elements using either the built in camera on an Android device or through an externally connected camera.

Ken Johnson, Director of FIRST Tech Challenge, dives into why FIRST Tech Challenge is awesome, and why it’s important to help people understand what we’re all about. “FIRST Tech Challenge is one of the only teams you can start where every single participant can ‘go pro’ at competitive salaries – all while making the world a better place. That’s what I’d tell them”. – Read more on our blog!
