For the past year, I studied art fundamentals, learned how to draw and paint with traditional media and digital tools. As an ML engineer, I have been exploring how to use AI for art and design, which has become my focal interest. …


This year I was invited to be a mentor of the TensorFlow organization for Google Summer of Code (GSoC). During GSoC 2021, I mentored or co-mentored three students in these product areas: TensorFlow-GAN (TF-GAN), TensorFlow Model Garden & Hub, and TensorFlow Lite (TFLite). …


I passed the TensorFlow Developer Certificate exam! Here is how I studied and prepared for it. Please note I was already familiar with TensorFlow and Deep Learning prior to taking the exam, so this post is most applicable to those with similar ML knowledge and skills level.
