The most popular library for machine learning research and practice nowadays is Google’s library Tensorflow. Recently, they incorporated the high-level neural network library Keras – also one of the top performers in its field – into their distribution. With Keras, writing networks is a comfortable task, producing easy to read code and with Tensorflow, computations are rigged in a way that allows for immense automatic optimization: GPU calculations, cluster computation and parallelism are all handled transparently to the user.

Join us at NYC Resistor to build a personalized subway countdown clock. This class will introduce the basics of Arduino, electronics, and other important concepts you’ll need to join in on the Internet of Things (IoT). We’ll use a WiFI connected Arduino microcontroller to pull down real time subway data and display it to a LCD/LED character display. Never be late for a subway again**!

NYC Resistor will be participating in Gowanus Open Studios 2019 on October 19th & 20th from 12 pm to 6 pm each day.
Come by our space to see projects made by NYC Resistor members and public craft night attendees. We want to show examples of the creative projects that our makerspace tools and resources help bring to life.
This event will also be a good opportunity to learn about our space and ways we can help you explore your own creativity. Members will be on hand to give tours and talk about the classes, activities and resources we offer regularly throughout the year.
Call for makers: If you’ve made stuff at Resistor and you are interested in sharing to represent our community, send an email to email@example.com
Gowanus Open Studios is the annual event where 400+ artists in the Gowanus area open their doors to share their creative spaces and art with the general public. Wander around the neighborhood to see a wide variety of local art and to chat with artists about their work.
