WebGL helps machine learning comes to your browser

There’s now a JavaScript library for executing neural networks inside a webpage, using the hardware-accelerated graphics API available in modern web browsers. Developed by a team of MIT graduate students, TensorFire can run TensorFlow-style machine learning models on any GPU. TensorFire works using the WebGL standard, a cross-platform system for rendering GPU-accelerated graphics in browsers. WebGL supports GLSL, a C-like language used to write shaders, which are short programs used to transform data directly on the GPU.
