Power of the web meets power of ML
Although most designers and developers today put so much focus on developing apps, the web is still an incredibly powerful medium. It’s cross-platform, and works with all kinds of different devices, from mobile and tablet to desktop, and across different OS (Android, iOS and Mac, Windows, etc.), with just one URL. Unlike apps, there’s no need to download and install, and it doesn’t require complex configurations. With the web, users are just one tap away from diving into your experience. And, of course, web-based content and experiences are really easy to share.
Today, people crave quick, fun experiences; combining the power of the web with ML allows for powerful new interactions utilizing a device’s own sensors.
Using a device’s camera for image recognition is just one example. Using the Generic Sensor API, web developers can now access a range of device sensors including the accelerometer, microphone, and GPS. By combining device sensors with in-browser ML, you can imagine and design any number of new interactions.
