  • Google is using it’s in-house machine learning framework, TensorFlow, to help train additional spam filters for Gmail users
  • With the new filters in place as of last month, the company claims Gmail is now blocking an extra 100 million spam messages every day
  • Gmail has over 1 billion-plus users now and says Gmail blocks 99.9 percent of spam
  • TensorFlow was launched by Google in 2015, and it has become an incredibly important part of its AI business
  • It’s a free machine learning framework that allows developers to create AI tools for a huge range of tasks, provides flexibility and capacity to scale, and, of course, it works seamlessly with Google’s other AI services, encouraging users to buy computing power from Google as well as off-the-shelf vision and speech algorithms.
