World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Workshop Report on Web and Machine Learning
From the World Wide Web Consortium:
This report contains a brief summary and collects highlights from the individual sessions, and links to the presentation videos. This first-ever virtual W3C workshop kicked off with the publication of 34 talks in August 2020 discussing opportunities and challenges of browser-based machine learning, web platform foundations, as well as developer’s, and user’s perspectives into machine learning technologies in the context of the web platform.
The workshop participants identified as a prime standardization opportunity the low-level primitives for machine learning inference exposed through the Web Neural Network API. This work has been incubated at a W3C Community Group since late 2018. Following the workshop, as a concrete next step, the W3C sent an advance notice of the development of a charter for a Web Machine Learning Working Group to standardize the Web Neural Network API.
