Efficient Deep Learning Training on the Cloud with Small Files

Here I describe an approach to efficiently train deep learning models on machine learning cloud platforms (e.g., IBM Watson Machine Learning) when the training dataset consists of a large number of small files (e.g., JPEG format) and is stored in an object store like IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS). As an example, I train a […]

TRAPPIST-1: Interplanetary Listening With IBM Cloud

TRAPPIST-1 is a planetary system located 12 parsecs (39 light years) away from the Solar system, near the ecliptic, within the constellation of Aquarius. Around a star which is 12 times smaller than the Sun and only slightly larger than Jupiter, there are at least seven planets in orbit. The first interplanetary listening observation made […]
