Using distributed learning to boost Watson’s Visual IQ

Quantity matters when training computers to accurately recognize what’s in an image. The more they see, the more they learn. But, training new visual recognition models from a large number of images using deep learning can quickly become a bottleneck, especially for cloud environments that use commodity hardware and GPUs. Commodity machines with an average […]
