Why deep learning on a data and AI platform?

With advancements in compute, algorithm and data access, enterprises are adopting deep learning more widely to extract and scale insight through speech recognition, natural language processing and image classification. Deep learning can interpret text, images, audio and video at scale, generating patterns for recommendation engines, sentiment analysis, financial risk modeling and anomaly detection. 
High computational power has been required to process neural networks due to the number of layers and the volumes of data to train the networks. Furthermore, businesses are struggling to show results from deep learning experiments implemented in silos. IBM Machine Learning Accelerator, a deep learning capability in IBM Watson Studio on IBM Cloud Pak® for Data, helps a business:

-   Scale compute, people and apps dynamically across any cloud.
-   Manage and unify large data sets and models with transparency and visibility.
-   Adapt models continuously with real-time data from edge to hybrid clouds.
-   Optimize cloud and AI investments with faster training and inference.
