Convolutional Neural Network

In deep learning, a convolutional neural network (CNN) is a type of artificial neural network commonly used for processing and analyzing visual imagery recognition.
A
The Automated Neural Architecture Construction (AutoNAC) technology is an algorithmic optimization engine that squeezes maximum utilization out of any hardware. It contains a Neural Architecture Search (NAS) component that redesigns...
A
AutoML (Automated Machine Learning) makes machine learning available and accessible by automating machine learning. It automates the standard (manual) machine learning process with off-the-shelf methods. AutoML shortens the process of pre-processing...
B
When you use a model ‘off the shelf,’ it generally comes with a suggested training recipe. The thing is, these models are usually trained on very powerful GPUs, which may...
C
In deep learning, a convolutional neural network (CNN) is a type of artificial neural network commonly used for processing and analyzing visual imagery recognition. Compared with traditional neural networks, CNNs...
D
Data-aware model development is an approach to deep learning development that takes into account the training data, along with the baseline model and target inference hardware. Using AutoNAC, the final...
D
Deep learning inference is the phase in development where the capabilities learned during training is put to work. The trained deep neural networks (DNN) make predictions (or inferences) on new...
D
Deep learning inference acceleration is the end-to-end process of accelerating the inference of neural models while preserving the baseline accuracy. It is fully aware of the desired target inference hardware...
D
In deep learning development, the inference stack is a set of components that influence inference computation and performance. Also called the acceleration stack, it can be divided into three different...
D
Deep Neural Network (DNN), also called Deep Nets, is a neural network with a certain level of complexity. It can be considered as stacked neural networks, or networks composed of...
E
The deep learning efficient frontier is the curve that determines what is the best accuracy one can achieve given a specific latency, or vice versa. In other words, it is...
