Deep learning has usually been accessible to only the largest organizations, but that’s starting to change. On Monday, an AI startup called Nervana launched a cloud offering for what it calls deep learning on demand.
Nervana claims to be more than 10 times faster than any other cloud AI platform. The services allow scientists to quickly build, train and deploy deep-learning technologies for internal data. Potential applications include reducing credit card fraud, increasing the accuracy of medical diagnoses, building intelligent cars and efficient energy exploration.
