Building a Platform for Machine Intelligence
Amir Khosrowshahi, PhD
Deep learning is now state-of-the-art across a wide variety of machine learning domains including speech, video, and text. Nervana is a startup providing deep learning as a platform. Nervana’s core technology is a novel processor architecture for deep learning providing an enabling increase in speed, scale, and efficiency. I will talk about some of our engineering and early efforts in working on machine learning problems with academia and businesses.
