Deep Learning and PowerAI Development

Develop the next generation of applications

Bring more value to your organization’s data by developing with an entirely new approach to problems: deep learning, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Unlock hidden potential and patterns in data organically — without you having to know the patterns, networks, or be an algorithmic expert. IBM is making deep learning easier and more performant for you with an enterprise software distribution of the most popular open-frameworks, in PowerAI.

Deep Learning consists of algorithms that permit software to train itself— by exposing multilayered neural networks to vast amounts of data. It is most frequently used to perform tasks like speech and image recognition.

The intelligence in the process sits within the deep learning software frameworks themselves— which develop that neural model of understanding by building weights and connections between many, many data points— often millions in a training data set.

Deep learning thrives when other traditional techniques to solving your problem fail: where you want derive insightful or complex relationships from vast data, custom programming is impossible, or on visual or auditory data.

PowerAI Vision Features

IBM PowerAI Vision provides tools and interfaces for business analysts, subject matter experts and developers without any skills in deep learning technologies to begin using deep learning. The tools assist users to focus on rapidly identifying datasets and labeling them. They can then train and validate a model in a GUI interface to build customized solutions for image classification and object detection.

As a user of deep learning, PowerAI Vision allows you to implement more simply and realize value from your models faster.
