Deep learning is a machine learning technique used to solve complex problems related to image recognition, natural language processing, and more. It requires both massive amounts of data and computational power.  The compute problem has been solved largely by GPUs, which have become essential for...

Deep Learning is at the cutting edge of what machines can do, and developers and business leaders absolutely need to understand what it is and how it works. This unique type of algorithm has far surpassed any previous benchmarks for classification of images, text, and voice. It also powers some of the...

When we created the Colorize It demo, we were just trying to show off how Algorithmia can now host and distribute trained deep learning models that use GPUs in the cloud. As it turns out, a lot of people are interested in colorizing black and white photos. Our colorization microservice ended...

If you’ve ever worked with deep learning frameworks you know they require a good amount of time, knowledge and, most of all, commitment just to get them up and running on your machine. And, that’s before you’ve even built your model or trained your data. This assumes you have a GPU-enabled...
