Synopsis: Deep learning is the new frontier for artificial intelligence. The technology simulates brain activities by using billions of training examples similar to the way neurons operate. Deep neural networks are trained with GPU cluster with tens of thousands of processor. Applications of the technology include machine vision, physics, biology, transport, IoT. This talk will mainly introduce deep learning for machine vision. The technology could be used in smart manufacturing, health care, MedTech or in sport. For example, defect detection or automatic disease diagnosis could be possible by examining machine-generated images.
