No one has time to search, install, and set up the environment for running deep learning (DL) workloads optimally. Intel collaborated with major CSPs and OEM partners to include preconfigured optimized DL environments, allowing data scientists and deep learning practitioners to instantly have access to Intel-optimized DL environments. This will get you started to quickly set up Intel-optimized AI environments for your workloads, be it in the cloud or in your data center.

Ravi Panchumarthy walks you through launching preconfigured virtual machines with Intel-optimized deep learning frameworks in the cloud (AWS, Azure, and GCP), running TensorFlow convolutional neural network (CNN) benchmarks; and the technical details of Intel-optimized solutions to accelerate deployment to the data center via OEM partners (Dell, Lenovo, HPE, and Inspur).
