Description

Google CEO Sundar Pichai asserts that while the last decade was about mobile first, the next decade will be about AI first. Within the worlds of artificial intelligence and machine learning, deep learning is where a continual stream of the most exciting advancements are being made, from self-driving cars, self-organizing drone swarms, computer vision, and conversational interfaces to advanced industrial robots, speech recognition, and emotion recognition. It is amazing AI that works today, and it is the driving force behind the current AI/ML revolution.

Deep learning will impact nearly every industry on the planet, and there will be countless opportunities to take advantage of this technology. Over the next decade, deep learning models will become common microservices within enterprises architectures. Software engineers will be expected to design, develop, and deploy deep learning microservices into production.

However, reaping the benefits of deep learning is hard to achieve. Success requires a well-considered AI strategy that accommodates business drivers, data acquisition and preparation, model architecture, algorithm selection, robust cloud infrastructure, service integration, and delivery mechanisms. Chris Benson walks you through creating a strategy for delivering deep learning into production and explores how deep learning is integrated into a modern enterprise architecture. Along the way, Chris analyzes various AI implementation strategies, the prerequisite data strategies that specific AI strategy depend upon, and the trade-offs that each approach implies, drawing on real-world examples from Honeywell, a global leader in applying artificial intelligence to advanced robotics and the internet of things.
