Cortexica had the first commercial implementation of a deep convolutional network in a GPU back in 2010. Since then, computer vision has dramatically changed—as has the world surrounding deep learning. Nevertheless, in the real world, running a CNN is not always a possibility. Eduard Vazquez discusses current challenges that commercial applications based on this technology are facing and how some of them can be tackled.
