Sony’s AI Tools and Distributed Learning Technology That Achieves Overwhelming Development Efficiency


Improvement of development efficiency, and human resource training are urgent challenges in AI area which is rapidly spreading applications and use case due to its high performance and versatility. In this session, we introduce our latest Deep Learning development environment "Neural Network Libraries / Console" which has realized high development efficiency and more than 1000 Deep Learning talents training. And we also introduce our latest distributed training technology which can complete ImageNet/ResNet-50 training within 122 seconds, which was previously consuming about 4 days  by single GPU.
