AWS re:Invent 2017: BigDL: Image Recognition Using Apache Spark with BigDL (MCL358) – #AWS
In this talk, you will learn how to use, or create Deep Learning architectures for Image Recognition and other neural network computations in Apache Spark. Alex, Tim and Sujee will begin with an introduction to Deep Learning using BigDL. Then they will explain and demonstrate how image recognition works using step by step diagrams, and code which will give you a fundamental understanding of how you can perform image recognition tasks within Apache Spark. Then, they will give a quick overview of how to perform image recognition on a much larger dataset using the Inception architecture. BigDL was created specifically for Spark and takes advantage of Spark’s ability to distribute data processing workloads across many nodes. As an attendee in this session, you will learn how to run the demos on your laptop, on your own cluster, or use the BigDL AMI in the AWS Marketplace. Either way, you walk away with a much better understanding of how to run deep learning workloads using Apache Spark with BigDL.
