AI and deep learning are about to change the manufacturing industry by boosting capacity, increasing efficiency, and reducing costs and inventory. We'll share how Foxconn Interconnect Technology, a professional parts and components company, developed an industrial inspection application in-house and show how to leverage NVIDIA SDKs to accelerate the overall develop and deployment process.
Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have achieved an impressive suite of results on image classification. Industry adoption, for instance by Alibaba, also indicates bright prospects. In this talk we will present several methods to optimize and accelerate GPU implementation of Convolutional Neural Networks. An optimized implementation is given as an example which has smaller memory footprints and performs 1.4 to 3 times faster than Caffe.
