H2O Deep Water – Making Deep Learning Accessible to Everyone

Deep Water is H2O’s integration with multiple open source deep learning libraries such as TensorFlow, MXNet and Caffe. On top of the performance gains from GPU backends, Deep Water naturally inherits all H2O properties in scalability. ease of use and deployment. In his talk, Jo-fai will go through the motivation and benefits of Deep Water. Finishing with a demonstration of how to build and deploy deep learning models with or without programming experience using H2O’s R/Python/Flow (Web) interfaces.
