The ability to train the task specific deep learning models is very easy these
days, with the wide range of available libraries and documentation around it. But,
the difficulty lies in bringing it to production ready mode. Especially, if the
application concentrates on Mobile platform.
Though there are existing wrappers of certain libraries to make them work, but,
as of now, they are slow and use up almost the entire memory space of the
In this talk, I would like to explain, what can be done to make things faster and
how to make models with reduced size. The aim of this talk is to provide insights
on what would be the difficulties which lie ahead and how to build your own
libraries in both iOS and Android.

Speaker bio

I am a member of the data science team at
Semantics3 - building data-powered software for ecommerce-focused companies. Over the years, I have had the chance to work on various aspects of Deep Learning, one such scenario was running the models
on mobile. We made an app named Flo, which got featured by Apple on their
twitter page for using AI and their framework to make it run faster.

    Progressively, devices will endeavor to optimize machine learning models and frameworks for the accessible equipment, however huge numbers of those instruments originate from equipment sellers like dissertation proposal help and Intel as opposed to being cross-platform.
