Purpose-built neural networks for bigger efficiency gains
Neural networks can be categorised as a set of algorithms modelled loosely after the human brain that can ‘learn’ by incorporating new data. Indeed, many benefits can be derived from developing purpose-built ‘computationally efficient’ neural network models. However, to ensure your model is effective, there are several key requirements that need to be considered. Quenton Hall, AI System Architect for Industrial, Vision, He...
