I had a lot of fun working with the marketing team for the institute to explain the master’s program from the view of an international student. It is not apparent from a short clip, but there were many hours of raw footage required to produce each minute of video. I happened to be experimenting that day with mapping images to a Hilbert curve space to see if it improved classification of digits using a neural network.

Optimizing deep learning model performance is computationally expensive, so I was pleased to discover that there are TensorFlow builds which are optimized for CPU systems (like my MacBook Pro). The benchmarks are impressive, and while this will likely not be the option for everyone, it is worth considering if your cloud setup is primarily using Xeon CPUs rather than GPUs.
