Government customers are increasingly wanting to adopt AI and Deep Learning to help their agency's missions. This session will focus on the evolving industry trends in AI/DL and how IBM is answering the call for high performance, easy to install deep learning frameworks. The framework helps to simplify acquisition, installation, and system optimization, as well as to provide a comprehensive set of ML/DL development tools on top of one of the fastest platforms for deep learning training and model development. We will also present a customer use case, a look towards the future, and a demo of the system.
