IBM is trying to remove some of the complications related to image recognition with new tools to automate critical machine learning tasks.
A major update of the company’s PowerAI tools has a feature called AI Vision, an auto tuner that makes it easy to identify and classify pictures. It will also speed up image recognition by breaking down tasks over multiple clusters.
AI Vision plays a big role in automating machine learning by creating a tuned model, said Sumit Gupta, vice president of machine learning.
The software abstracts machine learning, and developers don’t need knowledge of low-level access to frameworks to tune, train, and deploy image recognition models. It’s much like programming a game to take advantage of GPUs without deep knowledge of low-level APIs.
