In this video from the HPC User Forum in Tucson, Steve Conway from Hyperion Research presents: The Need for Deep Learning Transparency.

“We humans don’t fully understand how humans think. When it comes to deep learning, humans also don’t understand yet how computers think. That’s a big problem when we’re entrusting our lives to self-driving vehicles or to computers that diagnose serious diseases, or to computers installed to protect national security. We need to find a way to make these “black box” computers transparent.”

Hyperion Research helps IT professionals, business executives, and the investment community make fact-based decisions on technology purchases and business strategy. Our industry experts are the former IDC high performance computing (HPC) analyst team, which remains intact and continues all of its global activities. The group is comprised of the world’s most respected HPC industry analysts who have worked together for more than 25 years.
