Prof. Li profiled by WARF for invention on deep learning accelerator in the Cloud

In the ultracompetitive Wild West of AI a new generation of pioneers is emerging

Armed with the Cloud and a mission to push the limits of deep learning, Jing Li and her team of student “hackers” have bested industry titans and set a performance record.

With support from the WARF Accelerator Program, her latest project is developing a deep learning accelerator in the Cloud. The goal: faster, smarter and more energy-efficient systems for deep learning, with applications like improved speech recognition.
