Facebook Puts Deep Learning in the Palm of Your Hand

Facebook has built a simple-looking video tool to show off a sophisticated use of artificial intelligence on cell phones. During an event at its office fb in Menlo Park, Calif., last Friday afternoon, Facebook CTO Mike Schroepfer showed off software that takes a live Facebook video feed from a cell phone and converts the image in real time into a selection of artistic styles, such as that of Van Gogh. It might sound like a simple filter, but usually an algorithm of this nature would need to send that type of information back to a server in a data center to process the pixels on more powerful machines. The Facebook crew crafted a less power-hungry and computing-intensive deep learning system they call “Caffe2Go,” that uses the computing power in a…
