Recommended Reading: Deep Learning Hardware

Recently our engineers found a useful article they felt worth sharing; A Full Hardware Guide to Deep Learning by Tim Dettmers.

“Deep Learning is very computationally intensive, so you will need a fast CPU with many cores, right? Or is it maybe wasteful to buy a fast CPU? One of the worst things you can do when building a deep learning system is to waste money on hardware that is unnecessary. Here I will guide you step by step through the hardware you will need for a cheap high-performance system.

Over the years, I built a total of 7 different deep learning workstations and despite careful research and reasoning, I made my fair share of mistake in selecting hardware parts. In this guide, I want to share my experience that I gained over the years so that you do not make the same mistakes that I did before.”

Drone Demo Event Recap by BBL Ventures

Earlier this year the NT Robotics team went to Houston to present our drone at the BBL Labs Energy Tech Accelerator Launch Party & Drone Demo.

Good memories: The demo went fantastically well. The drone took off, flew over and around obstacles, returned to the starting point and landed”. Enjoy watching.

BBL Ventures did a very cool video recap of the event.

NTR Lab @ Code Fest X in Siberia

Last week NTR’s developers went to Code Fest X, one of the greatest developers gathering in Russia beyond the Urals. It took place in Novosibirsk, the capital city of Siberia. Three thousand developers in one place. That’s a lot of developers! It is the conference everyone in the IT sphere knows as the best conference in our area to attend. It was really useful and worth the time/cost, so we decided to share. We bought live streaming video  of the conference, so the rest of our Tomsk office could watch it.

After the conference we had a Skype meeting to share impressions and experiences. We asked our developers: what have you learned, how can you use it, which speaker’s experience you found useful, what would like to implement?
