From smartphones to Spectacles, computing has pushed limits and now there is a mandatory need for digital image processing. Additionally, new computing models have rapidly emerged to help data engineers harness the power of this imagery, and vast resources associated with cloud platforms have moved the industry forward quickly.

During the session, MemSQL will showcase how to make the most of digital imagery in real-time as well as discuss how to architect integrations with popular machine learning frameworks like TensorFlow and its ability to take advantage of GPUs.

The session will also cover:

  • Architectural considerations in building an image recognition pipeline
  • Advantages and pitfalls of specific approaches
  • Real-time capabilities for instant matches
  • Use of a fast relational datastore to persist data from Spark

To learn more, check out Nikita’s session on Wednesday, June 7 from 2:40 p.m. to 3:10 p.m. in Room 2022 or visit us at Kiosk 7 in the Expo Hall at Moscone West, in San Francisco.
