The coordinator of AIHub Tampere, Ritva Savonsaari, writes “What eventually enabled the rise of neural networks was the emerging cloud computing technology. The new, scalable data management systems created a sharp rise in the neural network capacity. The networks grew larger, more layers were built, and the idea of convolution was introduced. The number of neurons suddenly expanded from thousands to millions. This was the era of major steps in advancing the new technology”. Read the full blog here.
