Introducing Our AWS AMI and DeepFilter Training Pipeline

There’s been a lot of talk about style transfer lately. Google’s Supercharging Style Transfer research and Facebook’s video style transfer demo are just two examples.

At Algorithmia, we believe in democratizing access to state of the algorithms. That's why we’re excited to provide an AWS AMI and...

Here's 50,000 credits
on us.

Algorithmia AI Cloud is built to scale. You write the code and compose the workflow. We take care of the rest.
