While Google, Microsoft and Apple have been making significant product breakthroughs using deep neural networks (DNN), the question remains: Is using DNN a practical approach for companies that are not web giants? For some, the answer is a resounding “yes.” AlchemyAPI, a natural language processing platform, has developed the ability to train very large and deep neural networks efficiently while remaining cost effective.

“In the area of language modeling, for example, we are able to train on huge amounts of data (a hundred billion words or more) in less than 24 hours whereas in the research community, many groups are spending 4-6 weeks to train a system on fewer than a billion words,” according to Elliot Turner, AlchemyAPI Founder and CEO.
