Scalable End-to-End Deep Learning on Apache Spark™ and Databricks



Deep Learning has shown tremendous success, yet it often requires a lot of effort to leverage its power. Existing Deep Learning frameworks require writing a lot of code to work with a model, let alone in a distributed manner. In this webinar we walk through how to train and use TensorFlow-based deep learning models at scale using Spark and Databricks.
