Algorithmia aims to democratize deep learning with expansion of its marketplace for algorithms

An application using deep learning applied color to this monochrome image based on what it “knows” of how colors appear in the world. (Via Algorithmia) Deep learning — attempts to make software mimic the functions of the human brain — is one of the most conceptually difficult areas of computing, requiring programmers with highly specialized training. But Seattle-based startup Algorithmia is aiming to make deep-learning algorithms from the foremost researchers accessible to anyone wanting to harness the technology.Algorithmia CEO Diego Oppenheimer Algorithmia today is adding 15 deep-learning algorithms to its marketplace of roughly 2,000 callable APIs of all kinds, said Diego Oppenheimer, Algorithmia’s founder and CEO. Algorithms are sets of rules or procedures used to solve a computing problem. Companies building apps might use the deep-learning algorithms to identify faces in a crowd, detect nudity or gore…
