During the session, MemSQL will showcase how to make the most of digital imagery in real-time as well as discuss how to architect integrations with popular machine learning frameworks like TensorFlow and its ability to take advantage of GPUs.

The session will also cover:

  • Architectural considerations in building an image recognition pipeline
  • Advantages and pitfalls of specific approaches
  • Real-time capabilities for instant matches
  • Use of a fast relational datastore to persist data from Spark
