 Title: Distributed Deep Learning using MXNet on AWS
 Deep learning is the state of the art in domains such as computer  vision and natural language understanding. MXNet is an open-source  framework developed through collaboration and contributions of  researchers at several top universities. It is now the recommended deep  learning package at AWS due to its programmability, portability, and  efficiency.  It is suitable for deployment from multiple GPUs and  multiple machines to embedded systems such as smart phones and embedded 
 GPUs.   This talk will cover how MXNet helps developers in machine 
 learning as well as how you can quickly start using it by leveraging  preconfigured Deep Learning AMIs (Amazon Machine Images) and  CloudFormation Templates on AWS.  The talk will cover use cases in  computer vision and natural language processing.
