Learn about neon™ with the Nervana Deep Learning Course

Intel Nervana is excited to share a series of short Nervana videos and accompanying exercises to learn how to build deep learning models with neon, our deep learning framework. We start with a basic introduction into deep learning concepts, provide an overview of the neon framework, and discuss key neon concepts such as loading data…

Intel®'s reference deep learning framework committed to best performance on all hardware

Get started

Powerful Simplicity

The simplicity of neon’s Python-like syntax makes it an extraordinarily powerful, out-of-the-box tool for anyone from the novice, to the experienced scientist.

Best Performance

Assembler-level optimization, multi-GPU support, optimized data-loading, and the Winograd algorithm all add-up to stellar performance.

Enlightening Visuals

neon’s nviz utility helps you track progress and better understand the deep learning process with inspired visuals and histograms.

Model Zoo

neon™ comes with its own Model Zoo featuring pre-trained weights and example scripts for state-of-the-art models—the ones you see below are just a few.
