- Better algorithms. Research is constantly coming up with better ways to train models and machines.
- Better GPUs. The same chips that make graphics come alive on your screen are used to train models, and these chips are improving rapidly.
- More data. The Internet and humanity’s use of it has produced a massive data set to train machines with.
- Cloud services. Companies, such as our portfolio company Clarifai, are now offering cloud based services to developers which allow them to access artificial intelligence “as a service” instead of having to “roll your own”.
