When executing inference operations, developers need an efficient way to integrate components that deliver great performance at scale while providing a simple interface between the application and execution engine.

So far, TensorFlow* Serving has been the serving system of choice. But, with it come challenges including its lack of cross-architecture inference execution on GPUs, VPUs, and FPGAs.

The 2021.1 release of the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit solves these challenges with its improved Model Server, a Docker* container capable of hosting machine-learning models for high-performance inference.

Join principal engineer and AI solution architect, Adam Marek and AI developer tools product manager, Zoe Cayetano to learn about this serving system for production environments, including how to:

  • More easily deploy new algorithms and AI experiments for your AI models
  • Take advantage of a write-once, deploy-anywhere programming paradigm, from edge to cloud
  • Use Docker containers to simplify the integration of AI inference with a wide range of platforms and solutions

Get the Software

  • Download the OpenVINO™ toolkit—includes nearly 20 developer tools and libraries for creating cross-architecture applications.
  • Sign up for an Intel® DevCloud for oneAPI account—a free development sandbox with access to the latest Intel® hardware and oneAPI software.
