Strength training deep neural networks

Deep neural networks (DNNs) have grown popular with data-driven technological advances because they analyze and process incomprehensible sums of input. These systems are often swift and efficient. But given the amount of data processed, a DNN also encounters errors and slowdowns. To solve these issues, a team let by Pulkit Grover created a more efficient DNN called PolyDot coding.
