An elastic deployment of Stable Diffusion with Discord on AWS

Stable Diffusion is a state-of-the-art text-to-image model that generates images from text. Deploying text-to-image models such as Stable Diffusion can be difficult. Currently, Stable Diffusion requires specific computer hardware known as graphical processing units (GPUs). You can lower the bar to entry by offloading the text-to-image generation onto Amazon Web Services (AWS). Discord is a […]

Applying Federated Learning for ML at the Edge

Federated Learning (FL) is an emerging approach to machine learning (ML) where model training data is not stored in a central location. During ML training, we typically need to access the entire training dataset on a single machine. For purposes of performance scaling, we divide the training data between multiple CPUs, multiple GPUs, or a […]
