neon™ 2.6.0: Inference Optimizations for Single Shot MultiBox Detector on Intel® Xeon® Processor Architectures

We are excited to release the neon™ 2.6.0 framework, which features improvements for CPU inference path on a VGG-16 based Single Shot multibox Detector (SSD) neural network. These updates, along with the training optimizations released in neon 2.5.0, show that neon is gaining significant boosts in both training and inference performance.  (Granular configuration details, as well…
