I have an average laptop.

How can I connect specialized AI neural network processors (say, Intel Nvidia or Intel Nervana https://venturebeat.com/2018/05/23/intel-unveils-nervana-neural-net-l-1000-for-accelerated-ai-training/) to thelaptop. Should I buy some external motherboard or even server unit with NN processors inside or is there available more lightweight solution like external HDD?

    $\begingroup$ are you interested in training or inference? $\endgroup$ – firion Sep 10 '18 at 8:14
  • $\begingroup$ I am interested in both training and inference, but I guess that initially could be good to set up at least one process. I guess, that training is the resource consuming process for which the processors are designed, inference can be done with the ordinary processor. $\endgroup$ – TomR Sep 10 '18 at 8:25

Check of deep learning box on the internet. You will have to think hard in order to make a good and cost effective one.

But there are a few people who have made one of their own and shared their experiences.

Here are some medium articles:
