According to a recent press release, “Baidu, Inc. today announced the product launch of EZDL, a no-code platform to build custom machine learning models. Geared towards small and medium businesses, it is gradually breaking down the barrier to allow everyone to access AI in the most convenient and equitable way… ‘EZDL is a service platform that allows users to build custom machine learning models with a drag-and-drop interface. It takes only four steps to train a deep learning model, built specifically for your unique business needs,’ said Yongkang Xie, Tech Lead of Baidu EZDL . ‘Even if you have had no exposure to programming, you can quickly build models on this platform with zero barriers. EZDL can help companies with limited AI experts and computing resources to quickly and efficiently complete deep learning training and deployment with only a small amount of data’.”
