About DeepInfer

DeepInfer is a deep learning deployment toolkit and a model registry for medical data analysis with advanced AI tools. DeepInfer is an open-source toolkit for deploying deep learning models that are designed specifically for medical data analysis and processing. DeepInfer allows clinical researchers and biomedical engineers to deploy pre-trained deep learning models and use task-specific deep models, without the need for further software development and configuration. DeepInfer promotes reproducible research and dissimination of knowledge aquired with data-driven tools.
