NetFlix is conducting a research into computer-simulated neural networks. This research lets machines think the way a human mind would think. According to the blog post from NetFlix, the company is finding a way to train large-scale neural networks. Neural networks simulate learning process that are thought to go to the brain. This requires a neural network to be built, and trained to handle a particular workload.

NetFlix has also been experimenting in using the GPU power of public AWS cloud instances to train their neural networks. This training involves developing machine learning algorithms through hyperparameters that drive its decision parameters.
