After some more years of hiatus (even though LeCun continued applying his networks to other tasks, such as face and object recognition), the exponential growth of both available structured data, and raw processing power, allowed the teams to grow and tune the models, to an extent that could have been considered impossible, and thus the complexity of the models could be increased without the risk of waiting months for training.

Computer research teams from a number of technological firms and universities began competing on some very difficult tasks, including image recognition. For one of these challenges, the Imagenet Classification Challenge, the Alexnet architecture was developed:
