The AI features of Moments are compelling, however as I have an image library of over 200,000 photos, the processing may take forever. Is there a way to outsource some of the AI compute to the cloud or to another PC on the network? The Synology unit is great (DS1512+) but these Celeron / Atom processors are just not designed for this type of workload. Aside from buying a new NAS, does anyone have any ideas to speed up the work?

200K. You’ll need a [email protected] for this one :)
I don’t think there’s a way to delegate/offload the task. I also don’t think a new NAS (Synology DS at least) will make a big difference.

In my experience what you need is something that makes time change. I distinctly remember my university maths for engineers lectures seemed to last for hours but outside only one hour had elapsed. If you put he NAS in a lecture theatre I'm sure it'll be finished in no time*.

*Don't attend the lectures yourself!

Damn! This a “why didn’t I think of that” moment.
May the data be with you @fredbert :)
