FPGAs Speed Machine Learning at SC16 Intel Discovery Zone

In this video from SC16, Intel demonstrates how Altera FPGAs can accelerate Machine Learning applications with greater power efficiency. “The demo was put together using OpenCL design tools and then compiled to FPGA. From an end-user perspective, they tied it together using Intel MKL-DNN with CAFFE on top of that. This week, Intel announced the DLIA Deep Learning Inference Accelerator that brings the whole solution together in a box.”

Performance Optimization of Deep Learning Frameworks on Modern Intel Architectures

In this video from the Intel HPC Developer Conference, Elmoustapha Ould-ahmed-vall from Intel describes how the company is doubling down to optimize Machine Learning frameworks for Intel Platforms. Using open source frameworks as a starting point, surprising speedups are possible using Intel technologies.
