Cray Inc. announced the results of a deep learning collaboration between Cray, Microsoft, and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) that expands the horizons of running deep learning algorithms at scale using the power of Cray supercomputers. Running larger deep learning models is a path to new scientific possibilities, but conventional systems and architectures limit the problems that can be addressed, as models take too long to train. Cray worked with Microsoft and CSCS, a world-class scientific computing center, to leverage their decades of high performance computing expertise to profoundly scale the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit.
Bright Computing, a leading provider of vendor-independent cluster and cloud management software, announced its Bright for Deep Learning solution. Bright for Deep Learning makes it faster and easier for organizations to use deep learning techniques in their businesses. The Bright for Deep Learning solution, available on Bright Cluster Manager Version 7.3, provides a choice of machine learning frameworks to simplify deep learning projects, including Caffe, Torch, TensorFlow, and Theano.
One Stop Systems, Inc. (OSS), a leader in PCI Express® (PCIe®) expansion technology, introduces two new deep learning appliances, OSS-PASCAL4 and OSS-PASCAL8. The OSS-PASCAL8 is a 170 TeraFLOP engine with 80GB/s NVIDIA® NVLink™ for the largest deep learning models.
I don’t usually get excited about a new book for the field in which I’ve been deeply involved for quite a long time, but a timely and useful new resource just came out that provided me much anticipation. “Deep Learning” by three experts in the field – Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio, and Aaron Courville is destined to considered the AI-bible moving forward.
Data science pioneer DataRobot announced the latest version of their enterprise machine learning platform. The new release integrates the powerful TensorFlow™ library for deep learning along with new tools to help users extract insights from all models on the platform. The release also updates DataRobot Prime, a premium add-on that allows users to export scoring code and operationalize models in any environment.
In this video from the Intel HPC Developer Conference, Noah Rosenberg and Karl Stiefvater from Pikazo describe the company’s innovative Pikazo App for smartphones. “Pikazo was developed in 2015 using neural style transfer algorithms. It is a collaboration between human, machine, and our concept of art. It is a universal art machine that paints any image in the style of any other, producing sometimes-beautiful, sometimes-disturbing, always-surprising artworks. Pikazo allows novice artists to create impressive imagery via a technique known as neural style transfer.”
Intel Corporation announced a range of new products, technologies and investments from the edge to the data center to help expand and accelerate the growth of artificial intelligence (AI).
Supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (Nasdaq: CRAY) announced the Company has unveiled new deep learning capabilities across its line of supercomputing and cluster systems.
