Cray Works with Industry Leaders to Reach New Performance Milestone for Deep Learning at Scale

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.

Pikazo: Deep Neural Network Art on Intel Architecture

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.”
