The 24th annual HPCC conference in Newport has gotten started. I’ll be twittering updates as I can (in between paying attention and chairing today’s session). If you want to keep up follow hashtag #newport_hpc, or just look for my updates.
Are supercomputers practical for Deep Learning applications? Over at the Allinea Blog, Mark O'Connor writes that a recent experiment with machine learning optimization on the Archer supercomputer shows that relatively simple models run at sufficiently large scale can readily outperform more complex but less scalable models. "In the open science world, anyone running a HPC cluster can expect to see a surge in the number of people wanting to run deep learning workloads over the coming months." [Read More...]
