Over at Marc Hamiliton’s Blog, Marc writes that the GPU Technology Conference next week will reflect some exciting industry trends in vGPU virtualization, Big Data, and energy-efficient ARM processing.
We have seen an explosion in the use of GPUs for machine learning and pattern recognition. Much of this is going on in Internet data centers. A great example is discussed in this Netflix Blog discussing their experiences using GPU Instances on Amazon Web Services to run distributed neural networks for their recommendation engine. Commercial companies aren’t missing out on this trend either. With all the international travel I have been doing, I especially enjoy using the credit card from the provider who I know is using NVIDIA GPUs to identify potentially fraudulent transactions.
