Nvidia GPUs are powering a revolution in machine learning. With the rise of deep learning algorithms, in particular deep convolutional neural networks, computers are learning to see, hear, and understand the world around us in ways never before possible. Image recognition and detection systems are getting close to human-level performance. I will explain what deep learning is, and how deep learning enables scientists to automatically process image data. This talk will show how computational scientists from various domains and practitioners can apply deep learning to solve their own research problems. NVIDIA’s recently released cuDNN library that supports deep learning efforts on GPUs will be introduced to demonstrate how these algorithms map efficiently to CUDA.
