Overcoming Challenges to Deep Learning Infrastructure

With use cases like computer vision, natural language processing, predictive modeling, and much more, deep learning (DL) provides the kinds of far-reaching applications that change the way technology can impact human existence. The possibilities are limitless, and we’ve just scratched the surface of its potential. There are three significant obstacles for you to be aware of when designing a deep learning infrastructure: scalability, customizing for each workload, and optimizing workload performance.

Recent Results Show HBM Can Make CPUs the Desired Platform for AI and HPC

Third-party performance benchmarks show CPUs with HBM2e memory now have sufficient memory bandwidth and computational capabilities to match GPU performance on many HPC and AI workloads. Recent Intel and third-party benchmarks now provide hard evidence that the upcoming Intel® Xeon® processors codenamed Sapphire Rapids with high bandwidth memory (fast, high bandwidth HBM2e memory) and Intel® Advanced Matrix Extensions can match the performance of GPUs for many AI and HPC workloads.
