DK Panda Team Launches High-Performance Deep Learning Project

Deep learning is one of the hottest topics at SC16. Now, DK Panda and his team at Ohio State University have announced an exciting new High-Performance Deep Learning project that aims to bring HPC technologies to the DL field. “Availability of large data sets like ImageNet and massively parallel computation support in modern HPC devices like NVIDIA GPUs have fueled a renewed interest in Deep Learning (DL) algorithms. This has triggered the development of DL frameworks like Caffe, Torch, TensorFlow, and CNTK. However, most DL frameworks have been limited to a single node. The objective of the HiDL project is to exploit modern HPC technologies and solutions to scale out and accelerate DL frameworks.”
