1000x Faster Deep-Learning at Petascale Using Intel Xeon Phi Processors

A cumulative effort over several years to scale the training of deep-learning neural networks has resulted in the first demonstration of petascale deep-learning training performance, and further to deliver this performance when solving real science problems. The result reflects the combined efforts of NERSC (National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center), Stanford and Intel to solve real world use cases rather than simply report on performance benchmarks.

The AI Revolution: Unleashing Broad and Deep Innovation

For the AI revolution to move into the mainstream, cost and complexity must be reduced, so smaller organizations can afford to develop, train and deploy powerful deep learning applications. It’s a tough challenge. The following guest article from Intel explores how businesses can optimize AI applications and integrate them with their traditional workloads. 

The Intel Scalable System Framework: Kick-Starting the AI Revolution

Like many other HPC workloads, deep learning is a tightly coupled application that alternates between compute-intensive number-crunching and high-volume data sharing. Intel explores how the Intel Scalable System can act as a solution for a high performance computing platform that can run deep learning workloads and more. 

A Simpler Path to Reliable, Productive HPC

HPC is becoming a competitive requirement as high performance data analysis (HPDA) joins multi-physics simulation as table stakes for successful innovation across a growing range of industries and research disciplines. Yet complexity remains a very real hurdle for both new and experienced HPC users.
