Video: Deep Learning for the Enterprise with POWER9

Sumit Gupta from IBM gave this talk at H2O World. “From chat bots, to recommendation engines, to Google Voice and Apple Siri, AI has begun to permeate our lives. We will demystify what AI is, present the difference between machine learning and deep learning, why the huge interest now, show some fun use cases and demos, and then discuss use cases of how deep learning based AI methods can be used to garner insights from data for enterprises. We will also talk about what IBM is doing to make deep learning and machine learning more accessible and useful to a broader set of data scientists, and how to build out the right hardware infrastructure.”

IBM Scales TensorFlow and Caffe to 256 GPUs

Over at IBM, Sumit Gupta writes that the company has enabled record-breaking image recognition capabilities that make Deep Learning much more practical at scale. “The bottom line is that the record IBM broke slashes Deep Learning training time from days to hours, which will enable customers to more easily address larger technical challenges significantly faster.”

IBM Adds TensorFlow Support for PowerAI Deep Learning

Today IBM announced that its PowerAI distribution for popular open source Machine Learning and Deep Learning frameworks on the POWER8 architecture now supports the TensorFlow 0.12 framework that was originally created by Google. TensorFlow support through IBM PowerAI provides enterprises with another option for fast, flexible, and production-ready tools and support for developing advanced machine learning products and systems.
