NEC Vector Computers Accelerate Machine Learning

Today NEC Corporation announced that it has developed new Aurora Vector Engine data processing technology that accelerates the execution of machine learning on vector computers by more than 50 times in comparison to Spark technologies. “This technology enables users to quickly benefit from the results of machine learning, including the optimized placement of web advertisements, recommendations, and document analysis,” said Yuichi Nakamura, General Manager, System Platform Research Laboratories, NEC Corporation. “Furthermore, low-cost analysis using a small number of servers enables a wide range of users to take advantage of large-scale data analysis that was formerly only available to large companies.”
