HPC Opportunities in Deep Learning
Location: Imperial B
Greg Diamos (Baidu)
This talk will provide empirical evidence that accuracy scales with data and compute, transforming some difficult AI problems into problems of computational scale. It will cover challenges to further improving performance, and outline a plan of attack for tearing down the remaining obstacles standing in the way of strong scaling deep learning to the largest machines in the world.
