Deep Learning with GPUs


High-performance GPUs are the foundational technology powering deep learning research and product development at universities and in industry. This talk will begin with a brief history of Deep Learning, explaining why NVIDIA GPUs together with large datasets are the key enablers for recent advances in the field. We will then look more deeply at how NVIDIA is investing in software and hardware advances to benefit Deep Learning, including cuDNN and other libraries, the DIGITS platform and technologies such as NVLink and FP16. Finally we will see how some of the major frameworks enable researchers to train DL models using GPUs to accelerate time to discovery.
