Spark ML Runs 10x Faster on GPUs, Databricks Says

Apache Spark machine learning workloads can run up to 10x faster by moving them to a deep learning paradigm on GPUs, according to Databricks, which today announced that its hosted Spark service on Amazon’s new GPU cloud. Databricks, the primary commercial venture behind Apache Spark, today announced that it’s now supporting TensorFrames, the new Spark library based on Google‘s (NASDAQ: GOOG) TensorFlow deep learning framework, on its hosted Spark service, which runs on Amazon Web Services (NASDAQ: AMZM). The deep learning service will be generally available within two weeks, the company says. TensorFrames, which was unveiled this March as a technical preview, lets Spark harness TensorFlow for the purpose of programing deep neural networks, the primary computational method powering so-called “deep learning” algorithms. TensorFrames is also available to on-prem Spark…
