Cray and Microsoft accelerate deep learning training to minutes instead of weeks

A team of researchers from Microsoft, Cray, and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) have been working on a project to speed up the use of deep learning algorithms on supercomputers. They accelerated the training process. Instead of waiting weeks or months for results, data scientists can obtain results within hours or even minutes. With the introduction of supercomputing architectures and technologies to deep learning frameworks, customers now have the ability to solve a whole new class of problems, such as moving from image recognition to video recognition, and from simple speech recognition to natural language processing with context.The team have scaled the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit — an open-source suite that trains deep learning algorithms — to more than 1,000 Nvidia Tesla P100 GPU accelerators on the Swiss centre’s Cray…
