Michael Feldman | December 19, 2016 18:09 CET Cray’s recent announcement about how its XC50 supercomputer plus Microsoft’s Cognitive Toolkit was used to scale up training of a neural network serves as a proof point on how topflight HPC technologies can be used to push the boundaries of deep learning. But the company’s long game is to bring supercomputing into the realm of deep learning and the broader category of data analytics in a more generalized fashion. The XC50 in question is “Piz Daint,” the 9.8-petaflop system housed at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS), which was recently upgraded with 4,500 of NVIDIA’s new P100 GPUs.  Each of those GPUs is able to deliver over 5.3 teraflops of double precision floating point performance, 10.6 teraflops of single precision performance, or 21.2 teraflops…
