IBM and Nvidia team up to create deep learning hardware

Deep learning continues to gather steam in corporate computing, and IBM and Nvidia are teaming up to help accelerate the foundation behind artificial intelligence breakthroughs. The two companies are collaborating on a deep learning solution that melds technology from both companies in a bid to speed up the process of training computers to think and learn more like humans do. A new software toolkit available today called IBM PowerAI is designed to run on the recently announced IBM server built for artificial intelligence that features Nvidia NVLink technology optimized for IBM’s Power Architecture. The hardware-software solution provides more than two times the performance of comparable servers with four graphics processing units (GPUs) running AlexNet with Caffe. The same four-GPU Power-based configuration running AlexNet with BVLC Caffe can also outperform 8-M40…
