Microsoft, Cray claim deep learning breakthrough on supercomputers

Image: Cray 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. 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 XC50 supercomputer, which is nicknamed Piz Daint. The project could allow researchers to run larger, more complex, and multi-layered deep learning workloads at scale on the supercomputers, Cray said. Deep learning is an emerging branch of machine learning, which uses multiple processing layers to work on complicated problems. And while researchers want to run larger deep-learning models, conventional systems and architectures limit the problems that…
