NVIDIA Doubles Performance for Deep Learning Training

NVIDIA today announced updates to its GPU-accelerated deep learning software that will double deep learning training performance.

The new software will empower data scientists and researchers to supercharge their deep learning projects and product development work by creating more accurate neural networks through faster model training and more sophisticated model design.

The NVIDIA(R) DIGITS(TM) Deep Learning GPU Training System version 2 (DIGITS 2) and NVIDIA CUDA(R) Deep Neural Network library version 3 (cuDNN 3) provide significant performance enhancements and new capabilities.

For data scientists, DIGITS 2 now delivers automatic scaling of neural network training across multiple high-performance GPUs. This can double the speed of deep neural network training for image classification compared to a single GPU.

For deep learning researchers, cuDNN 3 features optimized data storage in GPU memory for the training of larger, more sophisticated neural networks. cuDNN 3 also provides higher performance than cuDNN 2, enabling researchers to train neural networks up to two times faster on a single GPU.

The new cuDNN 3 library is expected to be integrated into forthcoming versions of the deep learning frameworks Caffe, Minerva, Theano and Torch, which are widely used to train deep neural networks.

"High-performance GPUs are the foundational technology powering deep learning research and product development at universities and major web-service companies," said Ian Buck, vice president of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. "We're working closely with data scientists, framework developers and the deep learning community to apply the most powerful GPU technologies and push the bounds of what's possible."

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.

Common Hiring Mistakes for SAP Consultants

2017-09-08 12:00:00 +0100

Choosing the wrong consultant can lead a project down a ruinous path. Deadlines get missed, quality of work decreases and money is wasted. When you're putting together a new SAP project, getting the right talent is paramount. We discussed hiring mistakes with our Senior Business Manager, Adam Blaney and asked him the question of how to minimise risk in hiring SAP Consultants. “Hiring any form of technology based consultant is difficult. The hardest part...
