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."

With International Women’s Day being all about celebrating the cultural, economic, political and social achievements of women, it highlights the issue of women in technology, which remains a contentious one. Recent research from WISE, which campaigns for gender balance in science, technology and engineering, found that women only make up just 17 per cent of all IT professionals in the UK. Montash Recruitment Consultant Sadiye Booker has shared her exper...
