Baidu Looks to Next Generation Deep Learning Accelerators

January 21, 2016 Nicole Hemsoth If the last year of stories here from research labs at the forefront of deep learning hasn’t made it clear, the accelerator of choice for training the models that will feed the next generation of speech and image recognition (not to mention a wealth of other application areas) is certainly GPUs. However, if there is something else that should be clear from reading, the next best thing is always around the corner—and companies whose business it is to be the most efficient, highest performance, and cost effective with their computations are always keeping an eye open for what’s around the bend. Erich Elsen, a research scientist at Baidu working with speech recognition systems and software, laughed lightly when asked if there were any centers doing…
