Baidu Researcher Pushes GPU Scalability for Deep Learning

Editor’s Note: While Andrew Ng, chief scientist at Baidu was delivering his ISC keynote this morning on how HPC is supercharging AI, his colleague Greg Diamos, research scientist at Baidu’s Silicon Valley AI Lab, was preparing to present a paper on GPU-based deep learning at the 33rd International Conference on Machine Learning in New York. Greg Diamos, senior researcher, Silicon Valley AI Lab, Baidu, is on the front lines of the reinvigorated frontier of machine learning. Before joining Baidu, Diamos was in the employ of NVIDIA, first as a research scientist and then an architect (for the GPU streaming multiprocessor and the CUDA software). Given this background, it’s natural that Diamos’ research is focused on advancing breakthroughs in GPU-based deep learning. Ahead of the paper he is presenting, Diamos answered questions about his research and…
