Baidu Researcher: Why Machine Learning is Advancing Rapidly

Note: This article originally appeared in our sister publication, HPCwire. Greg Diamos, senior researcher, Silicon Valley AI Lab, Baidu (the China-based web services and search engine company), 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 machine learning. He answered questions about his research and his machine learning vision. HPCwire: How would you characterize the current era of machine learning? Greg Diamos Diamos: There are two strong forces in machine learning. One is big data, or the availability of massive data sets enabled by…
