Baidu’s Chief Scientist on Intersection of Supercomputing, Machine Learning

April 1, 2016 Nages Sieslack “AI is transforming the entire world of technology. Much of this progress is due to the ability of learning algorithms to spot patterns in larger and larger amounts of data. Today this is powering everything from web search to self-driving cars. This insatiable hunger for processing data has caused the bleeding edge of machine learning to shift from CPU computing, to cloud, to GPU, to HPC,” observes Andrew Ng, the Chief Scientist at Baidu. Ng will describe this in more detail at his much-anticipated upcoming talk, How HPC in Supercharging Machine Learning  at the June ISC High Performance conference in Frankfurt, Germany. To look ahead, we spoke to him to find out more about machine learning and how HPC fits into the machine learning ecosystem.…
