Brain surgery for deep learning

Neural networks are likely to be in charge of cars. What can we do about their raging thirst for compute power? The scramble to create a self-driving car is underway. The question is what kind of software will control it. The current hot favourite for giving a computer some sense of understanding of what is in front of it on the road is deep learning – a second attempt to take neural networks mainstream that has been made possible by a massive increase in compute power since artificial neural networks first hit the R&D community. The graphics chipmaker nVidia has done pretty well out of the revolution so far because its GPUs happen to run deep-learning applications faster than conventional processors. However, even these are bumping up against limits. The number of…
