Cray Has Deep Learning Supercomputer in the Works

Home News Cray Has Deep Learning Supercomputer in the Works Michael Feldman | October 11, 2016 04:21 CEST As HPC vendors like IBM and HPE have added deep learning-optimized systems to their product portfolio, Cray has been more cirumspect about its plans in this area. We talked with Cray CTO Steve Scott about how they view this new application area of high performance computing and what they may have in the pipeline to serve this burgeoning market. If Cray, the quintessential HPC company, has a play here it’s because deep learning, at least the part that trains the neural networks, is a quintessential HPC application. It is both compute-intensive and data-intensive, demanding high performance processors, memory, networking, and I/O. And like the typical HPC application, it has insatiable demands for…
