Deep Learning the GPU Way

Here is a brief profile of deep learning technology and how GPUs are scoring early victories in this space. Image courtesy of NVIDIA. Deep learning, which is a subset of machine learning technology, is rapidly moving into the mainstream designs at the intersection of GPU, FPGA, and DSP silicon building blocks. It’s a technique that teaches a compute engine to carry out a task instead of programming it to do so. Deep learning, rooted in the artificial intelligence technology, has a broad application in automotive, healthcare, imaging and security industries where it carries out tasks such as video analysis, facial recognition, and image classification. For instance, self-driving cars are a major beneficiary of the deep learning-enabled chips that monitor data from cameras, LiDAR and other sensors to recognize objects and…
