Future Cray Clusters to Storm Deep Learning

April 18, 2016 Nicole Hemsoth Supercomputer maker Cray might not roll out machines for deep learning anytime in 2016, but like other system vendors with deep roots in high performance computing, which leverages many of the same hardware elements (strong interconnect and GPU acceleration, among others), they are seeing how to loop their expertise into a future where machine learning rules. As Cray CTO, Steve Scott, tells The Next Platform, “Deep learning and machine learning dovetails with our overall strategy and that overall merger between HPC and analytics that has already happened,” Scott says. HPC is not just one single application or set of them, there are many, all with different needs with respect to interconnect, compute, memory systems, storage, and IO. Deep learning is just another set of applications…
