Google Updates TensorFlow Open Source Machine Learning Platform

Posted 25 minutes ago by STUART PARKERSON, PublisherGoogle’s TensorFlow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. The architecture provides the ability to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API.It its recent release of TensorFlow 0.8, Google is introducing distributed computing support, including everything needed to train distributed models on a company’s infrastructure. Distributed TensorFlow is powered by the high-performance gRPC library, which supports training on hundreds of machines in parallel. Google has published a distributed trainer for the Inception image classification neural network in the TensorFlow models repository. Using the distributed trainer, Google reports that it trained the Inception network to 78% accuracy in less than 65 hours using 100 GPUs. Small clusters can…
