Huawei: GPUs Won’t Dominate Machine Learning In The Future

Today, a lot of high-profile deep machine learning projects in the cloud are powered by GPUs; specifically NVIDIA GPUs. Even Facebook uses them for its own machine learning work behind-the-scenes. GPUs are able to handle the massive amounts of computing power required to train deep neural networks that facilitate these projects. But Huawei deputy chairman and rotating CEO Eric Xu believes the future of machine learning lies in dedicated processors. Read on to find out more. In the past few years, NVIDIA has made a big push to dethrone CPUs in the deep machine learning space. With its Tesla line of GPU accelerators, it managed to secure support from the likes of Facebook, which uses NVIDIA GPUs for its Big Sur purpose-built deep neural networks system. IBM has added support…
