Intel Furthers Machine Learning Capabilities

Rob Farber In this special guest feature, Rob Farber from TechEnablement writes that Intel is ramping up its efforts around Machine Learning. Intel provided a wealth of machine learning announcements following the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor (formerly known as Knights Landing) announcement at ISC’16. Building upon the various technologies in Intel® Scalable System Framework (Intel® SSF), the machine learning community can expect up to 38% better scaling over GPU-accelerated machine learning* and an up to 50x speedup when using 128 Intel Xeon Phi nodes compared to a single Intel Xeon Phi node*. The company also announced an up to 30x improvement in inference performance* (also known as scoring or prediction) on the Intel® Xeon E5 product family due to an optimized Intel Caffe plus Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL)…
