Nvidia announces a supercomputer aimed at deep learning and AI

The sophisticated neural networks underlying systems like Google’s Deep Dream and all manner of interesting experiments require a great deal of computing power. Nvidia proposes to put all that horsepower in a single box, specially engineered to meet the needs of AI researchers.Nvidia already has GPUs specializing in deep learning applications, so this was a logical next step. It’s called the DGX-1, and it’s basically a fancy enclosure for an 8-GPU supercomputing cluster. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. There are 8 Tesla P100 cards in there with 16 GB of RAM each, plus 7 TB of storage for all the raw data you’ll be training your networks on. And there’s something called a NVLink Hybrid Cube Mesh, but I’m pretty sure that’s made up. Related Articles Oakland-based art…
