NVIDIA dives deep into AI with DGX-1 Deep Learning Supercomputer

The past few weeks have been very busy and fortunate for artificial intelligence. Last month saw the triumph of AlphaGo, from Google’s DeepMind AI arm, against a human Go champion. Microsoft and Facebook both just revealed new projects and features that utilized neural network and AI for the benefit of people with impaired vision. Following up on its reveal of the Drive PX 2 autonomous race car, NVIDIA is announcing a more serious AI pursuit, the DGX-1 Deep Learning supercomputer that promises a throughput equivalent to 250 regular servers. It might sound a bit odd that NVIDIA is announcing a supercomputer since its core business is developing and creating graphics chips. GPUs, however, are specialized processors noted for being more efficient than a general purpose CPU at fast crunching of…
