NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform to Power Facebook’s Next-Gen Computing System

NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform to Power Facebook’s Next-Gen Computing SystemIT News Online Staff2015-12-12 NVIDIA announced that Facebook will power its next-generation computing system with the NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform, enabling it to drive a broad range of machine learning applications. While training complex deep neural networks to conduct machine learning can take days or weeks on even the fastest computers, the Tesla platform can slash this by 10x-20x. As a result, developers can innovate more quickly and train networks that are more sophisticated, delivering improved capabilities to consumers.Facebook is the first company to adopt NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU accelerators, introduced last month, to train deep neural networks. They will play a key role in the new “Big Sur” computing platform, Facebook AI Research’s (FAIR) purpose-built system designed specifically‚Ķ
