NYU Pushes Boundaries of Deep Learning as Newest GPU Center of Excellence

New Yorkers are fond of saying “Let’s talk.” But these days communication is increasingly being mastered by computers, thanks to advances in speech recognition, image understanding and language translation. New York University’s Center for Data Science is among the universities and institutions helping make these deep learning tasks, once considered esoteric, mainstream. It’s doing so by advancing two key areas of computer science: machine learning, and parallel and distributed systems. These enable application programmers to handle massive datasets easily and efficiently. Yann LeCun, founder of NYU’s Center of Data Science. Founded by deep learning pioneer Yann LeCun, who’s also director of AI Research at Facebook, the Center for Data Science has forged a strong alliance with NVIDIA as we work to advance GPU-based deep learning, parallel computing research and education.…
