The Yahoo Behind Fresh Deep Learning Approaches at Flickr

September 3, 2015 Nicole Hemsoth There are few more interesting trends in infrastructure right now than the pairing between high performance computing hardware and the software tapestries of deep neural networks. And it’s not simply that it is all relatively new, but rather, it is because the range of tools on both fronts is shifting–moving away from hardware and software platforms that have outlived their efficiencies or scalability limits. When The Platform talked to Yahoo earlier in the year about the very issue of outpacing existing technologies, it was a matter of growing hardware infrastructure to meet data demands. And as the company expands its services for divisions like the photo-centric Flickr service, it is pulling the best of several worlds in both hardware and software to cobble together yet…
