NVIDIA has been a pioneer in accelerating deep learning and has been developing deep learning software, libraries and tools for a number of years. Today's deep learning solutions rely almost exclusively on NVIDIA GPU-accelerated computing to train and speed up challenging applications such as image, handwriting, and voice identification.
This presentation will provide an overview about the latest hardware and software developments for deep learning at NVIDIA, focusing in particular on NVIDIA® DGX-1™, the world’s first purpose-built system for deep learning. The software stack includes major deep learning frameworks, the NVIDIA Deep Learning SDK, the DIGITS™ GPU training system, drivers, and CUDA® for rapidly designing deep neural networks (DNN). This powerful system also provides access to cloud management services for container creation and deployment, system updates, and an application repository.
