Moore’s law: The second half of the board

2018-09-24T11:44:12+00:00September 24th, 2018|

Today in the section ECONOMIA of the Barcelona newspaper LA VANGUARDIA, the journalist Josep Maria Ganyet has explained the "Moore's Law" in a very ingenious way for a general public. Moore's Law is the "law" that has most conditioned us (until now) in our world of Supercomputing research. Here I leave the translation so that I [...]

Caffe2: A new player on the scene of Deep Learning frameworks

2017-08-17T16:34:41+00:00April 25th, 2017|

Few days ago Facebook announced Caffe2, a new open-source, cross-platform framework for deep learning. They say that Caffe2 is the successor to Caffe ( really?), the deep learning framework developed by Berkeley AI Research and community contributors. Caffe2’s GitHub page describes it as “an experimental refactoring of Caffe that allows a more flexible way to organize computation.” As my readers know, when [...]
