New post in Medium about Distributed TensorFlow using Horovod and how to reduce training time for deep neural networks by using many GPUs.The content of this medium post will be used in my master course SA-MIRI at UPC Barcelona Tech with the support of Barcelona Supercomputing Center.
New post in Medium about TensorFlow Estimators, a High-level TensorFlow API that greatly simplifies machine learning programming introduced in a white paper in 2017. This post will be used in my master course SA-MIRI at UPC Barcelona Tech with the support of Barcelona Supercomputing Center.
Would you like to join us? Call open for a Junior Research Engineer to work in our research group at BSC-CNS . Our research group is working on Supercomputing for Artificial Intelligence, in particular right now with a special focus on Deep Learning. In this context, we have some projects with big companies. The open position will be assigned to [...]
TensorFlow 1.10 has been released! Continuing the recent trend of rapid updates introducing significant fixes and new features, Tensorflow has released its version Tensorflow 1.10 during my summer vacations. Great! This is good for our research in Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning at BSC. The full release notes for details on added features and changes that version 1.10 [...]
BSC-CNS at NIPS2017, a top Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence conference BSC-CNS will be present at the 31th Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS 2017), a machine learning and computational neuroscience conference that includes invited talks, demonstrations and oral and poster presentations. It covers topics ranging from deep learning and computer vision to cognitive science and reinforcement learning. NIPS is one of [...]
First steps with TensorFlow In reality, this post was intended for my DLAI course's students, although I think it may be of interest to other students. I am going to share in this blog the teaching material that I am going to generate for the part of DLAI course that will cover the basic principles of Deep Learning from [...]
www.TORRES.AI/DeepLearning Primeros pasos en Keras Keras es una librería de Python que proporciona de manera limpia y sencilla la creación de una gama de modelos de Deep Learning encima de otras librerías TensorFlow, Theano o CNTK. Keras fue desarrollado y es mantenido por François Chollet, un ingeniero de Google, y su código ha sido liberado bajo la licencia [...]
www.JordiTorres.Barcelona/DeepLearning . . Keras is a Python library that provides a clean and convenient way to create a range of deep learning models on top of powerful libraries such as TensorFlow, Theano (update about Theano) or CNTK. Keras was developed and maintained by François Chollet, a Google engineer and it is released under the permissive MIT license. [...]
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 [...]
This is great news for my book! It confirms that TensorFlow is a good choice for you too! For nearly four years, the open source Torch7 machine learning library has served as primary research platform at DeepMind. Now it is time of TensorFlow. You can know more details in this post at Google Research Blog.
Few hours ago Google announced his TensorFlow 0.8 that includes distributed computing support. As we already presented in this blog, distributed TensorFlow is powered by the high-performance gRPC library, which supports training on hundreds of machines in parallel according Google post. It complements the recent announcement of Google Cloud Machine Learning, which enables us to use the Google Cloud Platform. The post also announces [...]
The calçotada season is coming to an end. Keep this excellent recipe from Tampa Bay Times for next year. Now it is time to read First contact with TensorFlow book. Already available a paper version, PDF version and Kindle version. Also this book is going to be freely available on-line in my web page (html version) next April 23th , Saint George's day (Sant Jordi Day). [...]
