Baidu Researcher Pushes GPU Scalability for Deep Learning

June 20, 2016

Greg Diamos, senior researcher, Silicon Valley AI Lab, Baidu, is on the front lines of the reinvigorated frontier of machine learning. Before joining Baidu, Diamos was in the employ of NVIDIA, first as a research scientist and then an architect (for the GPU streaming multiprocessor and the CUDA software). Given this background, it's natural that Diamos' research is focused on advancing breakthroughs in GPU-based deep learning. Ahead of a paper he is presenting at the 33rd International Conference on Machine Learning, Diamos answered questions about his research and his vision for the future of machine learning. Read more…
