Work Package 2

Deep Learning and HPC

‌High Performance Computing (HPC) and Deep/machine Learning is forming the research focus of this work package. The recent development of optimisation techniques that can exploit deep structures and race-tuned implementation of Deep Learning on GPUs have resulted in pervasive and successful application of Deep Learning across the Big Data arena LBDN researchers are at the forefront of this research. Numerous notable successes have changed the conventional wisdom: neural networks (and machine learning more generally) now outperform hand-crafted algorithms across a diverse range of application domains.

The following projects are part of this work package:
