Talk: The Need for Speed: Benchmarking Deep Learning
Baidu released its open source benchmarking tool, DeepBench. This tool measures deep learning performance operations on various hardware, specifically for both training and inference operations.
Sharan will discuss the different techniques involved in training deep learning models and the challenges faced in measuring their performance. Because inference differs from training, and in order to see major improvements and advance deep learning, it is important to speed up inference for these algorithms. Sharan will subsequently discuss the key differences between inference and training, various techniques used to speed up deep learning inference, and walk audience members through the results achieved utilizing different platforms.
Startup.ML and General Assembly Present: Scaling Deep Learning
Presented by Startup.ML and GA, this conference will focus on the best practices for deploying deep learning models into production on a variety of hardware and cloud platforms.
