Join us for the next Webinar on May 9, at 8am PST:

"Deeply-Pipelined FPGA Clusters Make CNN Training Scalable" 

This talk will introduce a framework, FPDeep, which use a hybrid of model and layer parallelism to configure distributed reconfigurable cluster to train DNNs. This leads to high parallelism and utilization and also minimizes the time features need to be cached while waiting for back-propagation. 

Register through this link.


About IXPUG:

The Intel eXtreme Performance Users Group (IXPUG) is an independent users group whose mission is to provide a forum for the free exchange of information that enhances the usability and efficiency of scientific and technical applications running on High Performance Computing (HPC), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Data Analytics (DA) systems using advanced Intel technologies, e.g. processors and reconfigurable devices, memory subsystems, and high-speed interconnects. IXPUG is administered by representatives of member sites that operate large Intel-based HPC systems.
