The future of Hardware for Deep Learning: Device and techniques for scaling model training

b
y Sylvain Viguier, AI Applications Team Lead at Graphcore

This session introduces a new class of devices for AI workload, the Intelligent Processing Unit or IPU. Sylvain will then expand on how scaling training of large ML models can be achieved in comparison of what other existing solutions might be. We will then conclude our review and sketch out what the coming years might look like.
