Deep Learning, also referred to as Artificial Intelligence is the fastest-growing field in machine learning. It uses many-layered Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) to learn levels of representation and abstraction that make sense of data such as images, sound, and text. Deep learning is used widely in the research community to help solve many big data problems such as computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing.
Practical examples include:
- Vehicle, pedestrian and landmark identification for driver assistance
- Image recognition
- Speech recognition and translation
- Natural language processing
- Life sciences
XENON – centred on the Melbourne district – offers a variety of Deep Learning solutions which focus on GPU power due to its intensive parallel computation ability.
These solutions include:
XENON is the exclusive Australian distributor of NVIDIA DGX-1™ supercomputer which enables data scientists and artificial intelligence (AI) researchers to acquire the accuracy, simplicity, and speed they need for deep learning success. Faster training and iteration ultimately means faster innovation and time-to-market.
The world’s first purpose-built system optimized for deep learning, with fully integrated hardware and software that can be deployed quickly and easily. Its revolutionary performance significantly accelerates training time, making it the world’s first deep learning supercomputer in a box.
- Built with groundbreaking Pascal™-powered NVIDIA® Tesla® P100 GPU accelerators, interconnected with NVIDIA® NVLink™
- Software stack includes major deep learning frameworks, the NVIDIA® Deep Learning SDK, the DIGITS™ GPU training system, drivers, and CUDA®,for designing the most accurate deep neural networks (DNN)
