Feedback form is now closed.
In this talk, we will introduce the latest developments in distributed Deep Learning and how distribution can both massively reduce training time and support parallel experimentation, for large-scale hyperparameter optimization. We will introduce different distributed architectures, including the parameter server and Ring-AllReduce models. In particular, we will describe open-source TensorFlow frameworks that leverage Apache Spark to manage distributed training, such as Yahoo’s TensorflowOnSpark, Databrick’s Deep Learning Pipelines, Uber’s Horovod platform, and Hops’ Hyperparameter Optimization framework for Spark/TensorFLow. We will introduce the different programming models supported and highlight the importance of cluster support for managing GPUs as a resource.
