Chris Nicol, CTO at Wave Computing, presents the "New Dataflow Architecture for Machine Learning" tutorial at the May 2017 Embedded Vision Summit.

Data scientists have made tremendous advances in the use of deep neural networks (DNNs) to enhance business models and service offerings. But training DNNs can take a week or more using traditional hardware solutions that rely on legacy architectures that are limited in performance and scalability. New innovations that can reduce training time for both image-centric and text-centric deep neural networks will lead to an explosion of new applications. Dr. Chris Nicol, Wave Computing’s Chief Technology Officer, examines the performance challenge faced by data scientists today. Nicol outlines the technical factors underlying this bottleneck for systems relying on CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and ASICs, and introduces a new dataflow-centric approach to DNN training.
