SuperComputing 2017: Deep Learning, Servers and Tech Talks

0 0 2,356



[Originally posted on 11/21/17]


This year at SC17, AMD showcased Radeon Instinct™ accelerators, AMD EPYC™ processors and the ROCm open software platform – a complete ecosystem to drive a new era in the datacenter. Our booth was packed with server racks from partners like Inventec, Gigabyte, Supermicro and BOXX. Attendees had the opportunity to check out Project 47, both on display and running demos, offering 1 PetaFLOPS of compute power.


The much anticipated TensorFlow support with ROCm 1.7 was revealed in our booth alongside a demo of deep learning inference from a trained Caffe model. AMD also offered hourly Tech Talks, diving into a wide range of topics – from AMD EPYC™ performance to Radeon technology powering the exploration of dark energy with the CHIME radio telescope.


Thank you to everyone that joined us at SC17. For those that were unable to attend, check out our photo gallery below. We hope to see you next year at SC18!
