Facebook this summer announced a breakthrough in neural network training. Its researchers were able to fully train an image processing AI in one hour, using 256 GPUs. Not to be outdone a group of university researchers did it in 32 minutes with 1600 Skylake processors. And a week later a team in Japan did it in 15 minutes. This is why we call it an AI race. The process of training a neural network is exactly how you’re picturing it. As long as you’re imagining it like this: Basically you jam as much data as you possibly can, as quickly…
