Deep Learning methods are providing algorithms to tackle some of the most complex problems in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Only recently has it become computationally feasible to apply these algorithms in the areas of computer vision and image recognition, for example. Today’s most advanced graphics processors provide the processing power required to develop, train, and apply deep neural networks.
In this presentation, we will show how MATLAB and NVIDIA’s Deep Learning SDK can be used for object recognition and computer vision using deep convolutional neural networks. We will provide insight into the software framework as well as the hardware architectures and platforms for researchers, big data, as well as embedded solutions. The presentation will conclude with an outlook to the next generation of GPUs.
CTO and Head of R&D,
With a background in nanotechnology and expertise in computational science and high performance computing systems, Werner brings his experience from leading edge research and development organisations in Europe and the US to XENON. He has more than 15 years’ experience with high performance computing systems – from individual workstations and storage servers to massively parallel HPC clusters and large storage systems. He is also the developer of an open source finite element simulation package, which uses MPI, OpenMP, and GPU parallelization techniques. It is in used by academic and industrial research organisations around the world. Werner has a PhD in physics from the Vienna University of Technology in Austria, where he specialised in computational physics and magnetic materials. He is the author of more than 80 journal articles in the area of computational physics and magnetic nanostructures and co-inventor of 12 patents related to magnetic storage technologies.
NVIDIA Australia & NZ
Mike is NVIDIA’s Solutions Architect for Australia and New Zealand regions. In this role, Mike coordinates with technology vendors and startups, both within the region and worldwide, enabling NVIDIA and its partners to deliver the best possible solutions. With a background in Mechanical Engineering and Laws from the University of Melbourne, Mike has had strong relationships with many Universities and national research centres for over 10 years. He has developed GPU-accelerated software as part of his PhD research work, and trained many students and researchers to accelerate their own code on the CUDA platform. He is excited to be able to offer NVIDIA’s Deep Learning platform to complement existing predictive models across all sectors of data analytics and research within environments such as MATLAB.
